The Swedish pair of Tobias Vikstrom and Mattias Jaarvi won the standard class longhaul event on the Vaal River earlier today. For the first half of the race the pair were in second place close behind Gordon and Donovan Butler, but once they got past the South Africans they had a comfortable run to the finish.
Esli Berry and Monica Fouche claimed the final podium position ahead of Tertius Bothma and Monique la Grange. Raynard Berry and Riaan Keyser were fifth.
The Irish duo of Kieth Plummer and Lee Casey were slowly making their way up the field when they were caught out by a sudden gust of wind. The resulting flip put them out of the race.
