Whats the deal with having 3 pretty mint races on one weekend?
Just waiting for school to start back, only another 7 weeks.

Was the Goat as Windy and Haily as well?

Highly recommend Kauri run for anyone next year, bloody tough but awesome course.

Also a bit dazed as to why you would have 2 races against each other on same weekend(fair enough if one in SI and one NI)

Good to see Rebecca beating Tania - a bit of competition amongst our elite women!

The Goat had slightly better weather - bit cold and windy but no rain, which was just as well because the course was really technical and could have gotten a bit dangerous in places if the weather was worse...wicked course though, hopefully they'll be on different weekends next year so we can do both!

Presumably the Kepler was the shortened in and back flat version seeing Phil was about 30 minutes faster than the record? He's good but not that good and I don't think Martin's suddenly become 20 minutes faster. Nor do I think Colin Rolfe could beat Chris if there was a hill involved - I'm surprised he did even so. Did you die Chris?

Show Profile  Jamie Posted: 7 December 2004, 2:47 AM  
Rumour has it Chris got dared to run without moving his arms for the entire race ;-)

The course was up to Luxmore and back then to Moturau and back.

Just luring Phil into a false sense of security for next year, when hopefully they run the full course.
Also, I don't think I'd quite recovered properly from the Wednesday races, and was asleep for half of the race after having to get up at 4:30am. I also lost about 5min from having to stop to go to the toliet 3 times during the race. However, no excuses, I'll just have to get better for next year.

Chris probably lost another 5-10 mins dragging that tractor tyre behind him.

Show Profile  The Clem Posted: 7 December 2004, 6:21 AM  
Darren had a wicked race. Callum Harland is the current New Zealand Mountain running champ. They were competing for a trophy in memory of Callum's brother who died earlier this year. So no matter how many times Darren attacked him, Callum was pretty much giving it all from the start. Reb had a awesome run as well and Tania got hit by the mountain. It kind of jumped out and hit her with 1km to go. She's still cramping. She's also thinking about a new approach to mountain racing, i.e. actually eating ( and taking supplements) and not saying things to Reb like " it's not that far!".
