Two strong races already down for Golden Nordic Racers’ season

The Golden Nordic Racers season started off the first weekend in December with two distance races in Vernon.

Nordic Ski Racing is now in full force for the winter, and the Golden Nordic Club is off to a great start.

The Golden Nordic Racers season started off the first weekend in December with  two distance races in Vernon B.C. There were four kids representing Golden Nordic. Ben Gadd, Robert Caldwell, Douglas Caldwell and Quinn Morgan.

There was definitely some tough racing, but the Golden Nordic Club walked away with multiple top-10 finishes. The second race of the year was at Noram in Rossland B.C, and this was three days of hard racing.

Temperatures hovered around minus 20 for the weekend. Golden was represented by Morgan and Gadd. Morgan did very well with two third places and one fifth place.

Rossland is known to have one of the hardest courses in North America. Christmas break will allow for some good training to be ready for the B.C cup in January.
