    We ran in to Active Steve (@activesteve) at the Gatineau Loppet after a bitterly cold ski race. He gave us his impressions of FRUIT2 and FRUIT3 and how they held up in the cold. FRUIT2 energy fruit bars were the official feed station nutrition on course at the 2015 Gatineau Loppet... find out why!

      This one is a bit long, when i first started making videos. But hopefully it tells the story of the 2006 Loppet, almost 10 years ago.

      • 2015 City of Lakes Loppet Ski Festival Recap


        from Spruce Video Productions / Added

        Loppet Festival Recap This article was posted on Monday, February 2nd, 2015 This was not your ordinary Loppet Weekend! The venues changed. The times changed. The distances changed. The difficulty level changed. The Comcast Luminary Loppet even changed from a primarily skiing event to a walking-only event. But one thing remained the same: the community spirit that makes the City of Lakes Loppet great. Volunteers and staff turned on a dime. Participants rolled with the changes. And in the end the community spirit more than saved the weekend; it might have made the 2015 Loppet weekend among the best ever. Many events sold out and/or had record attendance. The Comcast Luminary Loppet actually sold out . . . twice – once when it was going to be primarily a skiing course and again after it was converted to a walking-only course. The Captain Ken’s Kubb Tournament sold out. The Penn Cycle Fat Tire Loppet sold out. And the Finn Sisu Sprints, Puoli Loppets and Minne-Loppet saw record attendance! Produced by Seth McGaha and courtesy of the Loppet Foundation. More info at Loppet.org

                Un froid intense m'assaille. J'attends. Quoi? Je me le demande. En fait, je le sais, mais je me demande pourquoi. Pourquoi braver cette température si peu clémente pour voir défiler devant le verre de mon objectif ses adeptes de la performance? Je le savais. Là, je ne sais plus. Mon cerveau ne fonctionne qu'au ralenti. Je ne suis pas seul. Il y a autour de moi un rassemblement de fous qui, eux aussi, ont braver le blizzard pour admirer, encourager, aider et servir. Enfin, j'espère qu'ils se souviennent du pourquoi. Ils sourient. Ils crient. Ils tapent de leurs mains emmitainées. La vapeur qui s'échappe de leur bouche exhibe leur vitalité. Tiens, les voilà qui arrivent. Coup de bâtons. Souffle. Coup de ski. Souffle. Coup de bâtons. Souffle. Ça semble interminable. Vont-ils se rendre? L'attente est infinie. Je souffre presque. Presque autant qu'eux. Ils sont partis depuis si longtemps que certains ont gelés. Ils sont bonhommes de glace. Frigorifiés. Je les plains. Mes pieds qui, gelés, ne me font soudainement plus mal. Je pense à ces athlètes. J'ai envie de leur crier: POURQUOI? Mais je me retiens. J'admire l'homme et la femme devant moi. Ils sont beaux. Ils ont réussi. Ils ont gagné. Peu importe leur position. Bravo! Le 35e Loppet de Gatineau présenté les 16-17 février 2013.

                  This is the inaugural Fat Tire Loppet as part of the City of Lakes Loppet weekend. It was supposed to run a similar course to the ski race but someone complained two days before the race and they had to move it to the lakes. It was then supposed to be three laps but once we got to the start they shortened it to two laps. No sure why but it was still a blast. Hopefully next year we'll get to run the full course. Thanks to all of the volunteers for still making this event possible.

                      This is a time-lapse I took of the 2012 City of Lakes Luminary Loppet held at Theordore Wirth Park in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Luminary Loppet was a walk, open to the public, along the race trail which was lit by spectacular ice sculptures with candles inside. The footage show the participants as they walk thru parts of the course. http://www.cityoflakesloppet.com/ This was shot on a Nikon D5100 hiding in a tripod in the woods.
