Spotlight: Loppet Nordic Racing Summer Juniors
June 29, 2016
Loppet Nordic Racing (LNR) is one of the largest programs in the country. We caught up with them Wednesday morning in south Minneapolis. The group did a overdistance rollerski, splitting into a number of small groups with coaches to pair up skiers with similar abilities. Most of the advanced and immediate girls headed east, crossing the Mississippi River and skiing to downtown St. Paul, lead by Olympian Caitlin Gregg and head coach Piotr Bednarski. Most of the groups finished the 2-3 hour workout with some running and short drills.
