Summer is in full swing in Peru, the nordic mecca, and the Peru Nordiques have been busy training for the upcoming season.
Mountain Bike racing has become the bulk of the training, with the extremely fun ChasmRiders Race Series being the focus. Last Sunday, three generations of Hands of Doom were spotted at the Chasm. Chris Rose and brother Mike took 2nd and 3rd in the Advanced Men’s 3 lap race, while Patriarch Mad Dog Rose finished 6th. Young-gun star, and future Viking Helmet Champion, S. Rose clawed his way to a first overall in the Boys Intermediate Kids race… and won big $$$ at the race raffle! If you haven’t been out to the Chasm on a Sunday, you have been missing out. The ChasmRiders series continues each Sunday at 10 am (registration at 9:45). MTB and Destroy!
In addition to MTB racing, the intrepid Nordiques have begun the annual Summer FIGHT Club (Frickin’ Intense Good Hard Training). Each week an Iron-Maiden specific workout challenges participants. Running, Cycling and Rollerskiing are combined in the summer heat and humidity to pound the Nordiques into submission before they hit the pavement on the last Saturday in July for the IMT.
Summer is also time to re-up your NYSSRA Nordic racing license. Remember, your license fee goes to support Nordic skiing and ski racing in NY State. Without NYSSRA, there would be no racing… re-up or join up NOW!
