Peel Goes Back To Back!

Last years winner, Karl Peel overcame all challengers to his title, to take out consecutive Pete’s Track sprint events.

Race day dawned sunny and cool, however recent heavy rains led to slippery conditions in some areas of the track with times slightly down on last years race.

Peel needed to use all his skill and fitness levels to overcome his rivals and the gruelling 5km downhill run.

Keeping Karl honest was Adam Wiggins in 2nd place, with Brad Fisher rounding out the podium in 3rd place.

The women’s section was an enthralling tussle between Kirstin Curtis and Jacinta Nelsson with Kirstin taking 1st place and Jacinta 2nd. Melissa Cosson in 3rd place had them both looking over their shoulder.

Another great battle was taking place in the juniors, with less than 30 seconds separating the top three places. Coming out on top was Dru Berryman, closely followed by Liam Faltum in 2nd and Malte Adebahr taking 3rd place.
