Photo: SIMON BLOOMBERG Two of the youngest riders in the Tahuna Beach Hol- iday Park Rainbow Rage were also the fastest with Waimea College's Henry Jaine and Olivia Miller of Nayland Col- lege winning the men's and women's sections of the 106 kilo- metre mountainbike ride from St Arnaud to Hanmer Springs. Henry won last Saturday's men's race in 3 hours 50 minutes and 50 seconds while Olivia was the fastest female winning in 4hr 38min 3sec. And the two 16-year- olds would have gone even faster if they didn't have to contend with bone-shaking corrugations on the gravel road and a slight head- wind. I was much fitter this year and yet only a minute faster than last year,'' Henry said. If the road wasn't so rough and we didn't have that wind I would have gone quicker.'' Henry made his winning break on the leading bunch of three riders after 40 kilometres. He applied the pressure in the first big climb and raced clear to beat Brendon Matthews of Nelson by 2min 8sec. Nelson's Chris Shar- land was fourth in 4hr 1min 47sec. Henry was also faster than his father Mark who posted 4hr 27min 38sec, his fastest time in six Rainbow Rages. Olivia finished in 4hr 38min 3sec in her first Rainbow Rage, heading off Alicja Maslowska of Nelson (4hr 54min 41sec) and Waimea College's Shelley Blaker (5hr 17min 34sec). Olivia rode on her own from Lake Tennyson, after staying with the lead group until the first ford. It was really tough but it was good fun,'' Olivia said. Olivia was also racing against her father, Tim, who finished just ahead of his daughter in 4hr 32min 29sec. Three hundred and one riders lined up in the event which also included the 144km Rainbow Epic, 70km St James Loop, and 42km Tennyson Return.
