Carter Ski Center - The Beavers hosted their first ever Nordic invitational at Carter Ski center in Bethel, Maine. Though the waxing conditions were not ideal, dealing with damp and wet weather, there was a good turn out for this weekend's races. USCSA teams UVM, Cornell, Sterling, USMA and Wellesley all came out to race with UMF.
Kicking off the weekend's events was a classic sprint. UMF's Jordan Fried manage to get a spot in the semi-finals, coming in 5th overall. While Emily Thibodeau secured a top 20 finish, with a 13th place.
For racing day two, racers were asked to complete four laps of a hilly and challenging course. Coming in first for the UMF women, Leah hardy, with a time of 1:18. And for the UMF men, Jordan Fried finished in 8th place among a challenging field with a time of 51:52.
Come and support the Nordic Beavers as they stay local next weekend, with a Saturday race at Titcomb Mountain.
