“Over all our racers I talked to were happy with how they raced and they stacked up well against the nation’s best,” Bruce Granstrom wrote in a post on the Revelstoke Nordic Ski Racers Facebook page. “[…]B.C. had a very strong showing today and our little club has gotten some attention with the number of top 30 finishers we had today.”

A total of 12 athletes from the Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club are participating in the 2018 Ski Nationals, which wrap up on March 17. You can keep up with the results here.
