Telstar Relays!

January 6, 2014

Gould takes SECOND place in the relay and First in the indivdual race.  We were blessed with perfect conditions for racing. The day started with -20+ degrees( -30 at my house when I got up at 4:30am to groom the course).  By mid morning the sun had come out and temps got into the teens.   The relay team of Leela, Caleb, Rachael, and Marcello took advantage of the local course and mixed it up with the top teams. For the first three legs they bounced around from third to sixth going into the final leg in fifth. Marcello ripped up the course bringing the team into second gaining rapidly on yarmouth.  Our other relay team of Rose, Marcus, Ani, and Andrew had a great race going ending short of the finish when Andrew hooked a tip and visited the woods.

Telstar added a individual race for those not on teams, which was great for use with not enough girls to make more teams.  Aiden lead the whole way bringing home the WIN!. Max and Schuyler work together most of the race working there way up through the lead pack. Max finished 4th and Schuyler 7th.  Fun to get back in racing mode, next week we are off to leavitt for the Hornet Classic. Below are a couple links to checkout.
