Many thanks to Chris Fast for picking up the results last week while I was busy exploring the backwoods of northern Wisconsin between Cable and Hayward with 7,000 new friends. Here is his report on the conditions:
Conditions were very firm and a bit icy, so very fast skating, provided you could stay out of the center classic grooves left over from Sunday's race that had not been completely groomed under. I managed to crash twice in the downhill straight section between the road and the Berk-Viking fork (i.e., the easiest part of the course).
Next week: classic. Good luck to everyone heading to the Swedish Vasaloppet!
