• Alex 50km Lahti Champion
    • McMurtry and Marshall take top honours in Haywood NorAm for 2012

      February 24, 2012


      McMurtry and Kevin Sandau battled through the last race of the Haywood series, a mass start 20 km at parc national du Mont Orford to determine the Haywood NorAm winner.  While Sandau won the race, McMurtry won the battle with a solid 3rd place in the 20 km and the Haywood NorAm crown.  In the ladies race for top honours both Allyson Marshall and Emily Nishikawa decided to pass on the final NorAm competitions in Orford to prepare for mid-season European trips.  The ladies showdown occurred at the Haywood NorAm Eastern Canadians hosted at the Nakkertok Ski Club where Marshall outpaced the pack and won the overall 3 day mini-tour and the Haywood crown for 2012.  Nishikawa finished a close second to the BC and Alberta World Cup Academy skier.  The top 3 athletes will receive a cash bonus from Haywood in recognition of their efforts on the domestic circuit.



      The battle for the FIS Regional Series Champion will be decided at the Haywood Ski Nationals starting on March 17 in Quebec City.  Registration / Entry Information is now on line at
