Event Wrap Up

Max Adventure Race
Saturday 26th November, 2022
Royal National Park, NSW

A stunning early summers day welcomed over 350 adventure racers to Sydney’s Royal National Park on Saturday. Keen racers of all ages were soon pouring over the map and plotting their course. Before long the start gun sounded and they were off and racing!!!

Teams were greeted with an exciting course, including exhilarating flowing single track mountain biking and a fast flatwater paddle on the upper reaches of the Port Hacking river. Congratulations to all that completed the event, a special shout out to our younger team members who continue to impress with their enthusiasm to complete the course.

Fastest team in the Classic Course was Belrose Bicycles (Chad and Ryan Armstrong) completing a rare sweep of 1st place at all the NSW legs of the Max Adventure Race series in 2022, congrats guys! The second Male team home was Dingos (Ryan Hardy & Timothy Hubbell) while I Thought This Was a Park Run (Andrew McLachlan & Bryce Hudson) were third.

In the Mixed category the experienced duo Alpine Quest (Maria Plyashechko & Sergey Kurov) were the winners (and 2nd overall), beating home TMC Costal Mountain Hybrid Fusion (Kirsty Lowe & Michael Vanos) and Canvanauts (Tessa Carnieie & Etienne Gautier).

Among the Female teams the mother and daughter team of Mad Mielke’s (Jody & Connor Mielke) were the first home in front of team Barnie (Marnie Prowse, Beth Bryce) in 2nd and Worst Pace Scenario (Jacqui Shakespeare, Ineke Jones) in 3rd.
