Teams battle intense
Supersports had everyone talking once again with most unscathed after the infamous three-day battle.
The weekend, packed with highintensity sports, was another success, organiser Larry Sullivan said.
There was no need for understudies at the annual event.
‘‘There was one bike crash but she continued to compete.’’
A turnout of 36 teams was low compared to previous years but that didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits.
The dreaded Colson’s Hill run left most with mixed emotions. .
‘‘Colson’s Hill gets everyone talking, they hate it but they love it at the same time; it’s the one everyone loves to hate.’’
Even first-time entrants were not scared away.
‘‘We had a few out-of-town competitors and they were just blown away [over Supersports].’’
‘‘That sort of thing keeps you going even though it is a bit of work.’’
He said all the events ran smoothly and on time thanks to an endless list of volunteers.
‘‘There were too many people who put up their hands.’’
Just under 50 people helped out wherever they could.
Spectator numbers varied, as expected, but by Sunday the oval was packed with cars and people, he said.
Next year will mark the 30th jubilee and planning is already under way.
While there will be some secrets and changes for next year’s event, organisers did not want to stray from the format that had worked so well.
