What a Race!
The WAR ENSEMBLE NEW YEAR’S ROCKIN’ EVE BALL DROP HORRORSCOPE Race turned the Tour de Ski on its head. Baby New Year handed out many time bonuses that moved and shook the TdS standing.
Chris “Hand of Doom” Rose went off the front while Stan “Enigma of Uncertainty” Hatch dueled with Jim “Harvester of Sorrow” Kobak around the War Ensemble Course. Rose coasted to the fastest ski time, and Kobak edged Hatch in a sprint for silver. But when the Ball Dropped, it dropped HARD! Stan received 5 minutes of New Year’s Resolution Bonus time and catapulted to the victory!
