Jonty was in an impressive M16 team with Tane Moore from North West and Cameron Metherill from Christchurch. Tane ran the first leg and mucked up the same control as me, handing over to Jonty in fourth place. Jonty had a clean fast run and was able to hand over to Cameron with a lead of just over a minute. Cameron increased the lead and they finished as Australian Champions! For Jonty, this meant he was an Australian Champion before ever winning a New Zealand Championship.
