The final round of the Autumn Series was held at Riflebutts Road Reserve on Sunday. Thirty one adults and fourteen kids raced the final round. More than 60 riders raced during what was a fun and competitive 5 race series. With $500 from ATC, a set of club kit and a pair of 2XU tights from Mansfield Gym on offer for places 1,2 and 3 there was tight competition.
Presentations were held at the Delatite Hotel on Sunday evening with Tom MacMunn, Kian Lerch-MacKinnon and Foley Lachal finishing the series 1, 2 and 3. It’s great to see the young blokes really keen and riding really well (Kian and Foley did well too). Full results can be accessed via the results page.
Kids who rode 3 or more races and adults who raced 4 or more times went into the draw for some other great prizes. Darcy Bowker, Jackson Comben, Bella MacMunn and Ebony McNamara walked away with some great stuff from Shannon at ATC. Kerren McNamara will be attending the Mansfield Gym over winter, Katie Moore willed her name to be drawn out for Pilates sessions and Dave Empy will have to get out on the road bike to train up for next years High Country Challenge.
A massive thanks to our sponsors: Shannon at All Terrain Cycles, Bruce from the High Country Challenge, Steve from Mansfield Gym and Uschi from Positive Moves Pilates. Please support these guys as they have been very generous with their support of the club.
Thanks also to the trail fairies who have fixed up, adjusted, realigned and cleaned trails in the reserve and Parks Vic who have supported us in that. We now have a fantastic network of fun, sustainable trails within 5 minutes ride of town.
Watch this space for a winter road series that is coming up soon and also for a one off 3 hour pairs MTB race in a couple of months. More details to come…now where are those skis.
