Boca Time Trail, Freestyle Roller-ski

This was our first mass start roller-ski race, and it was amazing. We started in the lake effect fog and climbed into the sun. The women's course finished on top of the first categorized climb and the men's on top of the second. The women's course was 8.2 km and the men's course was 11.6 km. We tried to have everyone on Marwe's so the race was close to even! The PACK stayed together for the first three km, then August B. made a move, which broke things up a bit. The next move came on the first categorized climb, and proved to be the move that would last. Here are some photos and the results on the line:

1) Ian 32:08
2) Elias 32:14
3) August B. 32:24
4) Trygve 32:35
5) Lutz 32:53
6) Gus 33:35
7) Kelly 35:17

1) Ase 23:54
