Mora (Minnesota) Vasaloppet 2016

Postby bmullin » Thu Feb 11, 2016 10:10 am

I'm signed up for my first one this year. Well, actually I was signed up last year too, but bailed when it was going to be a super short lake only race. After numerous races at Elm Creek last year I couldn't swallow another short lap race.

I'm doing the 35k now, 30k skate race. I'm actually pretty excited about the course they are putting together this year. Those trails through the nordic center, plus some loops on some ponds, plus some drag racing on the lake, and the downtown start and finish should make for some fun racing.

Temps are forecasted to be COLD, but thankfully currently calling for minimal to no wind.

Anyone else racing this weekend?

Nice!
How hard was it to sign-up? According to the Vasaloppt website, they still have slots open, even for the main race.
OTOH I've read somewhere that it's next to impossible to sign up for the main event unless you do it far in advance.
How many days are you staying in Sweden (jet lag?)

I had a great time at Mora Saturday. Other than being a bit dirty in places the course was great and the racing fun.

Placing wise it was my best race ever as a citizen races and I came away with one of the cool Dala Horse age group awards.
