The 2017 Sprint X at Lake Mountain has been run & won. Last year’s winners, local girl Katerina Paul and Sochi Olympian Phillip Bellingham put on a powerful display to take out the open 1st places. The Sprint X is an event that was created to target ski enthusiasts who love to sprint but adds plenty of extra challenge not found in normal ski racing, all on artificial snow.
Fresh & man-made snow covered the tight and interesting course. Skills and agility were definitely needed to navigate the surprisingly fun but tough course.
After the sprinting was done everybody joined in a somewhat random Dash for Cash (& other prizes). A very competitive field also gave the judges a tough choice in the ‘Best World Leader’ costume comp, again taken out by Ash Spittle (Kevin 07) with an honourable mention to Nick Montgomery.
