This year we also had fellow Nordic Combined Olympians Jed Hinkley and Carl Van Loan, the proprieters of "Olympian Tours" bring several guests who rode with us and made some helpful donations to the National Nordic Foundation. Also supporting this effory was Fast Big Dog racing who through in some sicky kits and water bottles as well as Park City Cole Sport and Honey Stinger.
