Day 1 at the Back 2 Back Enduro saw a bit of rain, a lot of mud it was one hell of a race. The sun came out to finish setting things up for day two.
Day 2 was a totally different day with the sun out for a hot and humid race, with a little course change as one section was still too muddy to ride. Everyone got out on the trails and went hard for the final sprint distance race of the weekend. We finished it off by crowning all of the Triathlon Queensland State Champions. — at Murrenbong Scout Campsite.
In the end Cross triathlon standout Brodie Gardner and Leela Hancox took the overall full distance championships.
