This title is out of print
Marcus Nash and Scott B. Loomis are two young Maine cross-country skiers training for the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic Games as members of the United States Nordic team. From grueling training sessions in all parts of the world to prestigious European races, the two skiers recount the challenges of international competition. Their disappointments and triumphs are recalled from their journals, stories of life on the road, and on the snow as competitors in a sport that attracts little publicity and only limited support while training year-around.
