The new “CardiO” format was a great success with many positive comments. There were a few confused competitors at first and several didn’t read the clue sheet, one competitor even visited the same control twice (from different angles) and didn’t realise it. But the standout performance for the day goes to Jim Russell, who despite not posting the fastest time, won every “out” leg, i.e., the legs which repeatedly climbed up and over the ridge. He’s tough (as if we didn’t already know that) and went on to decisively win a Victorian Champs event the next day under even tougher conditions.
Is the CardiO format here to stay – watch this space.
