World Solo MTB Done & Dusted

18th Oct 2006

Well it's all over now. After 24 hours of humid weather competitors in the World of Adrenalin 24 hour World Solo Championship have finished and the results are great from an Aussie perspective.

After a lead of 45 mins, Trev had a real battle to retain his 3rd position in the last few hours when a rider in 5th position suddenly began reeling him in by 30 mins per lap. Panic stations were hit as we readied Trev for a hard few last laps to keep his position. The sudden & impossible loss of 3rd place had me heading over to officials to firmly request a timing check. Lap times for this rider dropped from 1 hr 30 mins, to 59 mins and then down to 17 mins. What the? Officals were sceptical at first & the investigation took some time. Poor Trev was forced to begin another lap on the offchance it would be needed. Gladly the issue was resolved & Trev's 3rd place was reinstated. We very happily met him further down the course to pull him off. Trev immediately laid down on the grass & almost wept like a baby. This was one very exhausted man who was ecstatic with his 3rd place!

Other battles were fought out on the course during this event. With Sue Haywood & Rebecca Rush comfortably in 1st & 2nd place, Katrin van der Spiegel fought valiantly and at one stage was in 3rd place but this was taken off her in the last few hours.

Craig Gordon blasted 6 times winner, Chris Eatough's hopes out of the water and held a 2 lap lead on Chris by race finish. Unfortunately the effort had paid it's toll on Craig & he was carried away from the pre-ceremony by his support crew & transported to hospital for IV rehydration.

In the uproar of the last hour's uproar with Trev's category, I missed some final standings for the Aussies & have included only those I know:
  • Craig Gordon - 1st Male Elite
  • Craig Peacock - 1st Male 45-49
  • Trevor Kloeden - 3rd Male 50-54
