Senior members of the Revelstoke Nordic Racing Team look on as younger Jack Rabbit skiers wait for their start at a time trial this weekend at the Mount Macpherson Ski Trails.

Nordic time trials provide valuable warm up for upcoming Midget Championships

Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club hosted time trials on Saturday to test timing system in advance of Teck Midget Championships in March.

By Sarah Newton, Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club

On Saturday, Dec. 29, the Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club held a test race to prepare volunteers and the timing system for the March 2-3 Teck Midget Championships, which will see provincial champions crowned in the 9- 12-year-old age groups.

The club has already been preparing for the championships and this dry run showed the club where more volunteers are needed and where some streamlining of procedures can occur. About 220 athletes and their families will converge on Revelstoke for the weekend of events. Races will be classic race, sprint race and a relay.

After today’s practice race, Revelstoke Nordic Coach Matt Smider commented: “The coolest thing about today’s race was the fact that Revelstoke athletes of all ages competed together and showed great sportsmanship towards each other. This club has tremendous team spirit and it was wonderful seeing them gel together at the event.”

Results from the time trials can be found at www.zone4.ca.

Penny Page-Brittin, volunteer coordinator, is looking for more volunteers; please email her at brittins@telus.net if you can help. The club is looking for assistance in many areas of the race; you don’t even need to know how to ski to be a big help for this championship event.

As well, please note that there will be no parking whatsoever at the Nordic Ski Club on the weekend of March 2/3. There will be a shuttle from the Big Eddy on those days. For more information please go to www.revelstokenordic.com.
