GSOC Racer Blog

By David Lippucci—Race Director

Unfortunately, this is the last racer BLOG of the 2015-2016 CSC Race Series season.  I am proud of the GSOC team that focused hard to retain the cup but came in 6th out of 12 teams this weekend.  We will continue to focus more and more on developing our young racers and families and anyone else that wants to learn to race and have fun. 

For the sixth year in a row, the CSC decided to run all races in one day.  Two runs of GS in the morning, then two runs of Slalom in the early afternoon.  It takes great athletes to become fit enough physically and mentally to compete.

For GS, the 9:45 start offered overcast skies and temps in the high 20’s and no wind: Very nice conditions for both divisions with a narrow fast set.  Mostly grippy ice that gave everyone confidence carving turns.

Starting at 1:30 for Slalom, conditions stayed the same but softened just a bit.  The Division 2 course was set narrow and fast.  The division 1 course was as technical as possible:  A four gate flush, 3 hairpins and 60 gates overall.  Quite the work out and kind of like a World Cup set less flat terrain.

Prizes were given out for podium winners in GS and Slalom.  Trophy’s were given out for combined times for GS and Slalom in both divisions.

SPECIAL NOTES:  Jake Laroe won the Ralph Tate award with the fastest overall time for all runs this weekend at 172.27 seconds.  For this achievement, Jake won a pair of new Head skis.  The guy that came in second had 179.02 seconds.  In addition, Jake also won the Tom Broughton award for most points accumulated for a male during the regular season: 167 points.  For this achievement, Jake won airfare and a training package to Steamboat in December!
