Can I see a re-broadcast of this race somewhere? It would make for some nicely inspiring stuff for the Georgian Nordic team to watch at their spring training camp...

How old is the Richie guy from Georgian?

And is Skeets Morel's family still involved with the club? Skeets skied first leg when I won my relay OUAA medal for Carleton.

Think Graham Ritchie is only 21-22, got a bunch of years left if he chooses to continue...

Skeets Morel's family isn't actively involved in the club at this point, but I do run into his relatives every so often. He's the first Georgian Nordic skier to do a World Cup (with Graham being the second). I imagine Skeets was super speedy in university. Just saw his pic on the PS high school wall the other day from his athlete-of-the-year award back in the day...

Awesome performance by "Canadja"
Man those US team suits are ugly as F.

Ritchie is only 21 (22 in fall) and apparently didn't start skiing competitively until grade 11.

US Nordic is famous for ugly suits. The 90s were especially bad.
