Yep, its a distance classic year... UVM Carnival

This past weekend, the team ventured over to Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe for the UVM Carnival. The weather was still cold, but much more predictable than over in Maine. 

It was a good weekend of racing, starting off with a 10km Individual Start freestyle for the men. Now, this event has historically been one of my better events at Trapps. And this day it still went well, just not quite where it has been in the past.

Bates Carnival and EC #2

One down, five to go.

This past weekend, the team traveled to Rumford, ME for the Bates College Carnival and the second Eastern Cup of the season.

This venue is known for hosting some high caliber races, and the competition there was just that. On Friday, we started things off with a 20km Classic Mass Start. Now, if we remember back to last season, I raced in one 20km Classic at Dartmouth, and did not finish. Well, this time went a little differently. I was not (as) sick, and I wasn't alone. 
Definitely not alone. (Silke Hynes/EISA Photo)
