Blue Sky, sunshine and 24 degrees greeted skiers at the 20km Black Mountain Freestyle Race on Saturday March 3rd.  The four laps of the 5 km loop prepared by Denny Paull and the Black Mountain Ski Club was, as one skier described it, a World Class Course. 

Andy Liebner won the overall in a blistering time of 55:18, stopping to change to a different set of his USSPC ski poles along the way!  Ryan Harris, the defending champion in this event, finished 2nd in 58:35, Jordan Wakely was 3rd in 59:14 followed closely by Steven Smiegel 59: 52 rounding out the sub-one hour skiers. 

In the women’s race, Daniela Gephardt skied the 2 laps in 35:15 to take the overall victory followed by Brenda Carlson-Brown 38:19 and Gussie Peterson 41:28 in 3rd to complete the podium .

Post race, it was Doug Cornell (19th) rockin' with Don Camp (12th) and Robin Luce (20th)!
