Strathcona Nordics hosting Teck Coast Cup races this weekend

Cross-country skiers will be in action Feb. 13-14 at Mount Washington

The Nordics are hosting two big races this weekend on Mount Washington.

The Teck Coast Cups #4 and #5 will be held this weekend (Feb. 13-14) at Mount Washington Alpine Resort, Raven Lodge Nordic Centre.

Hosted by the Strathcona Nordic Ski Club, the Teck Coast Cup weekend will feature local cross-country ski racers of all age groups from across Vancouver Island as well as racers from the Lower Mainland. It’s a great chance to cheer on local athletes as well as their competitors.

Recently back from the BC Cup #2 are members of the Nordic Junior and Devo racing teams whose results included a strong first place by Tallon Noble in the Junior Boys Free Individual Start.

Midget boys were an impressive 1-2-3 with Aiden Noble first with teammates Gabe Gledhill and Stephen Lamon behind him. Hugo Henckel also placed well with third in Bantam Boys.

On the girls side there were solid performances by Emmy Stapff, Amelia Wells, Anneliese Henckel and Emma Wong. The following day saw more fine finishes with Ross Lamon placing third in Juvenile Boys and Gabe Gledhill first in the Mass Start race.

Many of these same athletes will be heading in twoweeks to the BC Winter Games. This weekend’s Teck Coast Cups are a great chance to catch them in action on our local hill.

Event schedule: Saturday, Feb. 13 11 a.m. Classic Technique Interval Start. Sunday, Feb. 14 10:30 a.m. Free Technique Mass Start.
