A big contingent of AWOCers made the trek up the Hume to Livingstone National Park to compete against the WaggaRoos. This event was originally scheduled for late March but extreme heat (39°C) caused it to be postponed until now. The temperature may not have been the same (frostbite being more likely than heatstroke) but AWOC was HOT, HOT, HOT!!!
This was a home event for the WaggaRoos but you wouldn’t have known it – AWOC had an excellent turn out and dominated the day.
Peter Mousley, Becky George and Nick Mousley swept the podium positions for AWOC on Long Hard, with Matt Flower and Russell Blatchford making it an AWOC top 5!
WaggaRoos claimed first on Short Hard but Liz Wood and Rob Simmons completed the podium for AWOC.
The best individual result of the day came on the Moderate course: Gibb Willinck, a junior participating in our training sessions, won!!! It was an awesome result and the way Gibb worked around the course at a good, steady pace was fantastic. Well done Gibb! Norm McCann grabbed second while Indiana Flower with mum Emma missed a podium spot by just one minute.
Hugh Cameron put his replacement hip to good use to claim third on the Easy course.
The day was topped off with celebratory drinks and food while we thawed out at the Gerogery Hotel on the way home – a great day out!
