The Hoff, as he’s known throughout the cross country ski community, had an abbreviated World Cup season in 2014-2015 due to an untimely crash and broken fibula at the Kuusamo World Cup in early November. Hoffman is known for a dogged temperament, and over the last seven seasons the U.S. Ski Team has seen him take the role of top distance racer in the country. Hoffman used that persistence to overcome his broken fibula and return to competition before 2015's World Championships in Falun. While he didn't win results, those races were impressive given his season, proving Hoffman a true contender on the World Cup circuit even after months away.
