by Ed Spratt  

With a series of cancellations and postponed events this week the Australian National Downhill Championships is one of the few races not to fall victim to the COVID-19 virus. Come race day and it was last years champion Troy Brosnan who posted the top time in the Elite Men's race. Troy came closely followed by Connor Fearon in second place and Aaron Gungl closed out the top three, 3.164 seconds back.

The Women's racing saw a dominant Sian A'Hern who managed to secure the national title in 2020 after coming within half a second of Tracey Hannah at last years event. Tegan Molloy crossed the line in second place and Ellie Smith finished the day third, over 36 seconds behind Sian.

 @EarIysport: you have to self quarantine for 2 weeks after arriving in Australia at the min.
Aus has also cancelled major events where mass gatherings of people would attend. Most people here are using common sense to prevent the spread the rest are buying toilet paper.

 @Jamesgoulding: NZ has compulsory quarantine for ALL arrivals, not Australia. Australia has self-quarantine for Australian nationals arriving from Italy, South Korea, China, and Iran. Foreigners have self quarantine.

 Darn, I thought that was Chris Kovarik’s rad hair on top of the podium — I almost jumped out of my chair, but then realized it was Kovarik-hair-imposter Sian A’Hern =/. Congrats Sian!
