Sprint Into Spring Race 2, Ruffey Lake

Saturday, 25 October 2014

The records keep tumbling, as more and more people are discovering how much fun Sprint racing is.  Today’s race strategy built on last week’s skills, with another open park, and numerous distinctive trees, plus tracks and bridges, with the added physical challenge of the hills.  The first leg brought a number of people unstuck, emphasising the need for a calm, focused approach right out of the gate. 

Results and Winsplits

Stay tuned to see if the Jerseys have changed hands!  The Race Wrap, Photos, and Jersey Points are all coming soon.

We take a break over Cup weekend, then it’s back to old favourite Latrobe University on November 8, in Bundoora.  This will be quite a contrast – the terrain is a large, complex campus with many buildings, gardens, water features and other man made objects.  So many hidden nooks and crannies to place controls!  Pre-enter on Eventor by Wednesday November 5, for discounted entry, or enter on the day at Registration, from 1.30pm.

Stick around after the race for more great training tips from our Danish experts. Today's training tips will be posted on Eventor soon.
