Kangaroobie Klassic 2017 Race Report
While it may be a little confronting for first time participants you’ve gotta love a race that circulates through a circus tent, totally ignores the winner and forces its most celebrated competitor to run barefoot through the bush in purple speedos. Thanks again to our volunteers, competitors and a sublime Princetown autumn day for making this year’s Kangaroobie Klassic another one to remember.
The punishing hill up to the transition area certainly got the heart started early with some competitors observed snacking on their timing chips and openly weeping before the mountain bike leg.
There were some fantastic local performances particularly amongst the junior teams but as the mercury crept to 30 degrees a few notable big talkers turned quickly to slow walkers and saved their breath for the task at hand.
Jim Matthews bucked the trend and his spirited trash talking at Darcy Tribe during the bike leg got even funnier when he realised the target of his abuse was a random bearded man and Darcy wasn't even on the bike course.
With the tasty smells from the Princetown Wetland Estuary Protection group's fundraising BBQ driving competitors to distraction it was back down the hill and into the Gellibrand for the paddle leg before a challenging 7km trail run to round out the event. As always many left the event wondering what the hell just happened and genuinely amazed that neoprene and lycra can stretch that far.
See you on Saturday!
