Missoula Nordic Ski Club Community,
This year, the US has the best nordic olympic team in history. Join us this Saturday at 4pm at Big Sky Brewing to watch team USA go after medals in the first Nordic ski race of the 2018 Olympics, the women’s 15k Skiathlon! This is a head-to-head, mass start event where the athletes ski 7.5km in classic technique and then change their skis and poles mid-race and ski another 7.5km skate. It should be a fun race to watch with a chance for a US podium finish!
We expect the race to last about 40 min and the viewing to last around 1 hr (you’re welcome to stay longer). We’ll provide some snacks to share (feel free to bring more) and hope you’ll join us! (Note that the race is actually occurring at 12:15am our time, so we’ll be watching it on tape delay—If you end up learning the results before the showing, please don’t spill the beans for those who want to be held in suspense.)
Hope to see you there!
Organized by Hannah Specht and Henry Reich
