Series Tally after Round 3 (1)

Once again, mother nature gave us a little reminder of why we love the tropics with a snappy shower 30 minutes before race start at Cardwell, as riders prepared for the rescheduled round 2 of the Prime Constructions FNQ XC Series.

Supporting family members watched on with amusement, as did the race organisers, as riders removed bikes from vehicles and dressed in the rain, all while standing in little puddles of water or mud.  Aaaahh this is mountain biking, this is gonna be fun.
55 riders braved the conditions and made the journey to beautiful Cardwell by the sea, Townsville riders also attended and it seemed the Rubach/Hoyle rivalry was brewing again, would Paul brown be able to repeat his good form from Davies creek to strengthen his series lead in the Masters Male category. Would Joel Groberg and Nathan Clohesy dominate the Grand Masters Male and Sport Male categories as they have all series?
All these questions and more would be answered in less than two hours.
The smell of the sea wafted across the start line as the riders nervously awaited their time to go.  Leaving in waves every two minutes, riders were on track by 2:06pm and by the end of the first lap it was obvious the late rain had laid down a challenge to the riders, similar to negotiating the Cairns Esplanade mud flats at low tide. Chain suck and muddy cleats being the order of the day.
Dom Hoyle (Giant, Bicycle Centre Cairns) went out hard in the first lap but by lap 5 had been caught by Jeff RUBACH (Rocky Mountain – Crank’d Cycles Townsville) and it was on this lap a mighty battle, the like not seen since Stannis Baratheon attempted to take the Iron throne from King Joffrey, was fought and won by the current series leader, Dom Hoyle, This has strengthened Hoyles hold over the series heading into the final round. Dan Rubach (Rocky Mountain-Crank’d Cycles Townsville) taking third. A good showing is needed by Jeff, in Cairns, to hold his third place in the series with Keiran Mouldy only two points behind.
In the ladies categories, Anita Narula (Giant-Bicycle Centre Cairns) took out the elite women, Jodi Brown took another win to dominate the Masters Female and Mia Buurford-Baynes took the win for the Sport Female. The junior categories provided wins to Harry Sandilant and Jim Carlsson in wet and windy conditions.
Grand Masters Male, with two 70+ riders competing, was once again dominated by Joel Groberg with Mick Mehonoshen and John Koerner taking the remainder of the podiums.
Sport Male, again saw young Townsville rider, Nathan Clohesy, take the win cementing his position in the series, the final round should be the one to watch as Brett Carlsson, Vince Marcel and Nathan Granata battle out for the rest of the podium.
Vet male turned into another royal battle with Shaun Garraway holding off Adrian Tarca until the last lap where, in his own words, “I ran out of legs” and Adrian slipped by to take the win.  This sets up another excellent final series race in Cairns.
Masters male had Paul Brown take 2nd to Jamie Burton, and Brendan Skerke (Trek-Discovery Cycles Astute Financial Racing) taking third.  This moves Brendan into third for the series, Hamish Guy in second and Paul Brown with a commanding lead.
Overall a tough race, made tougher by the mud.  The consensus was, this is a Mountain Bike race, and even though there was some mud in teeth, there were big smiles across the faces of all the riders as they crossed the finish line.  A big thank you to the Cassowary Coast Multi Sport Club for setting up the course and preparing the race, a fantastic effort and we are looking forward to going back there next year.  Don’t forget to check out the CCMSC website and facebook page for upcoming events such as Mamu to Mena.  The area around Cardwell is fill with rainforest, waterfalls and incredible trails for exploring.  Big thanks to Megan from the Mareeba Mountain Goats, our timing guru, who has been keeping the results in order and providing them quickly and efficiently.
Also thanks to Prime Constructions for their support for the series as we move to the final round at Smithfield Mountain Bike Park on the 21st of May.  Registrations will be up in the next week.  Race start will be from the Worlds Event site and series winners will be presented at the end of the race there will be random draws on the day as well.  This may take a little extra time so we ask for your patience on that day. Series prizes are for those who have completed 3 or more races in the series.  Make sure you check you status in the series.  Thanks to all the riders who came down to Cardwell and supported the event, particularly those from Townsville, who also had their first XC series race the following day.
See you all at Smithfield on the 21st.

