Hello Ski chasers
On Saturday 26th August the final Skike Australia Victorian Ski Chase event was held at Falls Creek, the Kangaroo Hoppet/Birkebeinere/Joey Hoppet. Thanks to the amazing team who put on this grand event.
It was great to have the full distance in all events, despite issues with snow accumulation in many places. We were lucky with the weather too given the wild winter we experienced, with great visibility and only gale force winds to contend with.
- Registrations close this Sunday (4thSeptember), 6 pm.
- The Skike grand prize, Rochford winery draw prizes, and cash prizes will be drawn next Wednesday (7thSeptember).
- Please check that we have recorded your results correctly (remember only your best two Falls Creek results earn points).
- Please double check that we correctly recorded your Hoppet/Birkie/Joey place. Based on previous years we are bound to have missed some or made errors (as there were about 1000 names to be sifted through).
Click [HERE] for Interim Results, which might change if corrections are to be made or if there are last minute registrations.
As the results currently stand it looks like Amy Beanland has won the women’s competition, ahead of Jackie Kildea, Penny Grose, Briana Oldis and Lily Boland. In the men’s competition Ben Derrick has finished on top, ahead of Kevin Tory, Ian Franzke, Tommi Silvester and Rod Clutterbuck.
Well done to everyone who took part. Stay tuned for the grand prize draws.
If you know someone who has raced in any of the events, and is not listed in the results, let them know they have until Sunday 6 pm to register, and be eligible for the draw prizes v07Plus Skikes, $100 Rochford wines gift vouchers, and possibly the cash prizes if under 23.
