Another great day of gravity racing was had yesterday for Round 2 of the Downhill series! The weather was clear and the racing tight as usual down the very fast Nationals course! The new format of one timed race run leaves riders hanging it all out on the line to see who gets on the top step.
While most all riders spent their morning getting in all important practice runs, kudos goes out to young-gun Joel Sutherland who spent his morning behind text books, only to show up in the nick of time to jump on the last shuttle vehicle taking riders up for their race run – and without much of a surprise, he put it together to get himself 3rd place in elite!
A big congratulations to all podium placers, and to all riders for getting out and having fun! With one round remaining, it’s going to be a big one so get prepared!
Cheers to the race sponsors & supporters and everyone else who makes these races happen:
Tropic Rides MTB shuttles and Tours
Edge Cycleworks for podium prizes
Spudhead for keeping our bellies full
And all track marshals, shuttle drivers & timers!
See you all at round 3!
