After a sensational win in the Sprint event Aston Key has followed up a day later with an equally impressive 3rd place in the Long Distance event. Aston started at 12:46 (local time), 114th in a field of 170, which meant that the M20 competitors were spread out from 9:00am until 14:38. Covering the 10.1Km course with 625m of climb and 18 controls, Aston finished in 67m49s just 5m30s behind last year’s defending champion from Norway, Kasper Fosser.
The Women’s race was subject to a protest, and again Australia was involved in the action, albeit OT’s Christine Brown being one of the three jury members.
Once again, well done Aston. A fantastic performance!
