My wife Annie is amazing! Her first international XC ski race at age 48. She did really well at the 16km classic. My race was the 34km classic. I had another good with a top 100. Double poled it!!

First off, Malmo
Phil skied Iceland's Worldloppet on April 30th 2016 with some impressive results !
Parc de la Mauricie. March 15 2016
Cross country ski raced a 5K in January. Came in first. Trained often in this park from late December to late March 2016. The best closest place to cross country ski train nearest my hometown of Rosemere.
Coupe Québec at Far Hills, Val-Morin Qc. March 14 2016
A repeat of years past. Fast and rather dangerous conditions. Narrow icy trail. Combine that with lots of racers on a 5km loop. Starting from behind many skiers I managed a good race with a first place among the masters. Just like the previous 5 Coupe Québec at Far Hills.
Oka Ski Marathon, Oka Qc. March 6 2016
I won the Oka Ski Marathon three times. This year I have enjoyed doing the Oka Ski Marathon’s 5km race with my wife Annie. Short but intense. A gold medal for me and a gold medal for her in our age category. Not bad for a couple in their late 40ies. Plus I had the time to whip out my I-phone 6 and film my wife Annie in the final 300 meter sprint she skied. Freedom to record history. And freedom to encourage fellow racers as they skied their final 21km lap of the 42km full Oka Ski Marathon.
Ski Tour Canada, March 1 2016
I was a spectator at 2 World Cup Cross Country Ski events of the Canada Tour. Namely in Gatineau and Montreal. Although many Canadian athletes placed in the Top 10, it was Norway that impressed the most. Norway has always been a power-house in cross country ski racing.
Gatineauloppet, Gatineau Qc. February 27-28 2016
Two 50Km Worldloppets in 2 days. Saturday 51km classic race in a time of 2h45 minutes. 16th place overall and similar results in Sundays 51km freestyle race. Not bad for a 50 year old!
Canadian Ski Marathon, Lachute, Québec. February 20-21 2016
50th anniversary of CSM. Buckingham to Montebello to Lachute. I skied the first day from Buckingham to Montebello. Approximately 80kms. At Sunday evening’s banquet I enjoyed giving away a pair of Skikes on behalf of skikecanada.ca.
Germany & Austria, February 2016
The best and yet closest place to cross country ski train was in Ehrwald, Austria. We stayed near the fabled Worldloppet in Bavarian Germany. Because the event was cancelled due to lack of snow, we would travel 45 minutes by car to Ehrwald. Every day for six consecutive days we would travel from Eschenlohe Germany to Ehrwald Austria. Ehrwalder Alm Ski resort is twice the size of Mont-Tremblant with twice as many xc ski trails. And wide, well groomed trails. More than enough snow. 2 meters!! But we also visited a monastery, museum and castles in Germany. These are the small German towns we visited in Bavaria…Ettal, Murnau, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Schwangau. Hopefully, the ski event will never be cancelled again due to lack of snow or whatever other reason… Please see their website.
Marcialonga, Italy. January 31st 2016
Italy’s biggest cross country ski race. It has the ambiance, scenery and competiveness of “Le Tour de France”. Marc, Annie and I enjoyed racing Marcialonga 2014, but 2016 was even more fun! Why? It was way more fun because we skied it as a fun challenge and not race. For once we tested our fitness without having to actually race. And our recompense was admiring the majestic Dolomites and saluting the numerous emotional Italian spectators along the way.
Here is Phil's relay team at the Winter World Games in Quebec City in February 2015. Congratulations on their bronze medal in the 5km x 4 relay race !
Voici l'équipe de relais de Phil aux Jeux Mondiaux d'Hiver des Maîtres à Québec au mois de février 2015. Félicitations sur leur médaille de bronze au 5km x 4 !
Phil participa encore une fois cette année aux pretigieuses course Worldloppet de la Marcialonga (en Italie) ainsi que la Dolomitenauf (en Autriche). Voici quelques photos.
