Wasn't there an award for perserverence ? True Grit award I thought...Is there a list of those ?
Not sure if this has been brought up in the thread. Last night searching through Amazon video I came across the movie The Winnipeg Run. It's about a troubled Vietnam vet returning home and he rides the route from Winnipeg to St. Paul. It looks like a cheesy TV movie but it has some cool old oval racing video and some good shots of him running the the route on a Arctic cat possibly a sno-pro?. Edgar Heteen was the technical director
Wow, thanks for that link. Great stories from the Matejka brothers. Nice job local snow club for hosting such an event.I have searched online for video from this 1979 race but have never found a thing.Maybe somebody out there has film to share.
