[Sorry - a little late getting these results out...]
One thing about the White Pine Stampede: They will have a race no matter what! Snow drought and warm temperatures stole the snow over most of the traditional course, and the 50k event had to be eliminated, but snow on the Schuss Mountain golf course plus a little new snow at the last moment let the race carry on. Great Job, Shanty Creek Resorts! You've been doing a great job with the trails these past two or three years!
A pair of Minnesota skiers, in a close finish, stole the show in the Men's 20k event, and the University of Michigan Nordic Ski Club showed up in force in the 20km classic.
Race Director Jack McKaig with 20k Classic and Freestyle winners; Tay Tantavirun, Abby Potts, Thomas Kendrick, and Jordyn Ross.
Tony Percha reported, "Cold but firm snow, about 14F with falling snow. The course was gently rolling with a series of five hills that become more difficult with each of the 4 laps". Doug Cornell said, "It did not feel flat - Lots of false flats, actually." There were three dirty road crossing each lap.
