Kikkan Randall (Anchorage) led another historic day for the U.S. Cross Country Ski Team, finishing second in a 5k freestyle race at the Ruka Triple mini-tour in Kuusamo. It was Randall's second straight distance podium and a career best for a non-sprint.
U.S. Ski Team cross country racer Ida Sargent (Orleans, VT) scored a career best Friday, powering to a ninth place finish in the opening classic sprint at the Ruka Triple mini tour World Cup at Kuusamo in northern Finland.
