Kris Freeman Collects SuperTour Win

April 1, 2011

The US Ski Team reported that Kris Freeman (Waterville Valley Nordic athlete from Andover, NH) skied to the top spot in the 15k classic event at the USSA SuperTour Finals in Sun Valley.

Following a second in the 3.3k freestyle prologue, Freeman jumped to the top of the men’s tables on Wednesday, earning the 15k classic win and grabbing the overall lead from Simi Hamilton (Aspen, CO). The longer course played into Freeman’s hands perfectly, and the New Hampshire native took full advantage. Freeman beat out Canadians Drew Goldsack and Kevin Sandau by 13 and 17 seconds respectively.

Wednesday’s victories bode well for Freeman as the SuperTour Finals moved into its third stage, the men’s classic sprint. Freeman will gain a 15 second head start in addition to the margin of victory in his race for the 5k hill climb, the finale of the SuperTour Finals.
