Only in its second year the Fusion Games Duathlete participant numbers more than doubled as many enjoyed a glorious sunny Sunday morning competing in the run ride run in Newstead on the weekend. This year adding 2 new events to their program, the Fusion Games started the morning with a 40km Social Ride which included a hot breakfast and coffee after at Epresso.
Next on the program was the kids duathlon as little ones as young as 7 years of age up to 11 tried their hearts out, receiving a medal at the end no matter where they came. Then it was the adults turn to enjoy the rare inner city duathlon running near the Waterfront Mirvac site and riding around Skyring Terrace.
Todd Spackman took out the great honour of being the first Male over the line while Sarah Crowley did the same for the women.
Following on from the duathlon was the great sport of cycling with 7 different graded divisions racing for top prize. First up Masters C with Patrick Oldham coming first over the line. Adam Graham won the Elite C division with Margaret Bale winning the ladies handicap. Stephen Hammer won Masters B, while Richard Rouse won the Elite B. The Masters A stepped up the pace with Lucas Nicoll triumphant on the day, with the big guns up next Peter Thompson once again was dominate in the Elite A and Justin Vanstone taking out 2 Primes and named most aggressive.
The Corporate Teams Criterium was an addition to the program and proved very popular. Aussie Home Loans, Intebuild, Aecom, Lambert & Reibhein Engineering and Fitnance all put in a team, with $100 from every team entry going to the chosen Charity Variety.
The Fusion Games raised $1560 for Variety the Childrens Charity.
