Glenshee Skier Cross
What another great weekend of racing in Glenshee. Even though the wind provided us some challenging conditions, the Gordon Skiers put in some impressive performances.
A full day of individual Qualifying on Saturday set the racers up for a day of elbow to elbow racing for the finals on Sunday. Four racers at a time took on the course and the racing was very close.
In the U12's Nathan Smith took home the gold with Jamie Liversidge close behind in Silver. Top performances from both young men. Ben Whatford also made the final, but lost his third place close to the line to finish in 4'th. Very nearly a full Gordon's podium.
The girls U16 was a full Gordon's podium. Ruby Still took the gold whilst Beth Whatford came from the back to hold the Silver position, with Rachel Brown in Bronze. Morven Douglas made it to the wee Final and took the win for 5'th place.
A welcome return to racing for past member Connor Douglas (Morven's brother) He also made it to the final and was in third position, but took a tumble at the last feature. Unlucky Connor, but a well deserved 4'th.
