The Rim Nordic finals
By Jeroen Bosboom
And moving on to Sunday's race at Rim Nordic... The series finale, Nathan placed second in 19-24 XC
sport class and second overall in the final series standings! Well done Nathan you hung in there
and finished strong! Mike Caffrey narrowly missed third place in the 35-39 XC sport event. He
finished fifth in the overall.
For my Rim Nordic race I slowly put myself together from the previous day of racing and a restless
night reliving it all. After an hour warm up I lined up for my race. I noticed Johnny O'Mara was
absent (that bribe I paid worked ;-) and I calculated that I had the series second overall
clinched. I led from the start and tried to hold the lead. After some shuffling I had a 40 minute
battle for second place in the race. I finished 6 minutes or so ahead of third place and 2 minutes
behind first. I finished second in the 40-44 expert XC series standings.
A very good weekend for the Warriors Society race team.
