The Strathcona Nordic Ski Club is sending their team of young racers off to the B.C. Midget (cross-country ski) Championships in Revelstoke this week.

The Devo team has been training hard on Mount Washington all winter, and this championship race in Revelstoke will be the highlight of the season for many of the kids. The team aims to ski fast and have fun, and they also hope to bring some medals back to Vancouver Island.
