MSU and UU Invite Recap and Photos

The first two college race weekends have came and gone! Newcomer Maria Grafnings got off to a strong start with four top 10's. Fellow Swede, and senior, Kristin also raced in the top 10 at the MSU innovational in the mass start skate race. Ase slipped a disk this fall and is just now getting back into skiing. She will do 3 hard intervals to tune her up for next weeks races in Red River, NM. 

On the mens side it was a rough start to the season. We have had good training, and we have stayed relatively healthy, but we did not show up. The skiers tried hard, but it was clear that these were our first races. It was also clear that the volume training was still leaving a little rust... However, August B. was able to have one of his best college classic skis and Charlie Smith who is back from a  break to Thailand and Indonesia, had the best result of the trip with a 15th. This week we have done some L4 intervals to open the longs, break off any rust that SOHO did not, and increase our speed efficiency.  

Here are some photos from the road. You can also find some video on youtube. 

On the Road again!
