CXC Summer Championships

In addition to a very demanding week of volume, we also had an intense Saturday as everyone took part in the CXC Summer Championships. This is a 3 stage race with an overall title winner. The three stages are a 5k trailrun, a 2.5k classic rollerski prologue and skate sprint finals in downtown Cable. I competed in the rollerski stages only since I have been sidelined for a bit from running with a foot injury.

The classic prologue felt alright for me although I was beat by over 30 seconds by the winner Karl Nygren and finished 11th overall. The skate sprint however went well and I was able to come away with the win. It was an exciting atmosphere with music and the downtown city block roped off for us. Overall, it was a solid intensity session and good to put the bib on and go all out. Here are the results from the skate.
