What a race. You heard it here first 🙂 We called the dark horse, and he came through and snuck a win. But more importantly for you the readers, who won the first leg of our big Aussie Ultra168 Tipping competition?
Well, this guy not only got the right man, he also picked the fastest time, which makes it even more apt. Step up Rob Mason, who correctly picked Mike Le Roux as the winner and predicting a time of 16:04. Not only this, Rob was at the pointy end of the field too in the 100 miler, finishing in 9th place and a time of 20hrs 47mins. Tidy work and certainly another guy to watch for a solid placing at GNW this year.
For his troubles, Rob wins a Hammer Nutrition goody bag, along with a year’s subscription to Outer Edge magazine. Nice one Rob, at least someone listens to the Ultra168 crew and does a bit of homework 🙂
BUT, this does thrown our competition wide open. Instead of having fifty million people correctly guessing, only a handful got it right, which in our book means that there’s all to play for on the next two races. By no means is GOW a clear-cut race. There’s a few other dark horses in that one too, so watch out for our forthcoming form guide to make your pick. We reckon it’s unlikely that someone will pick all three winners, so if you get two, you could be in with a shout, and then we go to closest overall time from all three ultras.
Once again, there will be a Hammer Nutrition goody bag on offer and another subscription to Outer Edge magazine up for grabs for the next race – so get your entries in fast.
