MMBCC News - 21 November 2012

Hi Everyone,

A Big week for Mitch this week with a good win on our new local course which was enthusiastically raced by 32 other participants ( see Bruce’s report below) and a great win in the  State Mountain Bike Championships (see Fiona’s report below). Well done!!

As I write Tim Ross is forging ahead with 7Peaks7days. Day one saw Bruce and Tim battle snow on Mt Baw Baw with Bruce sustaining an unfortunate hip injury in the slush. He’s hoping to be up and pedalling tomorrow. I joined Tim on Lake Mountain for a leisurely 120km yesterday and he went on to ride over 200km with Mansfield to Buller to Whitfield today. A few more of us will be joining them in Bright for a trip to Omeo and back.

Mountain Biking

The 2012 State XC Championship was held on Sunday 18th November at the Mt Avoca Winery

Mitch placed 1st in the Under 17 Men’s category – winning the State Champion title

Kian placed 3rd in the Under 15 Men’s category – in his first race at a State Championship

So as you can see both boys did extremely well and represented their club tremendously!

The club now has a State XC Champion and a State XC podium place getter amongst their junior members

This is terrific considering the MTB side has only been going for a few years!

And as far as I can see the MTB juniors are only going to get better as times goes on with the depth of membership the club has.

Many thanks, Fiona Greenway
