Wed Night Race #1 results posted

Events News December 6, 2012

Forty skiers lined up on the start line yesterday evening in the first of 13 Wednesday Night Races at Windsor Park Nordic Centre in Winnipeg.

Über athlete Murray Carter of St. Anne skied an impressive sub 11 minute 5K lap on the rocket fast classic tracks while young upstarts Conor McGovern of Winnipeg & Levi Nadlersmith of Boissevain raced close behind. Former directeur sportif for the Wed Night races, the multi talented Larry Paetkau, made his intentions of dominating the Master 6 category clear by pulling off the win in his age category. And racing fans will want to keep an eye on future mass start match ups between Red River Nordic team mates Fiona McIsaac and Anna Kroeker who were a mere 3/10ths of a second of each other in last night’s interval start event.

Next week’s event is a skate race and no one should miss the following week’s race, last before the holidays – a Candy Cane relay!
