The full list of yesterdays results can be found on:
along with a description of Simon Lessings DQ !
I raced Noosa for the first time yesterday and my overall comment is one
of praise for the organisers, marshalls and helpers for what must be a
logistical nightmare with over 1800 individuals and 1200 teams. I will
say however that the course is fairly narrow both on the bike and the
run. Certainly from the perspective of a middle of the pack Age Grouper
my opinion is that riding in a pack was inevitable with the size of the
field and the width of the roads.
I noticed Craig Walton riding alone with a sizeable lead over the
chasing pack comprising of 20+ riders and my first thoughts were that
they MUST be drafting. Overtaking in a pack of that size on the
'sometimes' narrow roads must have been almost impossible and I imagine
more than a few riders broke the rules by crossing the double lines in
order to overtake. Of course I'm not trying to defend Simon Lessing, he
should have been aware of the rules just as much as the next man.
Does anyone have any more specific details of the Lessing DQ ? What
about Clare Carney's DQ which was revoked ?
