Sunday - Sprint Preview Day

Yesterday the New England team spent the day testing skis, previewing the sprint course, and getting individualized pre-race workouts in.  As you can see from the photos, it was another gorgeous day - clear blue skies and temps in the upper 30s/low 40s.   The J2s started off the morning with a team jog (above) before breakfast (below).

 That's teamwork!  Katharine helps Zoe scrape a pair of skis when all the benches are full.

That's all for now - off for the sprints, we'll post pictures and results later today.  Live results should be available on Summit Timing.
