On Sunday 28 February, we welcomed Skimo Scotland to Nevis Range for the Macpac Nevis Range Vertical. Conditions over the weekend couldn’t have been better with blue skies, brilliant snow and crystal clear visibility. In total, 33 racers entered the Macpac Nevis Range Vertical on Sunday, with Ben Bardsley winning his first race in the Skimo series ahead of Dutch Bjorn Verduijn and NZ racer Matt Reedy. Anthony Robert’s pipped Neil Raitt to win the unofficial Male Vet category, a reverse from the previous day of racing in Glencoe.
Jozi MacKova secured her second win of the weekend on Sunday after winning in Glencoe on Saturday, with Suzy Devey and Rosanna Henstock taking 2nd and 3rd places. Sue Savege won 1st place in the unofficial Female Vet category ahead of Susan Houstoun, once again a reverse from the previous day.
We were delighted to host Skimo for another great day of racing this season, receiving fantastic feedback from both competitors and spectators. We hope you’ll all come along and support the racers taking part in the next Skimo Scotland race – Cairngorm Mountain Sports Nevis Range on Saturday 19 March 2016. All the details for the next race can be found on the Skimo Scotland website.
