Bike winner: Jeremy Smart was the first mountain biker home in 46 minutes in the Equicycle Challenge in Dairy Flat. One of the first bike ver- sus horse challenges in New Zealand was won by the horses by about eight minutes at the North Harbour Trotting Club in Dairy Flat. The Equicycle Chal- lenge involved riding a 15km track across the club's oval, gravel roads, paddocks, river beds and forests, pitting horse riders against mountain bikers in a first-to-the- finish race. Redvale and Counties polocrosse clubs hosted the event, with mountain bikers starting the clock at 8.30am on November 21.The quickest mountain biker was Jeremy Smart in 46 minutes. Although different from usual mountain bike courses, Jeremy says the track was great. Horse riders started in groups of five to seven at 11.30am for safety. The competition attracted a range of riders. The youngest was 13-year-old Maia White, who finished second in the horse section, mak- ing some outstanding hill climbs. Rider Florence Cum- mings topped the horse riders and beat the bikers with her 38-minute ride. Her home-bred stock thoroughbred polocrosse horse set a great pace and standard for next year's competition. Redvale and Counties Polocrosse club thanks Shane Hayes and his team at Downer for their help with traffic manage- ment, the Wills family and Waste Management for allowing them to hold the event on their land.

Coast on the ball with thrilling win Pep talk: Coach Neil ''Steelo'' Morrison gives encouragement to, from left: Centre fielder Jacquie Stipec, star batter Courtney Walker, second base Jamee Wrathall and shortstop Natalie Wilcock. Even its most ardent supporters gave Hibis- cus Coast Sharks softball team little chance of a win when they faced a resurgent Mt Albert Metro away from home on the first Thursday of the month. Metro, with ace international pitcher Megan Farrell and a strong batting side, grabbed 11 hits and things looked ominous when they scored their first batter. They had all the strength and tactical advantage, but were thwarted by sharp fielding which stopped the batting chances from building. The Coast's Jacquie Stipec struck back with a three base shot in the first turn and scored when Melanie Gulb- ransen batted her home. Metro then built a handy lead with a run in the second innings and another in the third -- it looked as if was all over for the Sharks. The Hibiscus Coast fight-back started in the third turn with a hit from Courtney Walker, followed by another from Jacquie Stipec for 3-2 -- the team lifted. Walker hit again in the sixth, starting the batting for the third time in four turns. But this time it was Gulb- ransen who hit the run home to tie the game. The excitement built, but no further runs came ahead of the tie- breaker eighth innings. Coast had the benefit of it being Walker's turn to be first again and she took her third hit of the match, to bring home the runner and end the game 4-3.
