It was a weekend of firsts for the dogs, as this was the first race for five of them. It was also the first race for Roxy running lead for our Open team since joining our kennel last march.
This was also a break through race for Bergen running lead at a race. Last year she stopped just after starting through lack of confidence at a race in the lead position. This year running co-lead with Roxy, she was the pace setter and Roxy the motivator. The team all performed well and ran a trouble free race both days.
Cecile ran her first race in the 6 dog Class and did a great job running another trouble free race. This was Tepeu and Yakuk's first race and both performed fantastic.
In the Open Team Kira, Merry and Frodo all performed exceptionally in their first experience with racing.
Tiasa ran Cosmos in their first Skijour Race. A fantastic performance over the two days.
Thanks to all the hard work of Simon Drouin for organizing and preparing a great race with incredible trails. With a lot of hard work grooming through Friday and Saturday nights, they removed over 18 inches of fresh snow that fell over the weekend.
Now, we are back home to prepare our teams for the next race in two weeks at L'Epiphanie, Quebec.
New photos of the weekend will be posted when available.
Until next week......
