Keski Report #6 - My Keski Hero!
By:  Ron Lorenson   (2007/02/23)


My Keski story is about my Keski hero.

The Tuesday before the Keski I was skiing around Asticou and met this gentleman who asked if I was going to do the Keski. He mentioned that he was using Swix polar for the first time and what did I think of it. Detecting a very definite ‘Strine accent I asked him where he was from - he replied that he was from Australia and was going to do both 53's. I had to admit that I was going to be satisfied with an insufficient 28 free-style.

While we were whining about a ridiculous January and were scouring the park for something that we could use for on-snow training, he was training on asphalt in +35-40°C temperatures.

He is Peter John Brennan from Cooma Australia in the 55-59 age group. His stats are:

Saturday classic - 5:10:04

Sunday free-style - 4:15:56

He’s my Keski hero and is an eloquent statement of what the Keski is about and why it’s such a great event.
