Melbourne skier Blaze Branson had high hopes of breaking the record in the tadpoles under 10 class on Saturday, but ultimately had to settle for second spot.GEORDIE COWAN February 15, 2012 4:27am
The Victorian and Australian title holder, skiing behind Mickey D Blown, finished just 0.73 of a second behind eventual winner Robertson Racing.
In what was the 10-year-old’s third Southern 80 event, Blaze said he enjoyed coming to the Murray River for the race and was pleased with the run.
‘‘I couldn’t have done it without my observer (Nathan Batchelor),’’ Blaze said.
‘‘It was a good run in the new boat.’’
With his dad Daniel driving and mum Kristine cheering him on from the bank, Blaze said he was happy with the weather conditions during the run.
‘‘It was pretty choppy, but most of the way it was pretty smooth,’’ he said.
‘‘We came up with some slow traffic, so that would’ve hurt (our time a bit).
‘‘But it felt quick.’’
Blaze, who said skiing was ‘‘just fun’’, also competed in the sub junior boys expert yesterday morning.
