USTSA Telemark Nationals Recap

Bishop Badassador, Sarah Carley recaps the USTSA Telemark Nationals at Crotched Mountain, NH earlier this month

The first day, Thursday was a training day. Friday we started off with two classics, I opened up on the podium in third and then fourth for the second race. Saturday was a two run sprint classic -- after the first run I was in third and for the second run I jumped big, fell, and ended up in fifth.

Sunday was a long day, I ran two qualifying runs in the morning and qualified for the parallel in second place. Having the upper hand through most of the bracket, I won my race in the bracket of 8, and then had a narrow and very contentious win in the bracket of 4 -- making it to the finals.

I raced in the final and ended up falling on the jump (go big or go home!), but I knew I just needed a finish to end up in second for the day, so I hiked and skied the rest. So overall I had a second, third, fourth and fifth place finish -- and taking my best two results to calculate National Champion, I ended up third overall by a narrow margin in either direction. 

Congrats to Sarah for a strong finish in New Hampshire! And to Bishop supporter and athlete, Lucy Sackbauer for picking up a big win at the Big Mountain Tele Fest in Targhee the same weekend. GO Team Bishop!
