Canadian XC Nationals Finish Line => Ralph Steadman’s The Winners ;-)

I attended the Canadian XC Ski Nationals at Whistler Olympic Park last Sunday to watch my niece race the 15k. She did great.

It was cool to see the future Olympic site in action. The stadium concept allowed us to see a lot of skiing from a single vantage point.


The Finish Line 😉 — These XC types are “hardcore”. The hill climbs were wicked and most racers really powered up them. The result of that hard work was not pretty at the finish line. The racers came thru extremely spent 👿 It reminded me of Ralph Steadman’s “The Winners” in Hunter S. Thompson’sThe Curse of Lono“.
