Default Hoffman Breaks Ski, Still Leads

Noah Hoffman (Aspen, CO) led the U.S. in the men's 20K freestyle technique mass start at the FIS Nordic Junior World Championships finishing 23rd despite breaking a ski at the start. Ida Sargent (Orleans, VT) led the U.S. women in 36th in the 10K.

German Phillip Marschall won the men's race with Therese Johaug of Norway taking the women's title for her second straight gold.

It was a tough break for Hoffman, an Aspen native who skis for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation. He broke a ski at the start and had to wait for the pack to hit the trail before picking up a replacement. He had moved all the way up to sixth after 11K's, but lost steam and dropped back.

Hoffman had been 12th in the classic technique event two days earlier. Freestyle is his better event and he had high expectations before breaking the ski in the mass start. It is legal to replace a broken ski during a race.

World Juniors wrap-up in the Bolzano region of Italy Friday with relays.

Default Stephen Third in Championships

MALLES, Italy (Feb. 28) The U.S. Ski Team's Liz Stephen (East Montpelier, VT/Burke Mountain Academy) made history Thursday, taking bronze in the women's 15K mass start in the Under-23 Cross Country World Championships in Italy as three Americans finished in the top 11. It was the second straight year U.S. women have medaled at the Championships.

Stephen, a student at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, added another notch to her podium status, landing in one of three coveted spots six times already this season at competitions including U.S. SuperTour races, Canadian NorAms and a silver medal at the U.S. Cross Country Championships in January.

"I am speechless, because I would not have believed that we could finish on the podium in the race today. Finally, the United States has won a medal and that makes us happy and satisfied with these races, " Stephens said.

"This is huge for us," said U.S. Nordic Director Luke Bodensteiner. "Not long ago distance events and women's results were glaring weaknesses. Last year Laura Valaas took silver at U23 in the sprint and now Liz has taken bronze in a distance race."

Taz Mannix (Talkeetna, AK/U.S. Ski Team/APU Nordic) followed Stephen in eighth and Morgan Arritola (Fairfield, ID/U.S. Ski Team/Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation) was 11th. Russian Olga Tiagai won the women's race followed by Silia Tarvonen of Finland in second.

In the men's 30K, Mike Sinnott (Sun Valley, ID/ Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation/The Factory Team/Dartmouth College) led U.S. athletes in 30th. Switzerland's Dario Cologna won the men's race followed by Russian Ilia Chernousov in second and Maurice Manificat of France in third.
