SUCO sled dogs won two silver medals at the BSSF British championships held at Ford estate Northumberland on 26-27th March 2022.
On a technical but very enjoyable course, for both dogs and athletes, we ran 2 teams. Gonzo was in the masters bikejor and was lying in silver medal position after run 1, 3 tenths of a second down. Even though he ran 9 seconds quicker on day 2, we stayed in a very credible silver medal position. Dexter was running in the 1 dog scooter and, after a scare with a blowout puncture walking to the start and a quick borrow of a scooter, he ran really well to take second after day one. He ran a quicker time on day 2 to hold onto the silver medal position.
Gonzo on the bike on his 5th Birthday and Dexter on the scooter they ran really well on both days. Huge thanks to CSJ for your amazing continued support. We are so proud of the dogs fuelled by CSJPERF30, thanks to all the team.
