Teck Okanagan Cup Fun

The Training Centre made a quick trip to Kamloops for the Teck Okanagan Cup on Saturday, February 16.  Similar to the BC Cup in Kelowna, this event is critical for the Centre to build a network of support in BC by providing motivation to the young junior skiers (and some masters) and also for the athletes to learn more about the great province they've chosen to train in.

Yannick's Favourite Place to Ski

As competitive nordic skiers we travel to many different locations every year to race and train. These locations tend to be considered the nicest places in Canada, and they very well may be. But choosing one of these venues as a favorite is hard since most of the time we never get a chance to explore outside the “race course”. Many of us have have different ideas of the best place to ski and that is completely normal since some live in little mountain towns with trails outside their doors and others live in big cities where skiing is confined to a small hill.

Eastern Canadian Championships Classic Pursuit

For the second time this week, Colin Ferrie won a gold medal for the Callaghan Valley Training Centre at the Eastern Canadian Championships.  Ferrie finished as the first junior (18th overall) in the 30 km classic event.  This moved him up through the pack and into 2nd place (21st overall) in the overall 3-stage event.  This is the CVTC's (and Colin's) second gold medal of the season.

Tough Slogging on Day 2 of Eastern Canadian Championships for CVTC

The CVTC team continued the three-day stage race of Eastern Canadian Championships today with an interval start skate race.  The top result of the day was Sebastien Dandurand, a former nordic combined athlete from Calgary, Alberta, who placed 3rd in the Junior event an 18th overall.  Sebastien has been consistently improving this season and this placing is just one more step up the ladder for the talented junior.
