45 racers showed up for the Biathlon Tuesday Night Race last night – with racers choosing classic or skate, with the biathlon shooting range at the teaching flats part way through the lap.
When shooting, if racers missed a shot they had to do a penalty lap of the teaching flats too. Here’s a great shot of two of our racers under pressure!
Please note that next week’s Tuesday Night Race is a VALENTINE’S DAY special!
WHAT: relay skate race in colours.
WHEN: Tues Feb 14 . Sign in (waivers) 6 pm . Race starts at 7 pm. If you can’t make the race, just join us for a quick beer 9 PM!
WEAR: Any racer who is NOT wearing a minimum of 10 cm of either red, pink or lingerie must do a mini penalty lap like in biathlon AND catch Bob Putnam to give him a Valentine’s hug.
- LeMans start : Partner A: At the ‘gun’ you sprint ON FOOT to choose your relay “baton” which is a heart. Sprint back to get your skis on to glide your heart out 3 laps around the main course. You can just stuff the heart in your pocket.
- Once back, give the heart to partner B who then skis the 3 lap course to the finish with the heart and blows a kiss of thanks to Dave at the finish line (cos he registered you, timed you and he runs the show)
- Remember, you must cross the line with the heart so don’t drop it!
SOCIAL AFTERWARDS: We will meet afterwards at the Queens Cross Pub 2989 Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver.
Results from last night’s race (top 5 male racers only did one lap so please disregard for now).
