As our U16 qualifiers were winding down to a close, we had many kids in contention for the Junior Olympics. John, Matt, and I were doing everything we could to get them to tuck stronger and take that extra little bit of speed to the soft and typical snowy track at Mt. Bachelor. Without speed training at home this season, the Sun Cup week became our speed training and racing at the same time. We again proved to be one of the strongest speed teams in the Northwest, despite the limited tuck and gliding training this season. Our years of experience came shining through, plus the determination of our coaches to push the issue on carving for speed and maximizing the aerodynamics, the kids responded very well and skied very fast.
We were again placing 4 and 5 racers in the top ten with Ty winning one SG and Katie also on the podium with a second in a SG. So many results, you'll have to check them out on the USSA pages.
