BRISTOL Aug. 1, 2018
A local dog-racing entrepreneur is pleased to announce that the longstanding Bristol Dryland Dog race has been recognized by two international governing bodies.
Denis Rozon, owner of Timberland Tours and the driving force behind the race, explained that the International Sled Dog Racing Association Inc. (ISDRA) had awarded his race the event of the year.
“The dryland, when I started in 2010, was the first in Canada,” he said. “Now there’s many races.”
“You have to be accredited, you have to be sanctioned, follow their rules,” he continued, explaining how the races are evaluated. “Also, the racers have to make a report, that’s really important too.”
