What a great day of racing! The weather gods were so kind, what started out as a bit of a cool and bleak morning, turned into perfect conditions with hats, caps and sunscreen coming out in full force as the morning progressed. After a week of showers preceding race day, the wallaby track rode extremely well – no mud like 2016 – so everyone was able to take advantage with some fast times recorded.
The Strategic State Cross Triathlon Championships was a points race for national qualification to the Australian Age Group Team bound for the World Champs in Penticton in Canade later in 2017. For those who were seeking points, we hope you came away with a good result.
Thanks to all sponsors, supporters and volunteers with an additional special mention to the “Derwent Storm Dragon Boat” team for their help on the day.
