2014-2015 GMNC NORDIC RACE SERIES

FINAL STANDINGS

The Grand Mesa Nordic Council 2014-2015 Race Series counted points for finishes in four races: the WinterStart Classic 5K, the Grand Mesa Classic 10K, the Skyway Skuffle Freestyle 10K and the Mesa Meltdown Freestyle 20K. The mix of distances and disciplines meant the winners needed to be excellent all-around skiers. That defines Helen Carlsen in a nutshell. She parlayed top-4 finishes in every race into an insurmountable lead to win the Series for women. Christie Aschwanden had 3 wins but missed a race. That opened the door for the consistent Carlsen to surpass her, leaving Christie in second. The men’s side of things ended in dramatic fashion. Young Addison Livingston had built a nice lead through 3 races but missed the finale. That again opened the door for others. Of the Mesa Meltdown racers that had a shot at Addison, Winslow Robertson was the closest. With a place of seventh or better, Winslow would overtake Addison but he came up just short in eighth so the prize went to the youth instead of the veteran. With the way he’s skiing now, we expect to see Addison near or on top of the heap for years to come. Congratulations to all who participated in this hard fought battle! All should consider themselves winners with a reward of fitness and memories of fun times at Skyway. Speaking of rewards, our two winners each took home a nice Flash pack from REI. Thanks REI for these and many other prizes. In addition the Series was supported by a generous group of sponsors that deserve your support in return.

Now rest up and get ready for the Grand Mesa Nordic Loppet on Saturday, March 28th!
