In the women's race, Knappster notched another top-30 for the season, finishing 26th. Elena was just 10 seconds behind her in 30th and Holly (last Williams Carnival!) placed 40th.
It was sad to have to move our home carnival away from Prospect, but the whole team chipped in to help run things smoothly for the one-day classic race at Craftsbury Nordic Center in Craftsbury, VT. The Center also did a great job grooming their fun 5k course, which both men and women raced two laps of during their 10 k individual start races. It was warm and overcast, klister kick on icy tracks with a couple sugary downhills.
I did not get photos of the women's race, as I was still testing and waxing for the men's race. (btw: both Hannah H. and Kalle were a HUGE help testing skis in the early morning hours and throughout the day!)
Also: huge thanks to Dave Dethier and Dick Nesbitt for helping with timing and skis! And to the Whitney's for organizing the post-race food table!
