The 2016 XC Classic has been on since last Saturday with just one day off. We had 2 at Mt Cook and 3 at Tekapo with flights in the 80s and 70s. Longest distance so far is 131 kms from Magic to Teviot (south of Roxburgh) but the contest isnt over yet.
Theres been some pick-up problems resulting in nights out out in cars and farm buildings but no crashes in spite of thermals of up to 2400fpm to 10,000ft. Flights entered so far on the NZ XC Champs page...
