“I was very happy with how I executed my race today,” Burke said. “I was able to stick to my plan from start to finish, so I have to be happy with the result. I am definitely not in top ski form yet, but I’m hoping to save that for February. Now I am looking forward to what will surely be an exciting pursuit tomorrow.”
