Mono Nordic racers prevailed over very icy and difficult trail conditions at the Midland SnowDogs Race this past weekend. Over 20 Mono Nordic racers participated in both the classic and skate ski events and several came away with medals in both techniques. In the top three in their categories were both Graham and Alexander Maycock, Emma Perry, Anthony Burgess, Ben Sullivan, Devin Martin, Graham Perry, Quin Martin, Lindsay Santagato, Jane Ravenshaw, and Amy Santagato.
This race is the second this season but with the largest representation by Mono Nordic’s team. The University of Guelph Gryphons nordic ski team also train and race with Mono Nordic and had an excellent showing from their racers at this Midland race. From here the team moves on to races in Owen Sound, Wasaga Beach, and the annual Invitational race hosted by Mono Nordic on Saturday January 28 here in Orangeville. A select number of junior racers will also compete at Ontario Cup races in Ottawa, Timmins, Collingwood, as well as Midget Championships in Sault Ste Marie and at the Haywood 2012 Ski Nationals at the end of the season.
