There is no question of the correct title of the Spud Race.
|The "Spud Race" as it is known locally|
Firstly the juniors start off the series of Spud Races.
Then there is the Ladies Spud Race, sponsored by the Illawarra Fly.
Here is the winner, from Kangaroo Valley.
And I would have to say that she looked so fresh and relaxed at the finish
one thought that she might have gone around the circuit again.
Well done to her!
Next to the men's Spud Race, sponsored by Elders.
My friend Bardy looks very optimistic
as he loads up the 50 Kg bag of Robertson's finest spuds.
Here is the winner about to cross the finish line.
Shock Horror - he is not a local, or even from Crookwell
He came from Sydney!
Oh, well, at least he's showing some pain.
Bardy is looking up
(as much as one can with 50 Kg of spuds on your shoulders)
to see exactly where the finish line is.
Here is Bardy in recovery mode
after completing the race.
Fine set of shorts too, Bardy.
I really admire his courage in starting the race.
To successfully finish this race is a genuine triumph.
