Here are the revised British Championship results which were from the Higland Nordic Event at Cairngorm this weekend
This year’s Huntly Championships were blessed with some of the best weather we have seen in the last 5 years. From the start of the races we had wall to wall sunshine and not a drop of rain fell on the track all day.
There was an impressive turn out in the Novice class with 11 entrants highest number in any group for the day, it was great to see so many younger skiers racing. Caringorm put in a good showing in this class with club members Connor Sinclair and Stephanie Dare picking up the first boy and girl titles respectively. Huntly skier Laura Patterson picked up the fastest U10 title, beating her mother Zosia by 34 seconds.
Huntly also did well in the U12/U14 3.7km race, Oliver Newman managed to beat his brother Fergust to 1st U14, while Lynne Gray stole a 5 second lead over Beth Maclean in the U14 F classification.
In the older age groups Cairngorn dominance reasserted itself, with Robers Sircus and Hector Cowie taking off the Senior and U18 titles. Second and Third place in the Senior race was a close run thing with Carl Carrier seeing off Carl Pointer by a narrow 10 seconds. Watch out next year Mr Carrier! Huntly Skier Duncan Gibb took faster U16 M while David Horsley was the fastest Vet M. Fiona Crossley had a lonely race taking first place Vet F.
