An East Coaster by birth, Tommy Biesemeyer knows what it's like to race on icy conditions. A product of the New York Ski Education Foundation, he started racing at Whiteface, but he quickly moved into to the U.S. Ski Team food chain, making his World Cup debut in 2011.

“BZ” was on track for a breakout 2014 season on the World Cup when a crash at the final downhill training run in Lake Louise on Nov. 29 resulted in a torn ACL and sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. Needless to say, he was sidelined for the entire Olympic season but took the opportunity to put in a couple of full semesters at the University of Vermont.

TOMMY SAYS
It’s definitely a bummer to miss the Olympic season completely, but I always try to look at things with a positive light. In this case–sure I blew my ACL, again–but it happened so early in the season that I won’t miss a single day of prep for the 2015 World Champs season.

FIRST TRACKS
Biesemeyer began skiing at three and had his first race at age seven, when he joined the famed New York Ski Education Foundation program at nearby Whiteface Mountain, the host of the 1980 Olympic Winter Games. At 12, Biesemeyer hit the road for J3 and J4 races, but always had his sights set on making the U.S. Ski Team. A victory at the '03 Junior Olympics started him down that path.

OFF THE SNOW
He's into living the Adirondack life in northern New York, which includes a mix of hiking, mountain biking, plundering local swimming holes and occasionally working for his dad's construction company – when he's home.
