Alysson Marshall continued her strong start to the season after a SuperTour sprint victory in West Yellowstone and a fifth place finish in Bozeman, Montana with two gold medals at the NorAm opening races near Rossland hosted by the Black Jack Ski Club last weekend.

The conditions were hard, fast and technical for both events.

There were many spills, broken poles and close calls.

The sprints were cancelled the first day and rescheduled as a classic 7.5 kilometre event. Marshall took the gold with a time of 21:07  with a 12.2 second lead over the second-place finisher.

On Sunday the event was changed at the last minute from a 10 km to a 11.25 km event on a different course due to treacherous conditions. Wearing the leader bib, Marshall powered her way to a win in 32 minutes with a 21.5 second lead over second place in a field of 42.
