SJUSJOEN, Norway -- Canadas Brian McKeever and guide Erik Carleton teamed up to win their first IPC World Cup race together in a 10-kilometre classic-ski race Sunday. McKeever, from Canmore, Alta., and Calgarys Carleton won three silver medals in as many races at the event, and won gold after finishing in 27 minutes 38.2 seconds in the mens visually impaired race. "We have been doing a lot of skate racing so it was nice to change the technique and get this one," said the 32-year-old McKeever. "I think we still have a little advantage over some of the guys in classic racing. The key to winning is to exploit your strengths and others weaknesses and we did that today." The track to the podium was anything but easy for the Canadian duo. Battling fatigue from a long period of racing in Europe and blowing conditions, McKeever relied heavily on the 33-year-old Carleton to find the quickest line to the finish. "Erik pulled really hard at the front in some pretty strong head winds," said McKeever. "He worked hard crossing between tracks to find the fastest line and did an awesome job for me today." The Canadians were sandwiched on the podium by two Russian teams. Nikolay Polukhin and Andrey Tokarev skied to the silver medal at 28:50.6, while Stanislav Chokhlaev and Maksim Pirogov were third with a time of 29:39.9. McKeever has become of the most accomplished para-nordic skiers in the world since being diagnosed with Stargaards disease in 1998. McKeever, along with his long-time guide and brother Robin, has won 10 medals including seven gold in his three trips to the Paralympics. Elsewhere, Colette Bourgonje of Saskatoon finished seventh in the womens five-kilometre sit-ski race. Mark Arendz of Springton, P.E.I., who won gold, silver and bronze medals in biathlon races at the event, finished 11th in the mens 10-kilometre standing class. Trumaine Johnson Jersey
