Chatham-Kent Day 2
We avoided the rain again, while Hamilton swept the relay, over 40 relay, and open male tandem events. We'll see you in a few weeks in Montgomery, Alabama.
Chatham-Kent Day 1 and the Unlimited Relay
After a beautiful day of racing, Hamilton Fire took the Team event with a 4:44 Team time. Ian van Reenen almost had the best time of the year (1:22) but missed the target, opening up the way for Shaun Henderson to win.
There has been some confusion over the new Unlimited Relay category. The only change is that we're planning on a new category at Worlds, where anyone can assemble a Relay Team with anyone. While we do hope that this will be an outlet to allow competitors without their own department members
to compete as a Relay, this should not make any current teams illegal. If you had a legal team before, you still do now. The normal Team and Relay categories will still be present.
The same "organic unit" language that's been in our rules for years is still applicable to the regular Relay, and the Team categories.
