Peru Nordic’s Jim Kobak narrowly won the 2010 Superbowl of Skiing by keeping close to Jon Santor in the Dewey Mt. Freestyle race. Kobak’s Loppet time was just a hair faster than Santor, even with the classic handicap. And Santor was better at picking the final score for the Big Game. However, by digging deep and keeping within 10 seconds of Santor on the final day of racing, Kobak squeaked out the victory.
