It’s all still up in the air with four of the five categories still ripe for the picking in the final round in Christchurch on August 13th!
In an event characterised by some fantastic routesetting, Cirrus Tan and Daniel Krippner took podium honours to leap into contention in the title race. Victoria Alexander and Lans Hansen still top the table but since the series score is your top three events they’ll have to put in strong showings to maintain that lead. Sarah Hay, Emma Lovegrove, Sam Munday and Craig Houston are all still in the running. It’s going to be the closest series final ever!
The U18 Female category is too close to call with Lucy, Lea, Jasmine and Isabella all able to take the series, and while Sam has a strong hold on the U18 Male, Oliver and Tom are close on his heels. Only the Masters is wrapped up with Mike Kumar’s two wins and a fourth putting him just out of reach of Stephan Brucher. Of course Mike is still expected to come down and prove his dominance in a traditionally staunch Master’s field in Castle Hill country…..
So, North Islanders, book your tickets to Christchurch now! This will be an event not to be missed. Take a couple of days off and head up to Flock while you’re at it eh.
A massive thanks is due to Sabrina Street and her team for running a fantastic Round 3 at the Extreme Edge in Panmure, and head forerunner Beast Kong. Full results are viewable online here.
