Island Cup #1

Post by trevor » Sun Mar 17, 2013 7:48 pm

The first race of the season saw sunny skies and mucky trails today at Hartland, Victoria. I raced the intermediate men category and went out too hard. The course if front-loaded with some short steep climbing and a few slightly technical ascents. I was in the front group form the start and maintained this through the first lap. The second saw more of the same but by the 3rd I was not riding clean. I ended up finishing 9th with Wheeler Ron Grant hitting the podium in 3rd - congrats buddy! Tom Skinner raced strong and finished 2nd in the expert men field with Scotty Martin coming in 5th. Well done guys. The course was not big on rest and was pretty unforgiving. The organizers from Pro City did a fantastic job from flagging the course to racer pack pick-up to the awards ceremony.
Next up is Hammerfest next Sunday in Parksville. Any takers?
