Cook County Invite on the Web

Posted by David Kask at Jan 31, 2012 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )
The Cook County Invite will have live video streaming as well as radio coverage of the classic portion of the pursuit. Its easy to do: just go to and click on the live video link. Please pass this info along to your athletes' families and fans. Pincushion is in good shape, especially away from the stadium. We are altering the courses slightly to bring skiers back through the stadium on the lap and have a new finish that is slightly uphill instead of the too fast downhill finish. This will make for great spectator viewing. See you Friday.
