30 years ago, the Metal Classic, Defenders of the Faith, was released by Metal Icons, Judas Priest. To celebrate this momentous event, the Peru Nordic Masters are dedicating this year’s NYSSRA Championships to commemorate this classic piece of sonic mastery reaching a new level of Masterhood (M1).
On Saturday, the Nordiques look to dominate the Club Championship relays. There are three relays, a Men’s Team, Women’s Team and a Mixed Team. If Peru Nordic can win at least two of those events, they will be in great position to win the 2015 Club Championship Banner at the 20 km Classic on Sunday at Mt. Van Hoevenberg.
The lineups for the relays have not been officially set, but some information has leaked to Windbriefs from Peru Nordic World Domination Headquarters.
It appears that Peru will most likely be putting Mike Wynn and Jan Wellford together in the Men’s race. No one likes beating HURT more than Mike Wynn and with Wellford he has the horse to effectively tangle with HURT’s formidable power-trio of Aaron Huneck, Chris Yarsevich and Dave Kvam.
Also, look for Amanda Zullo and Janet Findlay to pair up in the Womens relay, perhaps even skiing with Biathlete powerhouse, Rosanne Van Dorn. This trio should tear through the course and contend for the Women’s crown.
There are many pieces to the puzzle that have yet to be worked out. Big time commitments to race from stars like Marque Moffett, Star Cook and Ed Lis. There is even an unsubstantiated rumor that skiing dynamo, R. Duncan Douglas may be inked to a contract just before race time. However it all shakes out, count on a strong contingent of Nordiques to be out in force on Saturday to Ski and Destroy! C’mon out to Van Ho on Saturday afternoon to witness the carnage… Some heads are gonna roll!
