Stage two of the Peru Nordic Tour de Ski featured the Evil has no Boundaries freestyle race at MitcHELLbeiner Skistadion in Morrisonville, NY. 

It was COLD!
It was COLD!

Skiers battled cold near-zero temperatures both with and without poles.  Racers took part in four mass-start races.  Chris Rose and Jim Kobak were given the same time during the first two no pole races, finishing just ahead of Steve Bailey.  Then in race three, Rose made a move and opened a sizeable gap on Kobak.  Kobak responded with a strong fourth lap but could not undo the damage from lap 3. 

Rose gave an inspired Favre-ish performance!
