Rooted in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, Ida Sargent claims a maple syrup manufacturer as a sponsor and trains in the summer amongst the endless trails of the Craftsbury Nordic Ski Center. Sargent also can boast a Vermonter’s native ease on skis—the 27-year-old Dartmouth graduate is a consistent World Cup point scorer and a constant contributor to the very strong women’s team. Her top finish came in the opening World Cup of the 2014-15 season with a fifth-place result at the Ruka, Finland classic sprint. An untimely fall and a concussion kept Sargent out of the World Championships, but she recovered to race the final World Cup event of the year. The absence on the biggest stage of cross country ski racing is sure to provide motivation for a strong return in 2015 – 2016.
