Simi Hamilton (Aspen, CO) led qualifying and powered his way through the heats for an historic win, taking a World Cup stage victory in the Tour de Ski at Lenzerheide. It was the first win ever by an American man in the grueling Tour. Hamilton’s victory was the first for U.S. men on the World Cup tour in nearly 30 years. In a strong day for the U.S. Ski Team, Sophie Caldwell (Peru, VT) made her first finals, finishing sixth with Andy Newell (Shaftsbury, VT) eighth. The Tour continues New Year’s Day with distance racing in Lenzerheide.
