Alpenglow Freestyle

Truckee XC went into this weekend with guns a blazing!

Participating in the Supper JO Qualifiers at Soldier Hollow, Utah, Russell Kennedy had 2 podium finishes. A second in the freestyle sprints and a first place in the 15k classic. (This classic course is known as one of the toughest in North America!)

Back at home the scheduled race was overlooking beautiful Lake Tahoe at the Tahoe City Nordic Center. This is a very popular annual 20k race sponsored by Alpenglow Sports. It is a one lap course, with spectacular views and has all aspects of Nordic racing. Good climbing and good descents broken up with flat rolling terrain.

Truckee XC and other Rossignol skiers proved they weren’t too old to play with the youngsters on these beautifully groomed trails.

In the women’s race;

1st Debbie Hakannson Truckee XC

2nd Julie Young Rossignol

3rd Susan Reynolds Truckee XC

4th Laura Stern Truckee XC

In the men’s race:

1st Adam Wright Sugar Bowl Academy

2nd Rick Reynolds Truckee XC

3rd Dan Buchanan Rossignol

7th Chris McGovern Truckee XC

Snow conditions were hard and fast with air temp. at the start in the mid 20’s and climbing under sunny skies.

The Toko wax choice was simple RED/RED!

Special thanks to all our sponsors, without you guys results like this wouldn’t happen.
