Alaska Nanooks Raphaela Sieber and Logan Hanneman swept the top podium positions in today's second stage of the mini-tour. 

The 8:40AM temperature at Birch Hill is -8.8F and holding fairly steady.  It looks like all races will start on schedule unless there is a major drop in temperature in the next couple of hours.  Start list is available at sportalaska.com - click on Ski Race Info.

Click on the "read more" button to see the times from the second town sprint race (times for 1.25Km course only).  Due to our "unconventional" race format, in order to get the times for you, we need to send the times to Ernie Page at Summit Timing Systems so that he can extract the information from the race file, then he sends it back and we then manipulate the data he extracted to make the results meaningful.

Unfortunately, the day after he sent the file back to us, my computer went belly-up, and I was not able to work on the results until I had gotten my computer back.  Hence the delay.
