Silva DuO #1 at Ballarat

Monday, 11 February 2013

Carolyn, Greg, Tim, Peter, Bruce, Anne, Geoff, Angus and Suzanne.

A good sized contingent of Bayside Kangaroos members attended the first DuO event held on Sunday 27 January using the "Sparrow Ground" and "Canadian North" maps at Ballarat. The race format was run/ride/run with competitors in solo, pairs and relay or ride-only categories. The race began in a heavy mist, which ensured wet feet for all and a scramble for map bags, but finished in bright sunshine.

In the long race, Angus Robinson was 1st in Juniors and 4th overall, Tim Hatley was 1st in Senior Men, Scott Gavens 5th in Open Men, Kate Gavens 3rd in Open Female and Anne and Geoff Robinson were 2nd in the relay. Interestingly, Geoff's quick ride leg would have earnt him 1st in the ride-only if he had been in that category. Andrew Rowan won the ride-only and Heather Leslie was 3rd.

In the short race, Bruce Paterson was 1st overall, with John Gavans 3rd and Greg Tamblyn 4th, while Carolyn and Peter Cusworth took out the pairs. Suzanne O'Callaghan was 1st in the ride-only.

The sponsors Silva and Bikecorp provided some nice prizes for the winners.

Apologies to any members I might have overlooked.
