Twenty Revelstoke athletes held their own in the field of over 200 skiers at the second BC Cup race at the Telemark Nordic Ski Club in Kelowna last weekend.

Topping the podium was Megan Evans, who won gold in the sprints on Saturday and the longer skate skiing time trail on Sunday.  Evans dominated the women’s field and beat most boys in her age group.

Alana Brittin skied well in the frigid temperatures and placed third in the classic time trial. Nelson Luxmoore finished second in the sprints and fourth in the time trial.  Jaclyn Elliot skied to a strong fourth place in the time trial and a silver in the sprint. Other top five finishes included Simon Blackie in the skate and classic events.

Brittin and Blackie, along with Elliott and Luxmoore will be among the athletes to watch as they gun for the podium on March 2-3 when Revelstoke hosts the Teck BC Midget Nordic Provincial Ski Championships.
