Icicle Trophy Race 2018: The Results

With strong, bitterly cold winds gusting across the lake today, the Icicle Trophy pursuit race certainly lived up to its name.

Right from the start, this was clearly going to be a close 2 horse race, with Steve (Byte CII) taking an early lead and Neil (Laser) making clear inroads into Steve’s advantage with every lap that passed.

As the race entered the second half, Neil finally moved into first place as they rounded Hermit mark, maintaining his lead until, with Steve snapping at his heals, Neil succumbed to the pressure, misjudging a gust and giving Steve the opportunity he needed to retake the lead and take the win.

Congratulations Steve, you’re Icicle Trophy champion for 2018!
