Blue Mountains – Results & Photos23rd November 2021
That’s a wrap on the final Adventure Race event for 2021! We hope you had a blast and enjoyed the adventurous course in the beautiful Blue Mountains last weekend.
The Classic course teams tackled the mighty Glenbrook Gorge this year and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of this unique section of the course. The Novice teams didn’t miss out either, with both Novice and Classic teams flying down the exciting single track on the mountain bike leg. The weather even behaved for the Saturday event as well, the rain holding off until after the teams had successfully conquered the course.
First place overall and first placed Mixed Team was TMC Extreme Mountain Fusion Athletes (Kirsty Lowe & Michael Vanos) who just pipped The Moosers (Mitchell Isaacs & Chantal Bronkhorst) by less than two minutes. The decision to go for the bonus checkpoint proved the right call for these two teams and they were the quickest teams overall. The Mixed podium was rounded out by Married Just (Brooke & Bohdan Laforest)
In the Female category on the Classic Course it was Shredded Wheat (Eleanor Dalton & Josephine Barlow) in first place with Fueled by Coffee (Emma Inglis & Sandi Strickland) in 2nd and Forty & Fabulous (Ashlee Donnelly & Heidi Lindahl) in 3rd.
Meanwhile the 3rd Male team home was Team Tortoise (Andrew & James Kidner) and The Battlers (Matt Jenkins & Scott Campbell) in 2nd. First Male team home was Mad Mex Adventure (Bastien Missud & Thomas Wetula) in under 3 hours out on course.
Congratulations to those teams and also to all the teams, both Classic & Novice, who worked hard and pulled together to finish the course which is not a achievement to be sneezed at.
A very special shout out also goes to our hard working volunteers and crew who volunteered their time, lent a hand and helped make the event happen. We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you!
