Yesterday on the Ides of March, the competitions kicked off here at Corner Brook Nationals 2014. XCOttawa entered two women's teams (Sheila/Ingrid) and (Liza/Katie) into the open women category and Kyla/Holly raced in the CCUNC category. The race of the day was that of Andre/Steffan in the CCUNC men's competition where they WON A BRONZE MEDAL!!! Another shout out goes to Chelsea Nordiq's Challenge Boys team who won their category and are bringing a National Championship Gold back home to Chelsea!

Today was the individual classic race and Blow Me Down cross country club really lived up to their name! In the span of just a few hours there was a white out blizzard, sunshine, torrential rain, hail and gail force winds. Waxing was an adventure to say the least. XCOttawa raced strong, and although at some places it may have felt like they were being blown backwards, everyone put in great efforts and gained some valuable experience.
