Our blue-ribbon State Champs were held this weekend in Bendigo. They were preceded by a sprint race on Saturday, which was great fun and an excellent warmup for the main event. The forest was fast and open with numerous tracks, resulting in some swift finish times. Eight of the 14 competing DROC members made it onto the podium –
First: Sarah Davies and Asha Steer (both performing very well in the Vic Schools Team selection trial)
Second: Janine Steer, Martin Steer (only 20 seconds off first), Peter Yeates and Debbie Dodd
Third: Lanita Steer (running “up” in W21) and Ian Davies
Honorable mentions: Ian Dodd and Peter Dalwood were both edged into fourth. Peter Hobbs was a very creditable 5th in a strong M21 field.
