A fine finish for Nelson Nordic X-Country Team

In early March, members of the Nelson Nordic X-Country Racing Team traveled to Revelstoke for the BC Midget Championships

In early March, members of the Nelson Nordic X-Country Racing Team traveled to Revelstoke for the BC Midget Championships (for ages 9-13). There was a total of 18 teams and nearly 300 racers from BC participating, so the racers were lucky to have such a big event close to home.

In the 2003 (birth year) girls 2.5 km classic race, Nelson’s Sabien Edney finished 12th. In the 2003 boys 2.5 km. classic race Dylan Gyr came in 8th. Nelson’s  Oliver McDougall-Eisele finished 15th overall in the 2001 boys 2.5 km classic race.

In the boys four by 1.5 km classic/free relay event Gyr and McDougall-Eisele, teamed up with skiers from Rossland and Sovereign Lakes to finish 3rd.

Sprint results in their respective age categories included: Gyr (8th), Edney (10th), McDougall-Eisele (11th) and Sophie Edney (28th). McDougall-Eisele got special mention for good technique by a panel of judges.

The Nelson team finished 12th overall — very respectable for having so few skiers participate.
