The Organisers Race Report included :
“Last season’s KOTH, M-40 Will Davies, fought off early challenges from Jeremy Ritcwy, Michael Skobierski and Stefano Del Faverno to pull away over Lantau Peak and win in 4:02:13. Will was the form runner on the day and looks a serious contender to repeat as King of the Hills. Stefano surged past a struggling Michael Skobierski on the final South Lantau Trail section to claim second, with Michael 3rd and Guy Connell fourth and third in the open category. M55 Bob Shorrock finished a fantastic 5th place overall (4:13:22), followed by a long gap before 6th place Anthony Leung (also the second M40 runner) finished in 4:34:35. Open runner Romain Demare was seventh, with M40 Ezra Emerson in 8th overall and 3rd in the M40 category. Open runner Baptiste Puyou finished 9th and M50 stalwart Hau Ping finished 10th overall and first in his age group. M55 Chan See Kau finished 11th overall and 2nd in his age group. Jube Lo Chi Wai claimed 3rd in the M55 category while finishing in the top 25 overall.”
Race Three is on January 3rd and Race Four February 28th and no doubt Bob will be looking for a clean sweep of wins.
