40+ snowshoe rankings

Here are my pre-season picks for the top New England masters (40+) snowshoe racers.  I have no idea who is racing this year and who is healthy...time will tell.

1. Tim Van Orden – finished as top master in 11 of the 13 races he ran last year including two overall victories. Tim had one second place master finish (Turner trail) and finished fourth at snowshoe nationals.

2. Sean Snow – Got better as the season went on. Capped off the last year with an impressive second place finish at the snowshoe nationals. Ran six races last season. Finished 3rd master in the GS series.

3. Dave Dunham – Injured from Sidehiller on, but still managed to run some snowshoe races. Gave Tim VO his only loss in WMAC action at Turner trail and managed a top masters spot at the NH championship. Ran 10 races last season. Finished second master in the WMAC series.

4. Steve Wolfe – Was competitive in both the WMAC and NH series. Ran 11 races last season. Top master in the Granite state series.

5. David Principe – Had a solid season capped off with a second place masters finish at the NH championships and a fine fifth place at nationals. Finished 2nd master in the GS series.

6. Chris Dunn – Not only ran well all season, finishing six races, but also directed several races and was the head honcho behind the Granite State Series and created the new Northeast Snowshoe Federation for 2011.

Me, kicking it in at Northfield last year
