By: Lee Hawkings (2012/01/20)
Lee had another great race today leading XC Ottawa to a 19th place finish overall. Karl had another solid day to finish in 34th overall. Matthias and Peter were neck and neck separated by only 8 seconds and also just behind Karl in 38th and 41st respectively. Logan had a strong showing finishing 60th and was followed by Kyle in 68th and Andre in 77th.
On the Women’s side Megan burned up the field coming a solid
22nd overall. Sheila closely followed up Megan with a 27th
place finish. Vesta and Kyla had strong races as well finishing seconds apart
in 36th and 38th overall. Ingrid was right behind them in
42nd, Anna had a strong showing in 59th and Katie skied to a 64th.
Overall it was a great race for XC Ottawa and a great
weekend of racing put on at Whistler Olympic Park. Thanks so much to the
organizers for putting on great races in sometimes unfavorable conditions.
Also a HUGE thanks to our Coach and Head Wax Technician John
Suuronen for nailing the skis everyday and to his legion of wax helpers
(Justin, Tom, Ed, Eamonn and Chad) who made testing and application of wax on
race days that much better. You guys rock!
Here are some great pictures from race day. Man do we look good in our Podiumwear suits.Photo Credit: Grant Abbott.
