Last weekend, a large team of young Strathcona Nordic ski racers enjoyed themselves at the Teck Coast Cup #2 race at Whistler Olympic Park. In addition to having a great time, the Devo team of 25-plus racers brought home a wealth of medals.

Race conditions were near perfect at -5C under clear blue skies, and with Olympic memories at the venue still fresh, the young racers enjoyed skiing on the same tracks as elite racers did just a few short years ago. Whatever the reason, the Strathcona Nordics racers were clearly inspired.

First place finishers in the Atom, Peewee, Bantam, and Midget age categories include Liam Bugslag, Hugo Henckel, Theo Lemay, and Emmy Stapff.

Ben Prager took a second, and third place finishers were Kai McGrady, Matthew Salmon, Callam Barry, and Amelia Wells. Special mention goes to Sebastien Marcoux for his strong third place finish in the Masters Men category.

After two races in the Teck Coast Cup series, the Strathcona Nordics currently have a lock on third place – and the club will make a determined run for top spot with the final two races of the series being held on home turf at Mount Washington Nordic on March 9 and 10.
