Book Description: Here's a big "Let's ski!" sale on "the best XC ski read ever!" (Now only $9.95 -- almost half off the list price of $17.95.) Pete Vordenberg is the Head Coach of the US XC program. He's also a favorite writer in XC ski magazines. "Momentum" is a memoir of life as an Olympian as well as of being a kid taking his early steps toward such a goal. Bob Gregg, editor, Master Skier magazine, said it was the best XC ski book ever. The insights into life as a junior skier are particularly rewarding, as it's a time not often covered in sports writing. Vordenberg opens up the skiing life in a way we haven't seen before. He puts us inside the global goal of striving for near-impossible American gold in XC. "It is not a retelling of the little engine that could, but why the little engine even tried." In addition to being Head Coach, Vordenberg was a 2-time Olympian and National Champion. Recently, the US has been achieving worldclass results for the first time in decades! Includes dozens of black & white photos.
