Sprint Championship – Results, Splits & Photos

_DSC8378

The Sprint event started early on Saturday morning. The weather was cool and breezy but picked up as the day went on.

Riders headed off from Fisherman’s Beach along the coastal paths and open land to the compulsory road crossing. Then up through a creek valley with paths and bridges before a fast leg though streets to Taylor Park where riders had many controls to visit as they criss crossed throughout the parkland before the finish near the rotunda.

In the Elite field Chris Firman (Qld) continued his good sprint form from this year’s World Champs to win by just over 2 minutes from Steven Cusworth (Vic) making a return to MTBO for the first time in several years. The experienced Alex Randall (Vic) completed the men’s podium.

Marquita Gelderman from New Zealand had a good win over Carolyn Jackson by just under 2 minutes with another Kiwi, Rachel Drew in third.

Thanks to Yarra Valley Orienteers for organising.
