Really enjoyed the race series but the mistakes made with the overall series winner really took the enjoyment out of something that should have been a celebration. Participants shouldn't have to chase to get the correct results.

Really nice event. Good atmosphere. Well organised. Thank you for the work that went into it. Course is only four stars as going up that incline in Christchurch park twice almost killed me.
