Northern Illinois Nordic's Limestone Loppet Results

by Bob Richards
November 5, 2006

Rising temperatures after a freeze the night before and the resulting thawing limestone in some open areas made for slow conditions in spots on the Herrick Lake Trail on Nov. 4. But 26 Illinois "Limestone Cowboys" toughed it out in what could be compared to slow snow conditions in four or five places to complete the course, which is just under 9 kilometers in length. Most of the course, swept clean by Northern Illinois Nordic volunteers, was dry and very fast for the off-road wheelers. Jukka Lyly Yrsanainen of Elk Grove Village, a native of Finland, was first male. Elizabeth Goodspeed of Glenview, IL, was first woman. Results follow.

Women's winner Elizabeth Goodspeed
