Wiz record falls as Greg wins at Long Champs

After 4 decades of competition and 1 DNF/DSQ/MP, Wiz was another victim of the punch-didn't register problem at today's long champs. Whilst Greg Barbour won M50A in a time so fast that he should get a 4kg handicap for next year, the breaking story on Wiz's MP was all that the global audience watching the live feed on the interwebs was interested in.

"Never heard of this Street character, but I've just lost $2million seeing Wiz disqualified at #ozchamps" tweeted Warren Buffet.

"#ozchamps stab in the back for Wiz and me" tweeted a T. Abbott from Sydney.

Debbie grabs gold as Big Foot take five titles

Big Foot women led the way with five titles at the Australian Sprint championships in Ballarat. Debbie Byers took her first ever title in W60A whilst at the lowest end of the age classes, Nea Shingler won the corresponding 10A title with Oliver Freeman winning the boys. Greg "goldfinger" Barbour maintained his unbeaten carnival, whilst Tracy Marsh stepped down to W35A to win.

The small area made for congested competition, with  a few head-on collisions, map exchanges and a lot of red-and-white tape.

Highlight was a clear win to Greg Barbour - he tied with Queenslander Mark Nemeth at yesterday's Vic Champs and was behind Mark for much of today's event before finally catching him over the last set of short legs in the mining.
