It's been a long time since anyone has posted to this blog, a testament to all the hard work we've been doing, both in school and training!
In just 3 days we'll pack up and head to the Colorado Mesa Invitational on Grand Mesa for our first USCSA Qualifier. This is one of the best races of the season with amazing snow and fantastic trails! We have a 1.5km skate sprint on Saturday January 3 and a 10km classic on Sunday January 4. Great fun to be had by everyone!
We're extremely excited because we often struggle to get athletes to come back early from break for this race but we will be taking a full contingent of 9 women and 9 men! Woo Hoo!
Following the CMU races we'll head to Soldier Hollow for the University of Utah Invitational, racing with the big dogs!
Then a weekend of home racing and then the Elite team is off to Slovakia for the World Univeristy Games while the Competitive team will be doing the Stagecoach Classic in Winter Park. Such an amazing and exciting first month of racing.

We're stoked for an amazing season with a truly fantastic group of athletes.
BRING ON THE RACING!!!!
