The Ontario Cross Country Ski Championships took place this past weekend in Onaping Falls (40 min north of Sudbury). There were two races - the 10K Skate on Saturday, and the 20K Classic on Sunday. As you are aware, many cyclists in Canada use XC skiing as a way to train throughout the winter months.
"Rocket" Reece Rendall, who Mountain Bike and XC Ski races for Team Scary Fast/PowerBar/Oakley, finished 2nd in the 10K Skate and won the 20K Classic race in the Masters 30-34 Catagory. Reece also won the Keskinada 28K Skate race this season.
Rob Cheskey, who Road & Cyclocross races for Hamilton Cycling Club and the Halton XC club, finished 4th in the 10K Skate and 3rd in the 20K Classic race in the Masters 40-44 Category.
