Results for Round 2 of the Giant XCO Series are up!

Some great weather greeted the event this morning – sunny and 26.

The short course at Flinders Uni of 4.2 km seemed to have the desired effect and had people huffing and puffing across the line each lap.

A huge thank you to Betina Denton for picking up some BBQ goods on her way to the race. The sausages were enjoyed by all who indulged!

Thanks to the quiet achievers who helped out with some of the trail prep – David Clark, Billy Somerville, Geoff Luders and Jason Morrison.

Luke Hallam has provided some photos from the event as well – check them out here

Results are up on the results page and the Championship table has been updated.

Next race is on the 19th October at Cobbler Creek. Directions are available here and registration is open now – click here

Volunteers for Giant XCO Round 2

If you’re interested in volunteering on Sunday at Flinders Uni get in contact with Robyn via racevolunteers@ambc.asn.au.

Positions that will require filling will be:

  • BBQ Cooker – an esteemed position that comes with the gratitude of many a by-stander and racer alike. If you know how to flip a sausage, then this position is for you!
  • Registration verifier – be there to help guide pen to paper so competitiors can tick themselves off the start list! Hand out show bags to eligible people (aka: race packs). If you know how to direct people across a table, this job is for you!
  • Course packer-upper – Want to squeeze in one last lap before “adult life” comes slamming back to the fore-front of your mind? Want to do it a little under race threshhold pace? This is the job for you!

All volunteers get:

  • a free feed off the club BBQ – includes a soft drink;
  • free, transferable, race entry – get your friends involved! – and
  • last but not least, that warm fuzzy feeling that lending a hand is bound to give you – I hear it’s better than a warm fire on a drizzly Monday morning!
