Tremendous day Saturday for Maya MacIsaac-Jones.
The Rocky Mountain Racers Ski Team up and coming star earned her first senior win on NorAm Cup when she took the sr women free sprint in Sovereign Lake, ahead of teammate Andrea Dupont and CNEPH’s Marie Corriveau, also impressive as she is still a junior.
Here are Mayas’ thoughts after the race.
“After having a tough sprint on Tuesday, I was really happy to be able to pull it together both physically and mentally for today’s race.
«Racing in Senior heats is a completely different ball game than Junior heats, because you have to go at max effort in every heat to advance. Since we have such a strong group of women in Canada right now, it made today very exciting!
«One of the best parts of the day was being able to race the heats with so many of my teammates and sharing the podium with Andrea! My teammates have been extremely supportive of me this past week, especially after Tuesday’s race, and I think that played a huge part in helping me have a positive mental outlook today.»
There will be a 10 km skate race on Sunday.
Adrenaline will be flowing.
