Australian 3 Days Prologue

The annual Australian 3 Days kicked off today in Dubbo with Jo Allison (ACT) and Julian Dent (NSW) the prologue victors.

Allison dominated the race, leading for most of the way, and finished with a 20 second victory. In second was Queensland junior Rachel Effeney, with  Victorian rising star Jasmine Neve 3rd. As a result, Victoria took out the womens Silva National Orienteering League race, ahead of Canberra Cockatoos and Queensland (with all of their pointscorers juniors!).

Julian Dent once again showed his class with a strong win, despite an injury-ravaged summer. Dent will only run one or two races this weekend, but despite the lack of training he kicked clear of David Shepherd (ACT) and Simon Uppill (SA). The Canberra Cockatoos won their third consecutive teams event to take a strong lead in the Silva National Orienteering League. NSW Stingers were 2nd, one second ahead of Southern Arrows.
