We’re back! It’s been a long off season, and thanks to some persisting wet weather, Round 1 of the Discovery Cycles 2019 Enduro Series kicked off in the Smithfield Mountain Bike Park under perfect conditions! Our biggest turnout ever for Enduro, we had 60+ riders brave the tough course layout – with Elite and U19 riders taking it one step further to include a 5th stage over the rest of the field – transit courtesy of the newly opened Pipeline!
Racing is always tight, and it showed yet again even over 12 minutes of total race time! In the end, it was Joel Sutherland who took out the top spot in Elite Male, and Jacinta Pink in Elite Female!
A big shout out has to go to Steph Garner, who after taking a big spill on Jacobs Ladder, got back on the bike (after a quick sit down) and continued with the rest of the stages!
As always, a big shout out to the sponsors, organisers, helpers & volunteers for making the day run as smooth as possible! We hope to see all you again for Round 2, July 7th!
