** GT:15 Winter Edition - Final Standings **

  Overall Winner - James Buchanan

Huge congratulations to James Buchanan for a formidable '11th hour' entry and triumph in the AVC GT:15 Winter Edition stage competition coupled with an impressive tally of bonus points.

  La Grimpeur Winner - Darren Carter

Sterling effort early on in the competition saw Darren achieve some enviable times on the climbing segments ultimately leading to his victory in La Grimpeur climbing competition.

  Super Mario Winner - Martin Ward

Some impressive rides late in the competition saw Martin contribute some very committed times on the downhill segments culminating with victory in the Super Mario downhill competition.

Well, after 3 months of wind, rain, the odd day of snow, fog and more wind the Winter Edition of the GT:15 is ended.

A quick review of the action for those of you who were too busy training to pay attention to the GT : December saw Darren Carter and Rich Lovelock start enthusiastically and Darren built himself a handsome lead which lasted until just a few weeks ago. Much of January and February was pretty darn breezy and not really conducive to fast times but the promise of Spring over the last few weeks has seen a renewal in the competition. First John Crossman and then James Buchanan got well stuck in as the end of the competition neared. In the end they both overcame Darren, with an impressive James accumulating 5 stage wins and 191 points for first, John getting 1 stage win and 162 points for second and Darren holding on to third with 151 points. David Castledine scored the other stage win.

Darren won the Le Grimpeur climbing competition from James by a single point and Martin Ward showed impressive pace and commitment on the descents to win the Super Mario Sprint competition.

The AVC GT:15 standings below are split in to three main sections:

  • 1. Overall Standings - Overall leaderboard based on combined points total from GT:15 stages and bonus challenges
  • 2. Stage Competition
  • 3. Bonus Competition
  • 4. Standings Challenges - Bonus challenges whereby points are allocated on standings for the individual bonus challenge (e.g. Pub Cricket)

Please make use of pagination, 'Show x entries', column sorting and search/filtering on the tables.
Generally speaking, the standings will be updated on a weekly basis for now, most usually on Sunday evenings. There is a lot of number crunching, linking etc on this page, so if you see anything you think is incorrect or missing from the page, please send a message using the web contact form.
