BIOGRAPHY
Brian Gregg was an All-American cross country skier at the University of Alaska, and he followed up his collegiate success with strong results at the U.S. Championships and the U.S. SuperTour. So far he has 20 U.S. SuperTour podiums with five wins. He also has ten World Cup starts and six NorAm top tens. After barely missing the cut for the 2011 and 2013 World Championship teams, Gregg is headed to Sochi after taking second in the 30k freestyle race at U.S. Championships. 

FIRST TRACKS
Brian Gregg and his twin brother learned how to ski on a single pair of cross country skis. He received great instruction in the Methow Valley in Washington from Laura McCabe and from other great mentors. Gregg took an Outward Bound course at age 15 and wrote down a list of life goals, including climbing Denali and going to the Olympics. Gregg and his wife, 2010 Olympian Caitlin Gregg, are both professional cross country skiers. They currently live in Wisconsin to train and race for CXC ski club. Gregg also works with the Lac Courte Orielles Boys and Girls Club on the Ojibwe reservation to mentor youth. He enjoys canoing on the Namekogan River, spending time in the sprint with family in the Cascades, and playing pick-up basketball or soccer.
