Of the nearly 500 entrants in this year’s Yellowstone Rendezvous Cross Country Race in West Yellowstone, Montana, 11 flew the distinct GAS/Intrinsik Nordic team kit. The course was fast and conditions were perfect, resulting in record times for the 50K skate, 25K classic and skate, and 10K skate races.

GAS/Intrinsik racers brought home several medals, including:

  • 1st in age category and 10th overall for Sam Krieg for the 50K stake, with a time of 2:09:19
  • 3rd in age category for Kevin Jacobson for the 50K skate, with a time of 2:20:12
  • 2nd in age category and 6th overall for Karen Appleby-Krieg for the women’s 25K, with a time of 1:17:46
  • 1st in age category and 7th overall for Amy Frykman for the women’s 25K, with a time of 1:18:12
  • 3rd in age category for Bill Cochran for the men’s 25K skate, with a time of 1:16: 11
  • 1st in age category and 2nd overall for Tasha Williams for the women’s 10K skate, with a time of 36:24.

Many GAS/Intrinsik racers stuck around for the evening award ceremony (and free dessert), which proved a great opportunity to connect with racers from around the region as Nordic season comes to a close.
