The Cascade Cup at Manning Park

On February 4th, the UBC Nordic Team headed to Manning Park Ski Resort to compete in the 30K Cascade Cup Loppet. Braving the snowy roads, the team made it on time (10 minutes before start), and competed to see each member of the team take a stand on the podium.

Post-doc diabetes researcher at UBC, Evgeniy Panzhinskiy, took 1st place, outsprinting UBC Alumni Nico Petch. Blakely Brown came in 3rd place.

Andrea Lee took a 1st place finish for the women, and Nora Apelgren took a 3rd in her age group as well.

The conditions were chilly, but the trails at Manning proved to be fun and enjoyable even in the blistery wind.

Nice job to all who raced!
