This past weekend, Canadian skaters took part in events including Germany’s Gross Gerau International Criterium and Ottawa’s Minto Run For Reach.
Harriston’s Paisley Perrie took on a very fast and talented international field at the Gross Gerau International Criterium in Germany. The race, which attracts over 700 top competitors from all over the world, serves as an early season test for athletes of all levels.
Alex Perrie brough his refereeing experience and knowledge to the event, acting as an official referee in the event. He has been head-referee for the Canadian and Ontario championships on a number of occasions. [Click here for results]
