Pete Vordenberg is the retired Head Coach of the US XC program. He has also been a favorite writer in XC ski magazines. "Momentum" is a memoir of life as an Olympian as well as of being a kid taking his early steps toward such a goal. Bob Gregg, editor, Master Skier magazine, said it was the best XC ski book ever.

The insights into life as a junior skier are particularly rewarding, as it's a time not often covered in sports writing. Vordenberg opens up the skiing life in a way we haven't seen before. He puts us inside the global goal of 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. Recently, the US has been achieving world-class results for the first time in decades!
