Red Mountain Racers going strong through February

Red Mountain Racers have had some great results this month, and are now preparing for the final races this March and April.

Soleil Paterson has had some excellent races, recently placing 4th and 5th at the Canadian Junior National Championships, and also winning a gold at the FIS Fidelity Cup at Lake Louise earlier in the month, as well as a 2nd in SG and in Downhill.  Sammie Gaul won the BC U16 Dual Night Slalom at Apex, and had a 2nd and 4th in her first Super-G race.  Heiko Ihns has just hit the podium twice with two silver finishes in GS and SL at the BC Winter Games.  Great performances from lots of other racers with top-20 finishes, and racing beating their bibs and improving, regardless of their finish.

Next up, the Red Mountain Racers will be hosting a FIS Fidelity BC Cup race this Thursday to Sunday.  Volunteers are still needed - let us know if you're available to help out, we need lots of man and womanpower to pull off concurrent men's and ladies' races on Back Trail and the Face of Red.  Looking forward to seeing some excellent racing!
