What a huge sporty weekend

The 2007 Pier Sportsfest wound up today with the Coral Coast Triathlon and Pump n Pedals A and C Grade cycling criterion held today.

The Esplanade circuit was abuzz with lycra, sweaty athletes and a few spills, under near perfect conditions.

Councillor Margaret Cochrane, a big supporter of sporting events in the city, showed up to cheer on her favorites. Local sports identities, Richie Bates and Jamie Townsend kept the crowd and participants informed with race commentary throughout the events.

Steve 'Moose' Rankine took out the A Grade criterion, after an impressive race to the finish.

A fantastic turn out and a stunning Cairns day made the event and atmosphere truly amazing.