XC Round 3 2017 Results & Wrap

By | News | No Comments
Round 3 Prime Constructions FNQ XC Race Series 2017: Davies Creek:
Sunday April 9 2017 and a crowd of 71 riders embarked on the journey up the hill to Davies Creek Mountain Bike Park, home of the Mareeba Mountain Goats MTB Club for the running of the 3rd round of the Prime Constructions FNQ XC Series for 2017.   A false start to round 2 in Cardwell due to Cyclone Debbie meant the riders had a longer break than expected.
No such problem for round 3 with the sun out, this is Mareeba, 300 sunny days a year.  Riders from as far afield as Townsville again showed up to test their skills and fitness.
In the Elite male category we saw the return of Lincoln Carolan (Merida-Bicycle Central on Mulgrave) returning from his 3rd place in the MTBA National XCO series, the Rubach Brothers (Rocky Mountain – Crankd Cycles Townsville) and unstoppable Dom Hoyle (Giant – Bicycle Centre Cairns). The Elite female also had a local favourite returning in Sarah KAEHLER (BMC – Bicycle Central on Mulgrave) and her sister Anita Narula (Giant – Bicycle Centre Cairns) with Kath Deed (Trek-Discovery Cycles).
Vet Men saw Shawn Garraway and Brett Welch as the ones to watch, with Peter Craig, Warren Pike and Rod Tindale in the Super Masters. Masters Male had a huge rider base and the over 60’s men, and even over 70’s were present.
The ladies categories were a little thinner but still racing hard.
By 9:04 all riders were on course and the Mareeba Mountain Goats President, Steve Soda had the timing tent ducking for cover as he tried to dispose of a wasp nest under the timing table with an aerosol can and lighter.  What could possibly go wrong?
In 20mins and 9 seconds Dom Hoyle stamped his dominance on the Davies Creek round with the fastest lap, leading by 30 seconds and managing to stretch it out to a 1minute and half in the 4 laps to take a comfortable win.  The real battle was between the Rubach boys and Linc Carolan with an unfortunate chain snap on lap 2 ending Jeffs day with Dan then left to battle Linc alone. After losing 20 seconds at the finish of lap 3 pulling a stick out of his rear wheel Linc managed to fight back and take Dan on the line to grab second spot for the day.
The elite female saw Anita Narula take the lead in lap 1 and was never headed with a strong finish ahead of Sarah Kaehler and Kath Deed taking up the remaining spots.  Sport ladies saw Claudia Pudelko take the win from jade Clohesy and Jodi Brown take the Masters Women.
The Brown family took double honours for the day with Jodi’s husband Paul, taking out the hotly contested Masters male ahead of Hamish guy and Peter Bridgewater, no mean feat given there were 17 riders in his category.
Vet male had a change of fortunes with Shawn Garraway taking this rounds win from Brett Welch, ahead of Adrian Tarca.  This should turn out to be an interesting series with these two guys taking a round each in the early part of the series.
Harry Sandilant took out the U15 male and Travis Cummings the U17 male.  Sport male was a close race with Nathan Clohesy taking the win from Nathan Granata and Brett Carlsson with only a couple of minutes between each rider. That also meant another successful family day with the two Townsville riders on the podium (Jade in the Sport Women as well).
Super Masters Male was very close with only a matter of seconds between eventual winner  Warren Pike only just squeezing out Peter Craig and Rod Tindale making up the 3.
The grand masters males saw Joel Groberg take the win, with a best lap of 25.45 from john Koerner and Glen Mills.
Big thank you to all the Volunteers and particularly Mareeba Mountain Goats who prepared a brilliant course for round 3.  Thanks to all the riders for taking part and a shout out to those who travelled far and wide to race up here. A special thanks to our Sponsor Prime Constructions for their support.  The series has $2000 in prize money plus other prizes for the series wins and places that will be decided at Smithfield MTB Park on 21 May.  Keep that date free.
Don’t forget that round 2 has been re-scheduled to Saturday the 22nd of April at 2:00pm, the registration link is still open at  https://online.mtba.asn.au/ERegister.aspx?E=3628
so make sure you register and get down to Cardwell and support the series and the Cassowary Multisport Club.

