Peru Nordic captured the overall Men’s and Women’s races at the annual NYSEF Season Opener at Mt Van Hoevenberg. Paul “Pallbearer of Panic” Allison and Janet “Banshee of Bedlam” Findlay each won their races and led a strong contingent of Peru Nordiques at the opening race of the NYSSRA Season.
Racers were treated to awesome mid-winter conditions as they raced around two laps of the recently homologated Ladies’ 5 course.
Peru Nordic had a large field of skiers who put in some strong results including age-class wins in the SRM (Paul Allison), M3M (Chris Rose), M4M (Jim Kobak), M5M (Stan Hatch), M7M (Dave F’n Burt), M8M (Chris Beattie), and M2F (Amanda Zullo), M3F (Connie Prickett), M6F (Janet Findlay)
The next NYSSRA Race is the Wilkinson Cup #1 Osceola Pie Race next weekend, Dec 21 in Tug Hill. This race is pretty far away for most Peruvians, but hopefully a contingent will be able to show up to SKI and Destroy!! On Dec 28, the NYSSRA Season rolls into Saratoga Biathlon Club for the ADK Vauhti Duathlon… Expect a big showing of Nordiques at that one for sure!
Don’t forget, the Wednesday WAR ENSEMBLE marches on… this week is a skating race… 4pm Gauntlet Stadium: BE THERE!!
