The first Alberta Cup race of the season is in the books. We had a quite the lineup.... Forerunning were Alysia Rissling and her all woman 4man sled, along with one of Canada's Para Bobsleigh athletes Lonnie Bissonnette in a monobob. Winning this first race was Dutch Canadian Ivo de Bruin. Ivo was an Alberta Team member last season and now will be going on to slide for Holland. Alberta pilots Remi Kleszcznyski (Oscar Wronski on brakes) and Ryan Taal (Igor Brink on brakes) were second and third respectively. We also had one of our new female pilots, Melissa Lowe with brakeman Liz Janze, fresh out of driving school the previous week, competing in her first race. Thanks again to all of our officials, without whom, we could not run our races.
