Saturday the 23rd June saw Round 1 of the South Island Winter Enduro Tour held at Lake Waihola, Lake Waihola is on State Highway 1, just 30 mintues south of Dunedin. 36 Entries hearled strong feilds in both poleski and runabout so the scene was set for a good days racing.
With the weather playing the part the 45 minute poleski race which was first up, this included all three pole ski classes; open, stock and 750 – all the pole skis have a compulsery fuel stop so this means team work at pit stop time, even in a one man pole ski race this can make or break you.
This year Steve Amendes kept his feet dry and off his ski to let way for for some interesting results.
