Jackson takes hat-trick at Australian MTBO Championships

Victoria’s World Champion Adrian Jackson has won the Australian Championships in Sprint, Middle and Long Distance. QLD local Andrew Fellows was 2nd in all 3 races. Fellows is relatively new to Orienteering, but has a strong cycling background, winning his 25-29yrs age class at the recent 2008 World 24hr MTB Championships in Canada. Victoria’s Dion Keech was a consistent 3rd place in all races.

In the Women’s elite class, NZ’s Marquita Gelderman showed the form that saw her standing on the podium at the World MTBO Champs in Poland. She won the Sprint and Long Distance titles, while Australian rep Thor Egerton won the Middle Distance race.

In the junior classes, strong performances from ACT’s Luke Poland saw him win the M20 class in all races, and Newcastle’s Alex Massey won both the Sprint and Middle Distance races.
