This weekend is the US Classic Champs at Moreau Lake State Park, New York. The terrain is glacial and fantastic and the weather has held up, despite early predictions of rain.
The Classic Champs is a two-day combined time event, so the winner will not be determined until tomorrow. Leading the women after the first day is Samantha Saeger, who ran the 6.8km in about 62 minutes, with Ali Crocker just 2.5 minutes back. The men's course was dominated by Ross Smith, who ran the 9.6km course in just under 69 minutes. Sergei Zhyk was just over 3 minutes behind.
