Myrda, Nadler Shine at Bear Chase
Jan Myrda of Palos Heights took sixth place overall at the Great Bear Chase 50K freestyle on Sunday with a 2:17:13.2. The race was won by Joshua Tesch of Superior, WI (he once won the NIN for anyone with a good memory!) in 2:14:37.4. Meanwhile, in the 26K freestyle, Andrew Nadler, the "kid" from Chicago, had another strong race, placing second overall in 1:17:59.4. The race was won by Christophe Nichols of Wausau, WI, in 1:14:26.1. There were a lot of Illinois skiers in the Great Bear Chase, held each year on the Swedetown Trails near Calumet, MI. Full results are at skinnyski.com. There will be some NINers skiing this week at ABR's finale as well. Great job to all, starting with Jan M. and Andrew N.
