Skijoring Championship winners

Skijor USA is proud to announce the first annual National Skijoring
The first National Skijoring Championship stage was set. A record-braking snowfall in the Twin Cities guaranteed superb trail conditions which only increased interest and registrations in the weeks leading up to this race. The Twin Cities and The City of Lakes Loppet has been host to the world’s largest Skijoring events for the past five years. What better place to host the first National Skijoring Championship.
Registrations for all Loppet events exceeded 50% of last year’s numbers finally pushing registrations to make this the largest Nordic Ski festival in history. The Skijoring event also saw registration pushing well past last year’s record with the two day total exceeding 200 teams.
7K 2 Dog National Skijoring Championship,
Feb 5, 2011
Forty teams competed in the first ever 2 Dog National Skijoring Championship. This sprint event began with drama right at the start. John Thompson’s start was delayed due to a last second tangle. Once underway his ski pole became entangled in a line and he crashed. Meanwhile the field advanced down the trail. John regained the proper upright position and made his way through the 40 teams ahead of him to catch the lead pack that included Josh and Kate Tesch from Superior, Wisconsin and Rebecca Voris from Anchorage, Alaska. The top 4 teams sprinted to the finish with John Thompson and Rebecca Voris taking the Championship Titles. The top 4 teams finished within 3 seconds of each other making it a very exciting finish.
