Training Week of Jan 17
Congrats to all the Racers that participated in the Nakkertok Invitationals.
Also kudos to those that battled the elements to take advantage of the new snow on Saturday a.m. The dedication award of the week goes to Katie for continuing on from Saturday training to help with the Dyna Rabbit group in the afternoon.
Tuesday Jan 18 6:30: Riverfront Park. Classic for those doing classic. If you have rock skis bring them. If not you are okeh we may have you avoid some areas though as coverage is thin.
Thursday Jan 20, 6:30:
Meet at the Relais de Plein Air in Gatineau to ski the Coupe Skinouk Courses, even if you are not doing the race. Start time is 6:30. Temperature is in the -10 C range, dress in layers. We will be skiing at a reasonable but not hard pace. Bring a light but not absolutely necessary. Technique is your choice. If you like bring classic and skate skis we will ski both courses regardless. Let me know if you are coming.

Note that the arrow on the Google map at the link above suggests that the Relais is on blvd Cite des Jeunes. However, just past the secondary school you must turn left, and then about 100 metres later, turn right, follow this to the stadium.
Saturday Jan 22, 9:30: Riverfront Park, technique is your choice. We will focus on technique and a light work out as many of you are racing on Sunday. Dress with several layers and bring a balaclava.
Sunday Jan-23rd Combined CLASSIC and SKATE Coupe Skinouk Ski Race at Gatineau Park P2 (on trails in the area south of Relais Plein Air). Morning Classic Prologue and afternoon Skate Race. Remember the registration deadline is midnight on Thursday night Jan-20th.