Results – Prime Constructions 2017 FNQ XC Series Race 1

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

lap records updated

category results updated

After rain most of the week Atherton and Mother Nature found it in its heart to bless the 1st round of the Prime Constructions 2017 FNQ XC series with sunshine.  The tracks were prime, with a little bit of water flowing in the creek crossings, and the ever present croc hiding in Georges Pool.  The race was using sections of trails 1,2 and 3 of the Atherton Forest Mountain Bike Park, a 7.1km course set and prepared by the Atherton Crew, big thanks to Jeff Green and Knowlesy for their efforts with trail setup. A course that appeared deceptively flat but competitors were to find out rather quickly there was a climb hidden amongst the fun.

A massive 93 competitors were registered to race and organised and filed into race categories by the ever efficient timing team of Rudi and Megan for the Mareeba Mountain Goats. No easy feat.  The day was upon us, riders were ready and broken into 4 waves for the start.  Elite male to start first.  It was apparent from the start that the continued rivalry of Townsville versus Cairns (Rubach versus Hoyle) would be on again today.
With 14 categories to be contested it was going to be a big day of racing.  8am sharp the first of the waves is off at a hectic pace.  by 8:06 all riders are on track.  After 20minutes and 19 seconds Dominique Hoyle (Giant-Bicycle Centre) is leading the Rubach brothers (Rocky Mountain – Crankd Cycles) and Bernard Cosser-Smith (Astute Financial-Trek Racing) in elite male.  Anite Narula (Giant -Bicycle Centre) is dominating the female elite.
With a massive cross section of riders from Cairns, the Tablelands, Townsville and as far away as Mackay the pace was frantic in the start but it was apparent on the second lap that the sneaky long climb, hidden in trail 2 and 3 was taking its toll on the riders as full pace. With Gary Perkins (Bike Central on Mulgrave) marshalling the road crossing at the exit of trail 1 into trail 2 pointing out with the quote of the day:  “They were all smiles last lap but it seems they are not smiling anymore, i think this next bit hurts.”
The end of the race saw Dominique Hoyle (Giant- Bicycle Centre) dominate the Elite Male race with a convincing 2 and half minute win over the Rubach brothers from Townsville (Rocky Mountain – Crankd Cycles) in second and third. Anita Narula (Giant-Bicycle Centre) took out the elite female.  Gavin Scott (Giant – Bicycle Centre) taking out the Master male on a single speed. Travis Cummings taking out the hotly contested U15 Junior males and Richard Knowles from the Atherton Club taking out the Super Master Men. Veteran male taken out by the notable return of Brett Welch, a long time away but seems to have picked up where he left off, in winning form.
Full results for the day are now available with times and fastest laps for each category.  Big thanks to the Atherton Club for all of their assistance in putting the day together, in particular to the volunteers who manned the course and the ones who fed us with the best cooked sausages in the world.
Registrations are now open for round two of the Prime Constructions 2017 FNQ XC series to be held at Cardwell on the 26th of March.
Look forward to seeing you there.

Results for Cross Country Round 2 – 10/07/2016

By | Frontpage Slider, News | No Comments

The second round of the 2016 Cross Country series was held on the Smithfield Trails on a beautiful North Queensland Winters  day. The 6km loop  included a new section of trail ‘red belly’, which was given the approval from all riders as fun and flowing.

There was plenty of quality racing today with a hotly contested Elite Men field. Early race leader and winner from round 1, Dominic Hoyal withdrew mid way through the second lap, with a mechanical. This left a bunch of 3 containing Oliver Phillips, Daniel Rubach and Jeff Rubach in contention for the win. The bunch stayed together until half way through the final lap, where Oliver launched his attack to bridge a gap on Daniel and Jeff. Oliver increased his lead for a comfortable win, completing 5 laps in a time of 1 hour 30 minutes 25 seconds. Taking out the sprint finish for second and third was Daniel Rubach, then Jeff Rubach respectively, some 45 seconds back. In the Elite Women, Sarah Kaehler took the win with 4 laps in a time of 1 hour 27 minutes 27 seconds.

It was great to see some close racing in the other categories and plenty of camaraderie and good cheer as everyone crossed the finish line. Results for the day are below by category as well as individual lap records.
