Skike Australia Victorian Ski Chase update

On Saturday 23rd August the final Skike Australia Victorian Ski Chase event was held at Falls Creek, the Kangaroo Hoppet/Birkebeinere/Joey Hoppet.  Thanks to the amazing team who put on this grand event.

What a great day it was too, sunny and warm with a light dry breeze that kept the softening snow from becoming too wet.

Important notice:

  • Registrations close soon. That’s right it’s not too late to be included in the great draw prizes.  Register here: http://tinyurl.com/victorianskichase
  • The Skike grand prize and cash prizes will be drawn at the Spring SXCV meeting.
  • The top 12 male and female point scorers aged 25 and under are eligible for the cash prizes.
  • Please check that we have recorded your results correctly (remember only your best two Falls Creek results earn points).
  • There has been some confusion between “Age” and “Age points”. They are only the same for 30 year olds.

Note, we still do not have the Ski de Femme participants included, and there may be late registrations, so there could be further changes.

In the women’s competition Zoe Beanland did manage to hold off the fast finishing Penny Grose to win the competition, with only 4 points separating 1st and 2nd.  Amy Beanland took the final podium positon, ahead of Hayley Adams in 4th and Belinda Phillips in 5th. In the men’s competiton Kevin Tory took out first place as expected. David Hood and Rod Clutterbuck finished strongly to move into 2nd and 3rd place respectably, knocking Len Budge back into 4th.  Greg Beanland moved up into 5th place, rounding out some great results from the Beanland family.

Congratulations Zoe and Kevin our Skike Australia Victorian Ski Chase winners.  Well done to everyone who took part.  With a bit of luck we’ll have prizes for overall competition winners next year.  Stay tuned for the grand prize draws.
