Race Report: Schrama Busts Loose

It was another good day for the Callaghan Valley Training Centre in Silver Star.  In the junior category, CVTC qualified all four athletes in the top 30 and sent Colin Foley right through to the A-final to finish 5th.  In the open category, the CVTC qualified two athletes, with the top finish going to Martin Schrama in 9th place.

Race Report: Sovereign Lake Freestyle

It was a cold day at the races that didn't slow down the CVTC team at all.  With the thermometer hoovering at legal (-18.1) the 15km freestyle event was a go. 

Racing on the same courses that World Cup athletes races on in 2005 the race was no small challenge.  Geoffrey Richards lead the team and put in his best result so far this season with a 16th place overall finish.  Not far behind was Sebastian Dandurand in 22nd.  Colin Foley rounded out the CVTC top-3 with a 26th place finish, good enough for 4th place in the junior category.

The second day of the Alberta Cup was built for the upper body.  Doing 3 laps of a flat classic technique course for a total distance of 11.25 km, the CVTC guys found their arm and back muscles mangled and sore at the finish.  The field was again peppered with top athletes, including Paralympian, Brian McKeever who won the day on skate skis.

Strong Start to the Season for CVTC

The name of the event belies the calibre of the racers: disguised as a provincial-level Alberta Cup, the racers included national team members and many a former Olympian, and might as well have been a NorAm or Canada Cup.  In the first race of the weekend, a skate sprint event, the CVTC team started hard and fast and showed on the results list the postive attitudes that have been apparent throughout the autumn training block.
