In the women’s competition Kerryn Rim had a solid start 10 points clear of second place Emma Pollard, with Belinda Phillips two points behind her in third place. In the men’s competition, a big win by Ben Derrick combined with his no longer insignificant age points sees him take a substantial lead. A very honourable mention goes to J-C Legras who put in an incredible ski to take second place, a few points clear of third place Ian Franzke. With only three points separating third and eighth place we can look forward to changes in the top three positions in the coming weeks. In both the mens and womens competition we could see changes in these places as more people register for the competition.
A reminder that everyone who registers receives a chance to win a pair of skikes. All entrants 25 and under are also eligible for a chance to win prize money. See competition details on our Victorian Ski Chase page.
At present we only have six males and two females eligible for the prize money. As the top ten male and female point scorers go into the draw for a $600 prize, the odds are looking pretty good for these entrants.
