It was another fantastic night of skiing and heavy breathing at Ashton tonight! We ran the loop counter clockwise and look what happened. Jeff Barnes, a.k.a. the Rock Lobster, tore up our midwestern tundra Canadian skate ski style in a cool 19:06! Brian Eppen again led the classic charge with a combination of brute facial hair and
gratuitous double poling, stopping the clock in 20:38! Kim Eppen put the screws to the Women's Classic field once more, taking the win with a time of 23:36, which garnered her second place overall in the classic field. Cara continued her domination in the Women's Skate with another graceful glide home in 27:08. And Chad Lambi defended his Stone Ski award, but still shaved minutes off his time at 44:19.
Three more people than last week and there were some really close finish times, so close we are going to do the next race as a mass start so we can get some sprint finishes!
