Breckenridge/Ski Cooper/Aspen Highlands Recap

We kicked the weekend off at Breckenridge on January 27th with the annual Super-G sponsored by "A Racer's Edge" - thanks Chuck Ginsburg! It was a cold (never got much above single digits), sunny day with great snow and great courses. First race results here. Second race results here. Great to see Carl Swanson (M7) from Alaska Masters, Bruce Long (M5) from Australia Masters! Many had time for a few post-race free runs before we ended the day at the Maggie for awards, snacks, and drinks.
Saturday January 28th marked the 2nd Annual Hendo Classic at Ski Cooper. The long GS brought out the tech event specialists along with the unveiling of the the first Hendo Classic Trophy! Full race results here.
Thanks to Phil Armstrong and Aurum Food and Wine for sponsoring the event and to Matt Henderson for making the trophy! Great to see Jennifer Ishum (W3) with her first elite win and welcome to William Elsass (M5) - his first RMM race!
We wrapped up the long weekend with 3 days of SPEED at Aspen. Thanks to Scotty Nichols and the ASC crew for putting on a great race. Special thanks to Bill Tomcich for his continuing efforts to keep Masters racing on the schedule in Aspen.
