MMBCC MTB Update - 19 March 2012

Dirt Crit Update 19/03/12


Well a beautiful Monday afternoon and a cracking track after the recent rains brought the riders out in storm, with 9 in the kids race and 22 in the last of the Irish handicap races of the Summer Series.  It seems that as the summer has progressed into early autumn everyone is gaining fitness and speed making handicapping a bit of a challenge!  Taking out the win this week was Frank David who will surely be doing five laps the next time we race!  The next three over the line were young Flyn Bowker, Jai Lerch-McKinnon and Matthew Empey all of who are improving very quickly – great to see some even younger stars of the future up in the adult field! 


Fresh from his travels (and successes) Mitch was unable to catch everybody but lead home a close pack of riders including Rob (You nearly stayed in front of him!!), Kian, Chad, Kate Empey, Tom McMunn, Foley and Cam (again the young’un taking the honours) – all of them finishing within a minute of each other!  All in all a great night of racing and brilliant to see some new faces taking part.


We hope to see more new faces next week for our “Little Person/Big Person race”. This will be a fun event, part of the Active Families challenge, in collaboration with Active Mansfield. If you ever wanted to try out mountain biking, this is the time to come along and see what it’s all about! Take part in a social ride around Riflebutts Reserve or have a crack at the race!
