Friday’s training went very well, on the sometimes challenging course in Ruka, tomorrow is when it counts. Our biggest hurdles will come from Canada and Russia.  Kearney, (Eliza) Outtrim, (Patrick) Deneen and (Jeremy) Cota are skiing excellent.

A Maine native, Jeremy Cota's laid-back style may be what will take him all the way. Cota already had some impressive wins under his belt coming onto the U.S. Ski Team in the 2010 season. The 2009 NorAm champion has had some great experience with winning, and he flawlessly carried that experience into his World Cup rookie season.
