Steph continues to fly - Zoo Lake

Stephanie dominated the ladies course at Zoo Lake, winning by over 2 minutes. Salome also had a good run finishing 3rd.

Brad had a great result on the mens course finishing only 25 seconds behind manager Alex. Coach Nic also had a good result finishing 4th. Check out his GPS track and analysis here.

The Sprint Finish Competition was introduced at Zoo Lake. This time the aim was to run the fastest splits for the last 2 controls. Salome and Nico were the chocolate winners! Thanks to everyone who entered. And don't worry, we'll make sure that the fast people don't always win:-)

Brescia House

The rain stayed away on the 14th of February and so the third short course event was very enjoyable. Once again the juniors did well. Steph came 2nd, Salome was 3rd, Sarah came 4th, Zoe finished 6th and Jess Lund was 7th. On the men's course Brad would have finished 3rd, Michael was 6th and J.P finished 13th. Here's a picture from the RACO website that Pat took of all the junior girls:
Thanks to everyone for supporting the tuck shop and raffles.

Junior Squad Training

The juniors had their first squad training at Golden Harvest on Saturday, the 6th of February. Coach Nic organized some fun exercises. We started with the usual line course to get into the map. Next we had to transfer a course from a Danish map to a blank one which was 10m away. The 2.5m intricate contour detail made it tricky. The last exercise was interval O'. We were paired up and raced our partner to the finish of each interval. Here's the map for the line course and intervals:
Thanks to Nic and Alex for organizing the session and thanks to the seniors who helped out.

Short Course 2 - WEC

The juniors had another good showing on Sunday. The fast area suited speedy Steph who won the womens course for the second week in a row. She beat Tania by over a minute. Salome had another good run to take third place and Sarah managed 5th.

The mens results were close at the top of the board. Bradley was less than 30 seconds behind winner Garry. Coach Nic and Mike were 2 seconds apart in 4th and 5th place respectively.

Next weekend is MTB-O at Groenkloof and on the 14th of Feb we head to Brescia House. See everyone there!
