Comox Valley club hauls in medals at BC Cup race in Prince George

In spite of minimal time on snow this season, the Strathcona Nordic Ski Club race team brought hardware home from the BC Cup 1 race in Prince George last weekend. Thirteen racers made the long trek from the Island to Prince George along with club coaches and support crew.

Head coach Dave Battison says, “It was fantastic! I was very proud of all of our racers. They haven’t had any training time on snow yet this year, and everyone performed well. The other teams have been training on snow for many weeks at this point. Our team did really well, which is due to all of the hard work that everyone has put into dryland training this year.”

In the skate technique races, the following athletes won medals: Ross Lamon – silver, Tallon Noble – silver, Avalon Wasteneys – silver, Alec Stapff – bronze, Marilyn Atkinson – bronze. In classic technique races, Tallon Noble brought home a silver medal and Marilyn Atkinson a bronze medal.

Strathcona Nordics racers look forward to the BC Cup 2 races in Kamloops later this month. They hope the snow gods smile on Mount Washington soon, so they can begin training on snow for this next race. The Strathcona Nordics recreational programs are scheduled to begin this weekend, so the whole club is watching the weather forecast.
