Rocking the Ridge Meadows Jingle Bell Cup

IMG_1410

 
Congratulations to Tomas, Peyton, Toria & Casey  who travelled to Ridge Meadows this past weekend. In an interesting format each racer raced 2 – 500m and 2 – 1000m. It was great to see the tactics learned after the first race applied in the second.

We left (“must catch the ferry”) before the medals were awarded but I believe that each of the 4 qualified for the podium.  (And thanks to the Race Organizers who will mail them)

Way to go!
