MTB Update

It was the first race of the Spring Summer series for the kids and there was a great turnout with 12 racing.

Well done to all the little tackers in getting their legs spinning again after winter. It was great to see their smiling faces on the track again.

Adults race there was a good mix of junior riders and not-so junior riders, with 18 in total racing. It was great to see new faces and some old ones back after the long winter break.Chris Morecroft ‘wowed’ the crowd with a trackstand start to kick-start the Adults Race.Ewen Macaskill strained a heart muscle after only 3 of this planned 4 laps. Most of the crowd considered this just sandbagging in front of the handicapper so he gets an easier 'mark' next race.

Ava Kappas had a spill but braved it out to cross the finish line, which was really impressive.Frank David was probably wishing he'd been on his new, faster bike, instead of his heavy, old, slow one - he might have gotten past Katie Moore and onto the podium.Great effort by Nick Howland and Matthew Empey at keeping the seniors at bay and cruising through to the finish line to take first and second places!

A big thanks to Alpine Butchers for their generous support in sponsoring first prize.
