Skiing - Classic race 4:21:25  54.0 km (4:50 / km)
Birkie went better than I thought. Grooming was great, solid tracks, fast downhills (for the first half anyway) and was able to kick up the hills. My wax technician was right on which seemed to be key. People wither were kicking up the hills or struggling on any incline.
It was a great day: no wipe outs, saw Jasper working at the OO food station, beat my goal time by 9 minutes, and no frostbite.
