15 members of the World’s Most Notorious Nordic Ski Team took part in the annual race on the home snows of Mount Van Hoevenberg. Peru Nordic earned 10 medals, 6 Gold and 4 Silver, but none was more sweet than the Gold earned by the Enigma of Uncertainty, Stan Hatch

 Stan flat out won the 50 K Classic race, becoming the first Peru Nordic Member to ever become world champion of the 50 k classic Loppet.  Not only did Stan ski incredibly fast, but he impressed the race jury with his Dale of Norway sweater.  “…We haven’t seen anyone race that fast in wool around here scince Sixten Jernberg won the HPC: Nordic Specialists Sunday Series Wood and Wool Classic back in 1902.”

In addition to Stan’s heroic feat, many Peruvians put in impressive showings, although the team totally sucked at the banquet raffle.
