2006 Keski Climb and Canadian Rollerski Championships Update #2
By:  Team XCOttawa   (2006/09/28)

The pavement along Cite des Jeunes has been torn up between Therien Blvd and the Centre Asticou. The city is working on the road surface and it's currently all gravel - not suitable for rollerskiing - and will not be repaved before race time.

For that reason the organizers of Keski Climb have moved the start of the rollerski race, but not the other events, to Gamelin Blvd near P3. You must still pick-up your race kit at the Relais Pleine Aire, and there will be a bus provided to take skiers to the start area.

The prologue course will be on Blvd de la Technologie. You should be aware that the pavement is fairly rough with lots of cracks, manhole covers and other obstacles to avoid. It could be interesting at night, especially if it's raining.

Interesting Reading. . .
