The champion

Ahuya Sinnupa May, racing with Team 13 in this year’s Nunavut Sno-Challenge, hoists a trophy above his head to celebrate his win on Saturday, April 27. The snowmobile race runs a 320-kilometre course to Kimmirut and back from Iqaluit, and is hosted by Toonik Tyme and the Iqaluit Racing Association. May, who comes from Kuujjuaq, finished with a time of two hours, 15 minutes and 13 seconds. He won $16,000 and two plane tickets. This year, there were 22 racers, each having a gasman to help them in the race. (Photo courtesy of Kelli McLarty)
