The 2013 EPIC Results

Before nominating for the Flight Centre Epic, I never really stopped to ponder why the race was called The Epic.  Somewhere in the middle of nowhere yesterday though it became very evident to me why the race had received such a title - the race is simply Epic in every sense of the word.

There was racing all weekend with the smaller Chaser events being held on the Saturday - Shobai (baby Pengu) cleaned up in her division of the junior female Chaser, Kaido finished up with a second place in the Junior mens and Kate Maslen took out victory in the Open womens 20k event.  It certainly put the pressure on for good performances in the main events on Sunday.

Taking on the 50k Pursuit was Mick Bonney, Dane Linforth, Little-Big Brother Cooper and myself whilst M1 was represented by Pengu, Thunder, Zulu, Sneaky, Grazza and Sean.
