MHRC Weekly Racing Update

Hello MHRC famillies,

Looks like winter has finally arrived!  Fingers crossed for more snow and cold weather in February.

It was a great week of training and racing for MHRC.

Don’t forget to to send any photos of your group to your Team Manager so that they can be included in the weekly update and posted on the website blog.

Here are some of the highlights from this past week.

JDL U10

This Saturday our JDL racers completed their first Fun Race at Glen Eden! There were lots of nerves and butterflies in tummies, but the kids had a great time running the course and made some excellent strides in their skiing!

JDL U12

The JDL U12 athletes had a blast at the Fun Race on Saturday. For some of them, it was the first time doing a race course and they all did great! Lots of smiles, rosy cheeks and no falls.

JDL 12-14

The JDL 12-14 athletes continued their training this week.  They had a great time on the race course going around and through the gates! Check out the great action photos that were taken of some of the athletes.

U8/U10

On Saturday, the team had their first race of the year at Glen Eden. They had fun racing down Challenger and gained more confidence skiing a course.

When they weren’t racing, the skiers were busy training and working through a number of drills. They enjoyed skiing more terrain with much improved snow conditions.

U12

U12 spent the entire weekend training at Glen Eden.  It was a great opportunity to continue developing their skills and building friendships.  While the team was disappointed to reschedule their race, the weather cooperated for two full days of training.  The team is looking forward to hosting a race this Saturday at Glen Eden.

U14

Giant Slalom Race at Glacier (Moonstone)

Comfortable temperature, sunshine, more powder than usual and smiling athletes, what more could you ask for? Our athletes had a good day last Sunday. They had fun, raced confidently and showed determination.

As for results, in the female division, Mara Bucur placed 9th, followed by Avery Oh then Tara Dosen. In the male division, William Watkins placed 15th, followed by Ashton Baxter then Connor Rebstock.

A special thank you to all of our parent volunteers. The coat runners were at it again for the second week in a row and so were our coat collectors. We will need all of you (U14 team parents) to help out this Sunday with the race being at home on either Boomerang or Sidewinder.

See you on Thursday night as we train for the Slalom race at Glen Eden.

U16/U19

We finally found winter-like weather, and the U16-19 spent the past week training at Glen Eden, preparing for the upcoming GS race at Blue Mountain.  Shout out to new coaches Nicole and Savannah, who used their team as guinea pigs and set their first courses!  Both athletes’s agreed that coach Rob still sets a better course but nice to see the next generation is getting a chance to learn the ropes.
