The Blizzard Masters gave it a good try, but could not duplicate last years 7th place finish for the Oakridge Environmental Worlds Masters 40 km Challenge.

They were one rider short of the necessary five to beat the age time standard.   Riders Pat Ferris, Roger St. Jean, Bob Andrews, and Sam Keats had a decent total of 26:42, minutes better than their personal age standards but lacked the qualifying fifth rider.  A few key riders were missing due to other commitments, injury or away.
