Torrential rain for race day
It had been a week of no-show rain but finally, on TriSport Taupo¯ race day, the torrential rain came. Fortunately it didn’t seem to deter racers.
Racing began at 6pm at AC Baths with a short run loop towards the golf course followed by the Broadlands/View Rd ride loop and finishing with another short run from the transition. It all got a bit wet but the volunteers egged on competitors to completion.
Top spots were taken in the long course by Cameron Paul, Clark Ellice, Corey LeCouteur and Hannah Howell.
Short course winners were Marcel Abele, Kasper Lenoir and Joseph Brown along with Sheree Gage, Debi Woodward and Aniek Lenoir. Teams were won by Team Woodward-Raven followed by Team 3 Generations (E, S and T McMahon). The club thanked Top Gear cycles for spot prizes and the volunteers.
Next week TriSport Taupo¯ races from Craters Carpark at 6pm. Find out more at TriSport Taupo¯’s Facebook page.
