On this edition of the SederSkier Podcast, Loppet Foundation Executive Director John Munger joins to talk about the FIS World Cup event which was supposed to be held in Minneapolis this March. It would have been the first World Cup event on US soil since 2001. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the event was cancelled on March 12th, just a few days before the start of the festivities. The SederSkier podcast did some investigative work on behalf of the nordic ski community to find the current status of the long awaited event. Was all of the energy, excitement, and effort for nothing? Is there hope for an event in the near future? Find out by listening to today’s show, complete with a special show intro dedicated to our home-state, Minnesota.

I'm a 27 year old elementary music teacher who lives in Alamosa, Colorado with my wife, Christie, and two dogs, Zatopek and Joanie. I enjoy watching the Minnesota Vikings, Timberwolves, and Twins, listening to sports talk radio, creating my own podcasts and rap songs in my studio, writing for news publications, downhill skiing, studying exercise science, cooking healthy food, eating all kinds of food, coaching, and much more. I also train as a full-time distance runner, which means I run, bike, ski, rollerski, and just generally workout, sleep, or eat all the time. View all posts by rsederquist
