Adelaide's Chris Jongewaard was determined to claim first place in the National Series cross country round today in Nannup, Western Australia. The 26 year old now holds the lead position for the Commonwealth Games selection race in three weeks' time in Melbourne. "I had to get out in front," admitted Jongewaard.

"It went well for the first lap then I had a bit of trouble getting started," he said, adding, "Second lap was good and I just hung onto it until the end."

"The course definitely challenged me. I'm not too much of a climber," he said. "During practice I didn't think there was too much climbing but obviously when you race it it's different."
