Matt Crane (GBR) and Grace Elson (Tas) won today’s National League race in SA, while the Victorian Nuggets are leading the men’s and womens National League.
Elson won another tight race from Kathryn Ewels (Vic), with Kirsten Fairfax (Vic) recording her best race of the season so far to some third. Yesterday’s Middle Distance champion, Anna Sheldon (Qld) was 4th. Meanwhile, Bridget Anderson (Qld) backed up from yesterday’s win to take out the junior women’s race.
Crane was nearly as dominating today as he was yesterday, with junior Simon Uppill (SA) recording another second placing and veteran Eric Morris (NSW) third. Bryan Keely won the junior men’s race.
The National League looks like being a good contest this year, with Victoria leading both the men’s and women’s pointscore from the Southern Arrows. Last years champions, the Canberrra Cockatoos are in the wooden spoon position in both divisions. The National League has a short hiatus until the WOC trials to be held in Victoria in 3 weeks time.
