Skike Australia Victorian Ski Chase – Update 19 August 2015

With only a few days to go before the final Ski Chase event (Hoppet/Birkie/Joey) we finally have the updated ski chase points from the weekend before last.  SkiChaseResultsWomenSkiChaseResultsMen

Once again we see familiar names at the top of the list, with Kevin Tory in an unbeatable position in the Men’s competition and Penny Grose only needs to complete one of the events on Saturday to be virtually guaranteed her win.  However, as one of the Ski Chase coordinators Kevin has ruled himself ineligible for the first prize $100 voucher at Rochford Winery, which means Ben Derrick with a handy lead over Phillip Bellingham is looking a likely prize winner.  For Phil to overtake Ben in first place he’ll need to finish 16 places ahead of Ben on Saturday.

In the U23s Casey Wright has a handy lead over her nearest rival Leila Pammer and looks like she has a good chance to take out the $300 Skike Force prize.  For the U23 male competition the numbers are very close between Tommi Silvester and Ash Forrer.  (We can’t tell exactly what the difference is as we’ve only just noticed there’s an age error in our database for Ash.  This is a timely reminder for everyone to check that we have correctly recorded your details.)

At present all U23 competitors registered are ranked in the top 12, and thus eligible for the draw of the remaining four $200 cash prizes, thanks to Melbourne Nordic Ski Club and our anonymous donors.   If you know any U23s who have competed in any Ski Chase event so far, or will be competing in Saturday’s events, be sure to encourage them to register.

With more prizes and fewer events than ever, there’s never been a better chance to win some of the great prizes listed below.  So if you haven’t already entered one of the events this Saturday, it’s not too late:  To register for the Ski Chase follow this link and enter your details:
