Amber Ferreira… 4th place
Jason Ayr… possibly top 20
Kristina Folcik-Welts… 10th
Then there was Nacho Hernando, who was representing Spain.
Amber posted this on her Facebook page:
4th overall at the World Snowshoe Championships!! I went out way too fast. It was 0 degrees. My quads cramped. Pain was my friend. I raced aR. It was an AWESOMELY challenging race course.
Cold weather? For a snowshoe race?! I guess that shouldn’t be unexpected. But that still is pretty cold.
Got a few actions shots of Jason Ayr, courtesy of Steph Wilson. For now, here’s Jason finishing.
