Orienteers were well represented at the pointy end of the fields in the Mountain Bike Crosscountry National Round No. 2 held last weekend in Hobart.
Adrian Jackson was an extremely close 6th in the elite men’s race, while Jo Williams was 13th in the women. Canberra’s Hamish Prosser was 2nd in the U17 class. Tasmanian orienteers, Tom Goddard and Marc Gluskie placed 7th and 10th respectively out of 21 competitors, in the U19 category. They were separated by less than a minute. Results can be viewed at theAustralian MTB website look under news. The national cross country championships will be held in Adelaide in February on the Eagle Park Quarry course.
