The Sunday race was a skate event that featured an abundance of hills not seen in Southern Maine. The J2's skied 5k, the J1 women skied 10k, and the J1 men skied 15k. Despite challenges with the hills and the distance, the MCN skiers, across the board, put in a great effort resulting in great results. Adele finished fourth overall! She won the J1 class and finished just over a minute behind US Ski Team member Liz Stephen. In addition to winning her class, she also received an award as the top women Maine Skier in the Chummy Broomhall College Cup.
Again, all skiers put in a great effort. Eastern Cups can be vey intimidating for the club skiers competing against the ski academies. Despite the challenge, the MCN skiers rose to the occasion! The results posted on Sunday really show that club skiers can successfully compete against the best! For full results, go to http://www.chisholmskiclub.org/2008_eastern_cup.html
