Results: Makara Peak Rally 07

Postby psychavoc on Sun 9/Dec/07 8:37pm

The Annual Makara Peak Rally was held today at Makara Peak MTB Park, Karori, Wellington. The Makara Peak Rally is an event run by the Makara Peak Supporters as a fundraiser for track development, building, and maintenance at Makara Peak. Today's Makara Peak Rally saw 27 teams of two competing in the Creek to Peak Relay in the morning, and 9 duos and 59 solos entering the Tour de Peak in the afternoon. Temperatures reached a very hot and humid 27 degrees today with very little wind, which made the climbs up the hill rather challenging, and the drinks station at Pylon 16 very popular!

Attached are the provisional results (in .xls format) =} [CLICK HERE] to download the results. NOTE: RESULTS ARE NOW ADJUSTED FOR STAGGERED START TIMES IN THE TOUR.

A huge thanks to Ben Wilde (President, Makara Peak Supporters) for organising the event, John Randal (Secretary, MPS) for rounding up the sponsors, and all the volunteers and marshalls for helping out on the day! THANKS! :)

Hi guys,
it is likely that the staggered start hasn't been built into the Tour de Peak times yet, but we're on it ;)

I remember seeing a couple of photgraphers through the beads of sweet. Are the photograps been uploaded anywhere?
