Nordic Racing Season Is On!

Academy Nordic skiers launched their 2012-2013 racing seasons at the first USSA SuperTour series event in West Yellowstone, Montana this past weekend.  Dakota Blackhorse, Reitler Hodgert and Lars Ellefson will be racing at the very highest level of Nordic competitions this year which includes the USSA SuperTour Series– 23 days of Nordic racing with over $120,000 in prize money across the United States. Results from the first SuperTour races are available here. According to the Academy’s Nordic Program Director, Ben Husaby, “Conditions were tough this year in West Yellowstone. We were skiing at a higher elevation on low snow conditions. The team is looking forward to 3 more SuperTour races in Bozeman, Montanta next weekend.” Notable results include a 6th place finish for Blackhorse in the 1.6km prologue. Photos via fasterskier.com
