Four SVSEF cross country athletes have been selected to represent the U.S. in this year’s North American World Cup sprint competition, held in Quebec and Minneapolis, March 13-17. Kevin Bolger, Peter Holmes, and Katie Feldman, all members of the Gold Team, will compete. Sydney Palmer-Leger, a senior on the Comp Team, qualified but declined to attend.
Kevin qualified based on a number of top-30 performances in World Cup sprint events this season, while Peter, Katie, and Sydney qualified with a strong Nations Group of athletes based on top SuperTour results through this season.
“We’re really excited to have a number of athletes from SVSEF getting starts at these upcoming World Cups. It’s been a big goal for these athletes to qualify, so it’s awesome to see it come together for them. The atmosphere and crowds in Quebec are always amazing and there’s going to be even more energy in Minneapolis, as this will be the first World Cup race on U.S. soil in 20 years,” said Gold Team Head Coach Chris Mallory.
Following the Sprint Tour, Kevin and Johnny Hagenbuch will be starting Canmore World Cup Finals, March 20-22.
