Great start to the 2018 Cairns MTB club downhill race season, with 52 rides getting the race face on and battling it out in the Smithfield dust.
With plenty of practice to be had on Saturday and Sunday, we knew racing would be tight, with riders getting one race run to pull it all together.
The track was fast and flowy with the rain on Saturday night meaning early morning practice with dream dirt but as the riders got out on course it got real loose and dusty, and the varied conditions caught a couple of riders out,
Shout out to Les Lanza with a slightly off line jump saw a bad landing a broken arm! Heal up Buddy!!
All in all great day out on the hill. Photos and results below.
Cheers to the race sponsors:
