Summit Nordic coaches go for glory at Adventure Racing World Champs
The Hedbergs are heading to Worlds.
Beginning tomorrow (Aug. 10), Olof Hedberg, head coach for Summit Nordic Ski Club, and his wife, Whitney, will spend six days (at least) traveling more than 450 miles on bike, foot and boat at the 2017 Adventure Racing World Championships in the wilds of Wyoming. A total of 59 teams from 17 countries are registered for the event, including 29 from the United States.
This marks the first year Olof and Whitney Hedberg have competed at Worlds — it also marks the first time in 16 years that Worlds have been hosted in the U.S. — but they’re hardly newcomers to adventure racing. They teamed up with another Nordic coach, Hannah Taylor, to win the Teton Ogre Adventure Race from June 24-25, which earned both of them invites to compete with high-level teams.
For Worlds, Olof Hedberg paired up with Team Adventure Medical Kits. Dubbed AMK, the team has held the North American title multiple times and is the favorite U.S. squad at Worlds. AMK enters the event ranked at No. 3 overall behind Seagate of New Zealand and Vidaraid of Spain. Whitney Hedberg is racing with Team NV Journey.
