Charlie Dresen skiing the Sprint Classic race in Norway

Feeling my age. The Classic race is a traditional telemark race that has many elements. It’s a GS race but there were 2 raps, or sharp banked turns, one large jump, a long skating section at the bottom and GS gates down the long hill. This is a one run, give it all you got race. It lasted almost 3 minutes. It’s an exhausting race but this old guy held his own. I placed 16th today out of 77 racers.

Tomorrow we leave for another area that’s about a 8 hours trip via buses and trains.
