Friday Night Biathlon Series 2007/2008 - Event 2 - November 16th

Another good field of 14 (7 guys, 7 girls) showed up on a lovely Friday evening for race 2 of the summer. We had 3 first timers who all went of scratch. It later come out that one of them, Sarah Greenwood, had come 2nd outright at the Sri Chinmoy Classic a few weeks earlier, which was no surprise given she smashed everyone in the pool with a 7:18. She followed that up with a good 17:46 run despite running several hundred metres extra. She of course took out the female win with a total of 25:04. In the mens it was the usual story of Adrian and Steve H leading the swim times and then Steve steamrolling everyone on the run.

Series Results: 9 of the 14 competitors this week had a handicap from round 1 and all beat it. Cath Hume was over 22% better so got the 30 points, Dan, Tony and Steve all beat their handicaps by around 6%, and that is the early top 4 in the points score. Andrew J and Adrian raced for the first time this season so got 5 points and an initial handicap. Remember, no points or handicaps for non-members. Here is the points score.

Well done to everyone, especially our first timers Sarah G, Hayley and Karla. Thanks to all the volunteers for helping out with timing, marshalling and keeping everyone safe out on the run course. Here are the results.

Females Sarah G (7:18) Sarah G (17:46) Sarah G (25:04)
Males Adrian (7:56) Steve H (14:59) Steve H (23:14)
