one of the worst COCs I’ve ever been to
Who was the top 3 in M/F21?
I think I was in M16, all I remember was the nettles and nettles.
Forest won M18 which was a big deal.
Also, for that Relay, Neil Evans out sprinted everyone off the start line and then tripped and face planted in the arena, which many enjoyed.
I remember Neil’s fall. As bad as that COCs in Ottawa was there was a lot more depth back then. But we have SI now so all is good. ;-)
Mark Adams won his only COC title that year. He was going to quit but stuck it out. If Mark considered quitting and he grew up racing and training in the Laurentians then you know it was bad. I think i was 2nd but i’ve tired to erase as many memories of that nightmare course and woods.
Mark would have won a lot more COC titles if our nationals were in the fall. he has heat issues but dominated spring and fall racing in the late 80’s and early 90’s.
