Grand Mesa Classic Results 2012


GRAND MESA CLASSIC RESULTS

1/29/2012

SKYWAY

We love it when the college teams come to Grand Mesa for a weekend of ski
racing because for three seasons now they have brought great weather with
them. This year may have been the best! The snow was cold and kind of slow
for the Saturday sprint races but the sunshine felt great. It helped warm
things up a notch for Sunday’s 10K classic race. No wind, warm sun and beautiful
firm tracks added up to great enjoyment competing on Sunday. Skiers from Colorado
Mesa University, University of Wyoming, US Air Force Academy and Western State
College comprised half of the field with the rest filled out by our regular
enthusiastic contingent of citizen racers from around the region.

Chris Lange of Western State showed he’s lost nothing of his classic skills
as he repeated as the 10K champ from last year. Likewise, Brooke Bosman of
Colorado Mesa repeated as the women’s champ but this year she really had to
work for it. She won with over a 4 minute gap last year whereas this year
Sierra Jech of Wyoming was only 18 seconds back and citizen Christie Aschwanden
and UW skier Bridget Weiner finished within the next minute. The men’s side
was very competitive also with the top five finishing within a minute of each
other. Lange was followed closely by Wyoming racer Kyle Bochanski and Air
Force’s Stefan Zavislan. Terray Sylvester in 10th place overall was the fastest
citizen of the day.

Once again our volunteers showed great stamina keeping everything happening
and running smoothly. A huge thanks to Shirley and Bill Ela, Shannon Raborn,
groomer extraordinaire and timing helper Doug Conant, Anita Evans, Danielle
Burritt and our steller parking crew of Winslow Robertson and Chuck Bodie!
