New Zealand Final Results

The energy was sky-high through 29 heats as two competitors went head to head.

The final event at the New Zealand/Victoria/Tasmania Sectional capped the weekend with a challenge that left both the competitors and spectators exhausted.

Jacka, thanks for your support, you sound like a top guy. It's tools like yourself that are giving Victoria a bad name.

The numbers just prove that Vic is not up for a community effort. We had competitors from almost every affiliate in NZ, can the same be said for Vic?
And don't give me it's too far to travel, we drove 8 hours each way. Some competitors and even spectators flew up from Wellington and Christchurch paying about what you would to travel from Melbourne. Obviously getting to regionals was not that important.

Ridiculous reply matt.

Agree weekend had to be held in melbourne. Would have at least triple the participation rate.

Next year the powers that be will ensure there is a sectional in melbourne.
