|Sandau and Lennes Win Western Canadian Rollerski Championships Skate Race|
Although previously reported that Brooke Gosling won the second day of competition at the Western Canadian Rollerski Championships, a timing mistake shows that the winner on the day was actually Rhonda Sandau of the Exel Racing Team. Sandau's winning time of 21 minutes and 31 seconds was put her on the top of the podium, 46 seconds ahead of National Team skier Dasha Gaiazova.
Although in the men's race it was junior skier Haakon Lenes standing atop the podium as previously reported, his winning margin was only 6 seconds over Banff Ski Runner club mate Jess Cockney. Cockney's time was originally incorrect by 1 minute.
The course started on the 1A highway in Harvey Heights and after an opening 5 kilometers of rolling terrain turned straight uphill for the final 2km to finish at the Silver Tip Golf Course.
Thank you to Steve Sellers and his group of volunteers for making the event possible.Western Canadian 7km Skate Roller Ski Championships - Canmore, AB (Corrected Results)
