24 racers completed the 1st Gurney Lane 5k Snowshoe Race at the Gurney Lane Recreation Area in Queensbury, NY. While nature was not entirely cooperative in providing good snow cover, RD Bob Underwood pulled together a rolling course with what snow could be found, with the snowshoers followed by fat bike racing in the afternoon. Series regulars Tim Van Orden and Christine Natalie took the 1st place positions. Full results can be found here.
For the 3rd year in a row RD Mike Owens put together a challenging race in Londonderry VT, this time at Magic Mountain Ski Resort. A late week storm left the Winter Magic course with plenty of snow, resulting in a 2 loop 2.9 km race for series points that 20 racers completed; several attendees completed an untimed single loop as well. Tim Van Orden took his second 1st place finish of the weekend, with Laurie Raffensperger finishing seconds ahead of last year’s womens’ champion Jess Northan. Full results can be found here.
