Announcing Team 2007!
By:  Team XCOttawa   (2006/05/06)


XC Ottawa is pleased to announce Team 2006-2007!! We are extremely fortunate to continue to be coached by John Suuronen for the coming season, and we are even more fortunate to have secured some on-going support for all the work he does. Our technical support crew will be the extremely able team of Steve Bursey and Alicia Berthiaume.

This year's team includes Aussie National Team member Andrew Wynd, former Olympian and multiple Canadian champion Wayne Dustin, Carleton University athlete-of-the-year finalist Ed McCarthy, tree-planter extraordinaire Gavin Hamilton (our Most Improved Skier last year), 2005-06 World Cup competitor Karl Saidla, and many other accomplished and celebrated athletes; the list goes on and on.

We are rested and re-charged from a month of April spring skiing and relaxing, and revving up again for another season. We hope to continue to be involved with the Ottawa-Gatineau ski community this year, so stay tuned on the site for announcements of many exciting ski events. Several of us are getting a kick-start on the season with a short training camp in Foret Montmorency this weekend (that's right, THIS weekend), which apparently still has three feet of snow. If this is in fact true, you will see pictures next week.

Here's the team:

  • Pierre-Olivier Dorego
  • Wayne Dustin
  • Gavin Hamilton
  • Sheila Kealey
  • Ed McCarthy
  • Tom McCarthy
  • Megan McTavish
  • Karl Saidla
  • Craig Storey
  • Andrew Wynd
  • Coach: John Suuronen
  • Technical Support: Steve Bursey
  • Technical Support: Alicia Berthiaume
