CVU Nordic News
Week of Jan 18
Thank you to everyone who helped with the races- including Allan Miller and John Rodd for helping at the waxing table!
On Friday we will go to the Ethan Allen Training Center in Jericho for the MMU continuous pursuit race. I am limited to only entering 10 varsity skiers for this race. Everyone else will be in the JV race. The JV race is skate only; the varsity race starts out as a 3k classic, the top 30 will then do a quick change over to skate skis, then race a 3k skate race. All details and schedule are on the webpage.
One note- the bus for this race is drop off only. There is a large warming building for folks and because so many parents typically come to this race we don't have the bus stay. IF you are having trouble finding a ride home please talk to one of the coaches - we will get you a ride home! Skiers who want to drive their cars- I do need a note saying it is okay to drive (the range is outside our district so the school wants another note or email).
While there will be skiers of ALL abilities and levels at the races, this race is part of 2 series of races for some of the top level of skiers in the US. Traveling to, and racing, in this race is a wonderful experience to move you onto the next level of skiing. We encourage everyone to race, but if the caliber of skiing intimates you- come to watch- it is amazing to see the top skiers in the US! Plus Lake Placid is just a fun town!
