Mitch finished 2nd in the 2012 Australian MTB Championships in Adelaide last week in scorching 37 degree heat. The winner (Reece Tucknott from Western Australia) was only 35 secs in front after four laps with the rest of the field over 3 minutes behind.
This week it's off to Newcastle for the final round of the National Series where he is currently coming 4th.
He has also been named in the first ever Under 17 MTB Australian team which will head overseas later in the year.
Congratulations to Mitch from everyone at the club.

We had a bit of fun during the road race last week with Dave Clark having a bit of a fall.
Blood guts and everything (not really but it sound good) and a free ambo ride to Wang.
It's amazing what some will do racing for ninth place but gear failure is a hazard for all of us.
Thanks to all those who stopped and helped get him off the road.
Congrats to Craig Wilson for the win AGAIN (attention handicapper please) and we look forward to a Mt Buller road ride this week. Duty is Josh Hopwood, Lisa Fricke, and Euan Friday with Commissionaires Leonie McLaughlin and Bruce Halket. Entries to Di by 8.00pm Wednesday please.
