Park Street Champs at Valley Lakes, Winners announced

It was a beautiful evening at Valley Lakes where 137 competitors turned out for Noels course, including all the Champs finalists. The one thing that Valley Lakes is known for in the Western Series is its brutal climbs, especially up the stairs, and these again came into play for this event. Not many found the shortest course on either the A or B course with the first competitors back running approx 10.5km and 7.7km respectively, but the first back on both the C and D courses were close to the advertised length.

The biggest upset of the night was Shane Mallia winning the open men section, defeating the long time champion Bruce Arthur. Shane’s qualification into the final was not straight forward as at the first qualifier he attended Shane miscounted his controls and came in one short. Tonight Shane was very determined to win and blitzed to the finish line at an extremely fast pace, giving it everything he had.  His comment on leaving was “I’m not sure if I will be able to walk tomorrow”.

Our thanks go to Noel McVey for planning an excellent event.

Mens Open A course: Shane Mallia
