Momentum: Chasing the Olympic Dream

Pete Vordenberg is a favorite writer in XC ski magazines. He's also the Head Coach of the US XC program. This book is considered to be the best view of XC ski racing culture ever. It's a memoir of life as an Olympian as well as of being a kid taking the earlier steps toward such a goal. The insights into life as a junior skier are particularly rewarding, as it's a time not often covered in sports writing. Across the board, Vordenberg opens up skiing to the whole of life in a way we haven't seen before. He puts us inside the global world of a life spent 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. He "co-won" the 2003 USSA International Coach of the Year Award. Not coincidentally, the US has been achieving worldclass results for the first time in decades! Includes dozens of black & white photos.
