Queenstown’s ‘Peaky Blinders’ team have claimed, purely in jest, victory in the 2021 Peak to Peak — despite the event being cancelled due to Covid restrictions.

The multisport event, from The Remarks to Coronet Peak skifields, was to have been held last Saturday but, undeterred by the official cancellation, the team, comprising, from left, Dave Mahoney, Ebony Hornibrook, Regan Pearce, Simon and Sarena Glass, decided to do it
anyway, giving them the unofficial titles of overall winners, first finishers and team home in the fastest time.
