XCC 12km Cross Country – 3rd June 2017, Sydney International Equestrian Centre
The Sydney International Equestrian center was the venue for this new cross event. Conditions were mild with a shower or two before the start. It was a true cross-country course with testing undulations, tight turns and difficult underfoot conditions.
All AE competitors performed strongly which resulted in very competitive team performances.
The Open Male team were equal with Sydney Uni on points and came 2nd by virtue of the fact that the Uni team had 4 runners finish before AE. Goddy led the AE contingent home with Karl, Antoine, Mark and Harry backing him up.
The Open Female team ran a great team race with a fighting first place result. Rebecca, Jen, Jess and Naomi sealed this result and Aisling finishing very strongly in support.
Our Over 35 female team also followed the open lead with a first place finish – Cindy, Gill, Rona and Jude.
