Last night’s race pitted athletic prowess with finding your skis in all the fresh snow in the exchange area. A very dry snowfall helped the skate leg of the Skiathlon, with no complaints about elephant snot loading skis. Classic got a little tricky with the changing fresh snow in the tracks, though I didn’t hear of anyone having to run downhill.
Turnout was manageable this week, with only 30 racers attending, so we started fairly close to on-time. We had a good contingent of young racers again, warming their legs up before BC Champs in Kelowna this weekend. Eamon and Oliver did the short course, so their times are a bit faster than expected. Andrea was the pace-setter, but she skated both laps, so Reese wins the race as the fastest Skiathlete.
Well done all of you!Back to the Blog!
