2012 USASA Race Results Update

So far this winter Haleakala Racing (see Athlete Bio Page for more info here) and the Mountain Athlete have traveled to 2 competitions.  The first was at Whitetail Resort near Mercersburg, PA (1-21/22 USASA Appalachian Region) and the second at Holiday Valley, NY (1-29 USASA Western NY Region).    Besides the normal excitement that brews before a competition trip, we had to contend with the fact that Mother Nature potentially was going to interfere with both events  - and not in a good way.  The spring-like temps and weekly rain showers put adequate snow conditions seriously in doubt.  Luckily both facilities were able to build courses and host the competitions each weekend.
Silver for the Men, Gold for the Ladies

Gold @ Whitetail 
There were 2 SBX races at each resort and Ale scored gold in all the events (4 Gold Medal total).  Coach Jb earned a Silver and 3 Gold Medals for his efforts.  Not a bad start to the season, especially considering the limited training/practice time due to the lack of snow in our region.

We’ve got one more race at Snow Trails (Mansfield, Ohio) on 2-12 before Nationals in April 
(@ Copper Mountain, CO).  Hopefully there will be snow…and more Gold Medals.
2 Golds are better than one
