both mens and womens winners ran course records which was exceptional
considering the hot day. rick wells (previous world champ) and bryan rhodes
were first from the water but rick had a puncture which cost him nearly 10min
as he had trouble fixing his tyre. however he ended up 10th overall. erin baker
did not compete in this event but has been seen in christchurch.
