Foothills Pursuit Roller Ski Time Trial Results

The Foothills Nordic Ski Club was joined by the Canmore Nordic Ski Club and a surprisingly large contingent of high level skiers for a pursuit roller ski time trial at the Bow Valley Campground on Saturday. The race was held on what turned out to be one of the last fall days of the season, as snow hit the area the following day and buried much of the course.

A strong westerly wind greeted racers and made for a fast wind assisted start. Things got tougher at the halfway point of each leg of the pursuit as racers had to battle their way back into the strong wind. Chris Jeffries and Rhonda Jewett both dominated their respective distances, making the pace hard right from the start and not letting up until they cruised across their finish lines for the win.
