There were technical issues but the Combi Course provided its usual thrills, spills and loads of smiles! The mix of … GS gates, stubbies, banked turns and the all important jump at the finish gave the hard charging stars of tomorrow plenty to think about on both the runs that they did. Despite the technical difficulties that were encountered at the last minute, the smiles on many of the young racers at the bottom was great to see. Although it was noted that people were disappointed that the race had to adjusted from electronic timing to handheld, this was a last minute problem that could not be helped, the commentary at the bottom helped to keep the parents and siblings entertained!
