And Now for Something Slightly Different

... from my Randall-centric posts lately. Back in the States, Jessie Diggins is killing it on the SuperTour. After seven races at two venues, she's scored 200 points out of a possible 210. Not shabby:

  1.   classic sprint (West Yellowstone): 1st place/30 points
  2.   skate sprint  (West Yellowstone): 2nd/25 pts
  3.   10k skate (West Yellowstone): 2nd/25 pts
  4.   5k classic (West Yellowstone): 1st/30 pts
  5.   skate sprint (Bozeman): 1st/30 pts
  6.   5k skate (Bozeman): 1st/30 pts
  7.   10k classic (Bozeman): 1st/30 pts

I can't wait to see what she does abroad later this year.

I couldn't agree more. It has been exciting to see the success other young skiers like Slind, Lahteenmaki, and even Sadie Bjornsen have been having already this year, and I'm looking forward to seeing how Jessie stacks up against them when she gets over to Europe for world cups and U23 championships. As a Midwesterner it has been fun seeing CXC have such great success so far this year.
