Getting 'Sirius' about Rallying

MOMAR Squamish Adventure Race 2007

Gord and Sirius team member in training Onur Tezcan completed their first adventure race last weekend. The MOMAR course was a gruelling seven hour journey involving mountain biking, treking, navigation and a rappel. Squamish is well known for it’s steep ascent and descent trails; the main hike ‘stairway to heaven’ was the biggest challenge of the race. Although the elite racers completed the course in just over four hours, it was a big accomplishment for the Sirius team to finish the racecourse, as they were very undertrained for the event. Onur probably had no idea what he was getting into but both he and Gord are looking forward to giving adventure racing another try. The Sirius team plans to get out on the Squamish racecourse again as part of regular training.

Jennifer assumed a volunteer role at the race as a result of her injury, and got some good photos of the boys in action. As a volunteer she watched the teams come through an important checkpoint and learned a lot about transitions and race procedure that will be very useful in future events. Her clavicle is still troublesome and will need at least another few weeks to heal, but more adventure races are being planned for the Sirius team, hopefully later in the summer!
