Tor­ren­tial rain for race day

Taupo & Turangi Weekender - - News -

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.
