Fine weather and little mud made for great riding conditions. Unfortunately the petrol rationing saga stopped some people from joining us, with 37 fronting the starting line.
The distances and winning times were pretty well spot on, ably set by John Sennett. His sons Luke and John had a full on day learning the intricacies of event organization. Well done.
Steve Sullivan, of Adelaide Mt Bike fame has reigned supreme in the elite Mbo ranks for several years now. However he got strongly challenged this week, winning by a narrow 5 second margin over 2000 foot O Aust Champion Reuben Smith. Suprisingly close on their heels, just 3 minutes down was 20 year old junior foot O Aus representative, Amber Tomas. Watch out guys! Mr consistent Bruce Greenhalgh narrowed Steve’s margin to just 6 minutes to make a close top 4.
A special mention to 13 year old Robert Hembrow, who came 4th
in his very first mbo event on the fast and furious 8 km course. Note that
"As" is not a new club, but a 3 month associate member category for mbo
