Last weekend, Riley and Spencer jumped into the Sugarloaf 25k. In spite of the ridiculously warm weather throughout New England these past few weeks, the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center has held onto its snow remarkably well. At the gun, Spencer and Riley quickly formed a 3-man lead pack with Jordan Buetow of Bates. Riley led for the first several kilometers before falling back, leaving Spencer and Jordan to ski together until the finish. Spencer was able to hold off Jordan in a sprint finish, winning by a mere tenth of a second. Jordan is one of EISA's top skaters, as well as one of the best sprinters, so this was an impressive win for Spencer. Riley cruised in for a solid 4th place finish - a good showing for both Eusdens.
