For the second year in a row, Alex Nemethy of Smithers was the first solo racer out of the pool for the PG Iceman.
“It’s a tough one, there’s some good competitors out there,” Nemethy said after the race.
“I think it was a closer race this year than last year, some guys were on me in the ski, and made me work for it, a lot of fun.”
Nemethy finished with a time of 1:49:03.6.
In last year’s race, Nemethy won with a time of 1:40:17.2.
2023’s race did not include a skate because of warm conditions.
