Skipping

The Takhini Heartbeaters skipping team returned from the National Skipping Championships in Montreal, held on May 20-21.

The team included Erin Borgford, Rebecca Dunstan, Alexandra Schultz and Taylor Forsgren.

Although the team didn’t capture any medals. The trip offered a chance to check out some top-level skippers in action.

“We saw some really good skipping — teams that were vying for a spot at the World Championships, which are in Toronto in July,” said coach Judy Ratcliffe.

The Heartbeaters’ best finishes were a sixth place in the double-dutch speed relay, and ninth in the double-dutch pairs freestyle.

The team ranked 13 out of 17 teams in overall scores.

Taylor Forsgren also competed individually, finishing 22 out of 45 skippers.

VeloNorth Cycling

Good weather, clean roads and shaved legs … what more could the 39 riders, comprising 12 teams taking part in VeloNorth’s annual team time trial ask for.

With the Kluane to Chilkat International Bike Relay just around the corner, this event provided the ideal opportunity to test fitness, practice riding in a pace line and to log some hard kilometres.

Paul Christensen and Jonah Clark joined forces as a two-person team called Big and Dumb.

This duo blistered the 48-kilometre course in a time of one hour, eight minutes and 28 seconds, leaving little doubt who was fastest.

In second place a minute and 10 seconds behind Big and Dumb was the Green Team made up of Glen Iceton, Scott Kirby and Jerome McIntyre.

Probably the most confusing thing about the evening was the wind. Just about everyone wanted to know how you can have a headwind for the whole distance if it is an out-and-back course?

Top finishers:

1st Big and Dumb (Paul Christensen, Jonah Clark) — 1:08:28

2nd Green Team (Scott Kirby, Jerome McIntyre and Glen Iceton) — 1:09:38

3rd TJ Train (Troy Henry, Jesse Reams and Mac Hislop) — 1:12:20

4th Mucho Cervezas (Aaron Foos, Allison Furniss, Brian MacDonald, Dan Reimer and Darren Holcombe) — 1:16:32

5th Five Pack (Mike Buxton-Carr, Dale Ristau, Rob Gaetz, Brad Barton and Rick Scramstad) — 1:17:25
