Skike Australia Victorian Ski Chase – Events 3 and 4

This weekend the third and fourth of the Skike Australia Victorian Ski Chase events, the Snow, Trek & Travel High Plains Tour, and the YMCA Howmans Gap Victorian Relay Championships took place.  Many thanks to the Howmans Gap Allstars for all their hard work putting on another great weekend of races.

After a wet week we were lucky to get an overnight freeze, and some great racing conditions for Saturday, with over 100 participants.  On Sunday the weather turned, and only a small number of teams braved the fog and light rain.

The interim results can be found here, Ski Chase Interim Results 13July2016_men Ski Chase Interim Results 13July2016_women, which include only those people who had registered by Sunday 10th of July.  More names will be added to the results as additional people register.

Note, all participants in the relays earned 50 points.  However, only the best two Falls Creek events count in the points tally.

In the women’s competition Kat Paul has taken first place, with Ann Bellingham only two points behind in second place, and Lily Boland in third.  Briana Oldis and Ella Jackson have dropped a few places to 4th and 5th place.  In the Men’s competition there has been no change in the top two places with Kevin Tory and Will Middlemiss still in 1st and 2nd.  Nick Montgomery has jumped to 3rd, Mark Pollock is holding 4th, and by registering during the week Bob Cranage has taken over 5th place from Rod Clutterbuck.

The next event is the Bullfight Charge at Lake Mountain on Sunday 24 July.  Race start 11am, 8/3.5 km (Freestyle technique).  If you are pondering which distance to ski, remember the longer distances earn more points.
