Paddy’s Post PyeongChang Update

Thank you PyeongChang!

Earlier this week we flew from Seoul to Helsinki after the conclusion of the Olympics in PyeongChang — for those who missed the Closing Ceremonies at the Olympics last week our very own Jessie Diggins carried the American flag for Team USA. After our three weeks in Korea it is exciting to be back on the road and racing in Europe. It was an amazing experience being part of Team USA and being present for the historic performances from our cross-country team at the Championships. I was constantly amazed with how well organized the entire event was. Not only were there countless volunteers but each and every one greeted you with a huge smile and wave.

Now we are gearing up for the final three World Cup weekends starting with races in Lahti, Finland. The high temperature since we arrived hasn’t reached double digits yet but the snow is still fast and the skiing is perfect! Following the races here in Lahti we race in Oslo, Norway and Falun, Sweden to wrap up the World Cup season.
