The weather gods smiled on Huntly for the second time this year with perfect weather for roller ski racing. Just the right temperature and no rain!
We had a good number of entries this year with entrants from as far afield as Switzerland and a couple of spectators from Saskatoon Nordic (http://www.saskatoonnordicski.ca). It was particularly pleasing to see the service represented this year with entries from the Royal Engineers and RAF Nordic.
The results for the event are attached in the pdf below. It was great to see Cameron Cruickshank get with in 3 seconds of Andrew Musgrave’s course record.
The Huntly sprints and Clash hill climb were held over the weekend of 26-27th May with warm and sunny conditions which made for some wonderful races. We also ran some mini sprints for all comers on the Friday evening, with entrants ranging from first time racers to experienced veterans. All the results are below:
Thank you to all who took part and a big thank you to all the numerous marshals, without their support we wouldn’t be able to put on such a fine set of races.
There are lots of photos on our Facebook page – thanks Alan.
A special mention should be made of all four winners of the Clashindarroch Hill Climbs: Holly Rees-Lay, Jasmine Uth, Callum Smith & Logan Duncan all set the second fastest times ever for their respective climbs. Which according to my logic makes it the overall fastest Clash climb ever.
The HNSC open championships were held on Sunday 4th March 2018 in the Clashindarroch Forest. Snow conditions were excellent, and it was cold with further snow falling all day. Many thanks to everyone who helped with organising and running the event especially Jason, Rick and Colin for trail preparation.
Congratulations to all 53 competitors, the results were:
This season snow factory technology will be trialled at several downhill centres this winter (Lecht, Glencoe, Cairngorm). BSS & SSS are involved with the Lecht trial where ~500m of x/c trail will be put in place. The flier from BSS gives an idea of what is going on. The club will be involved in the cross-country element of the project & organising things over the weekend 17/18 Feb 2018
