We have just wrapped a crazy weekend of racing in Minneapolis. Saturday's race was a 10k skate, Sunday was a 20k classic mass start. The races went alrightfor me. Sunday was better finishing 21st in the large competitive field. Racing in Minnesota, I actually feel at home. Having raced much of my college career here, I know a lot of people, and seem to get lots of cheering from friends and friends' parents. Check out some the pictures and the race video below! Thanks to skinnyski.com for all the coverage this weekend

Men's 20k Classic Mass Start
With Saturday's temperature climbing to +6C and Sunday's race temperature dipping down to -18C an icy course was in store for us. There were probably 50 crashes and a dozen broken poles out there during our race. Definitely needed to be alert and ready for anything!
Big Thanks to James Kyes (Lake Superior Ski Club) and Bill Pierce (FAST) for giving us fast boards for the weekend. These guys know their way around and nailed the wax both days.
And of course a huge thanks to the Lund Family in Duluth. We stayed here for our training camp in Duluth last week and again tonight enroute to Thunder Bay. Thanks to Rob, Sara and Caroline for the great cooking and Minnesotan hospitality!
