Race St Vith 2009

On Feb 7-8 2009 we attended the famous mushing Race in Rodt, St-Vith (BE). This race is always well organized by the friendly Snow Hook Team: http://www.snowhookteam.be/
Unfortunately this year we were very lucky with the weather conditions. Not enough snow to run with the sled. And a very humid weather on Saturday. The trail was a bit dangerous and the organization decided to cancel the category bike.
So Gwen's decided to run with 4 dogs (Coco, Ethna, Yekona & Charko) as well... We are proud of them as they did a good time even if Ethna and Coco who were leading aren't really great with directions ;) However it was Coco first race and she was great member of the team.
Gijs also participated with his 4 Alaskan malamutes and finished 3rd in the category C2.
During the night from Saturday to Sunday the temperature dropped down and the next morning the trail was even more dangarous. So the organization decided to cancel the race.
And we still enjoyed a nice Sunday in Rodt :)

Some pics to come asap...
