I skied yesterday's Birkie Classic (54 kilometers / 33 miles). I wore my GoPro camera and took timed photographs every 5 seconds while wearing a chest mount. I did not keep the camera turned on for the entire race (storage limitations), but did get some nice sections:
- Moment of Start
- Classic / Skate Split
- Birke Warriors and Inge
- Bi.ch Hill
- My Wipeout on the Last Downhill
In total you will find 55 pictures (edited down from 554). My apologies for some snow smudges in later photos. I fell twice during the race, and some powder got on the lens. I was too tired to notice!
Unfortunately my camera ran out of file storage space 500 meters short of the finish. Bummer!
This post is the first fron Nordic Ski Week which starts with the Birkie and ends with the Wabos Loppet (a 25 kilometer ski in the Lake Superior northern Ontario wilderness which starts with a one hour train ride to the small lumber village of Wabos).
