Eastern REG: June 25-30, Craftsbury, VT
The Eastern REG is currently being hosted by the Craftsbury Outdoor Center in Vermont, a mecca for both Nordic skiing and rowing. This is a higher caliber group than what we’ve seen from this region in the past. The majority of the group is fantastic on their roller skis. It is a Nordic-educated group. Athletes are coming from many different clubs that have been stepping up their game, developing complete athletes, professional athletes before they become professionals. This is ready to explode. And none of these improvements have been accidental or lucky.
