Andre Marchand

Andre, aka Le marcheur de Masham, Dr. Dre, or Andreezy, to his teammates, is now in his third year with team XC Ottawa. Growing up at the north end of the Gatineau Park in Masham, QC, Andre has been skiing these hills since he could walk. Over the years Andre has discovered the love for speed on his skis and has become one of the fastest up and coming sprinters in Canada. Andre’s favorite event is obviously the skate sprint although he does hope to become a great all rounder. Some of Andre’s best results include coming 2nd in the CCUNC skate sprint at the 2012 nationals, 3rd at a Quebec Cup skate sprint in Orford, and being the top Canadian at the US ski Nationals skate sprint last year. Andre was also voted by the readers of Ski Trax Magazine as tied for the ‘Best Overall Collegiate Male Skier, 2012”.

A random fun fact about Andre is that he is a 2x National Race Walking Champion before joining XC Ottawa. Laugh all you want, but this boy can walk 10km faster than most of us can run it! Now a days, when Andre isn’t training or racing skiing, he enjoys learning to play the guitar and studying to be a Mechanical Engineer at Carleton University. Alongside many of his XCOttawa teammates Andre also dons the dark Raven spandex to race for Carleton University on the CCUNC circuit.

Andre is personally sponsored by Rossignol and Demsis.
