Outstanding Race Series for Barton
Barton P is having an outstanding season of cross country ski racing. Â The first being back in January where he completed the Kelowna Apple Loppet race, the first 30k race of five! Â Next came the Nickel Plate Loppet (Apex) on February 7th. Â Most would take a week or so to rest up but not Barton. Â The following weekend, February 14th he was back racing the Cascade Cup Classic Loppet (Manning Park). Â Â If that wasn’t enough the following day he was back at the start line for yet another race! Â The Overlander Loppet (kamloops). Â Barton then took a few days of rest before he raced the Sovereign Lake Loppet (Vernon) on Â March 8th, 2015.
Barton says, “Conditions were marginal, with temperatures mostly above zero. Â Some courses such as Kamloops had significant amounts of ice”.
Congratulations to you Barton on winning a participation award for the Okanagan Loppet Series.
