Anderson takes today’s honours in race for JWOC places

Bridget Anderson took out Saturday’s W17-20E stage of the Australian 3-Days near Dubbo. She took the lead on the long fourth leg and then held it to the end in a consistent run, 1.39 ahead of her fellow Queenslander Laurina Neumann. Rachel Effeney completed a Queensland trifecta in third place, and retains a narrow overall lead after winning Friday’s prologue, three seconds ahead of Neumann with Anderson less than a minute behind in third.

The other three elite classes were declared no-races because control stands for later days of the event were out in close proximity to identically-numbered controls from today, causing significant time loss to some competitors.

For other classes it was the first day of three. The closest race of the day was in W60, where only 11 seconds covered the first three: Jean O’Neill, Val Hodsdon and Ruth Goddard.
