It might have been grey skies over Smithfield, but there was plenty of excitement and fun to be had at the final round of the 2019 Prime Constructions FNQ XC series. The 5.8km course was a mix of classic and new trails with recent rainfall adding a bit of mud here for a little extra challenge. Congratulations for all riders for this races and across the series, for making it a great success. We hope you enjoyed the mix of different courses and venues and hope to see this continue in FNQ for many years.
As well as podiums for the day, the end of series presentations were also held. Congratulations also to all of our series winners, it was great to see close competition, all the way up the final round for a few categories.
A very big thank you to all our volunteers for the series, including those who looked after and set the courses, our marshals on course for keeping everyone safe and anyone else who offered their time to come along and help make the series as fun and successful as it has been.
A final thank you to our sponsors for 2019 with Prime Constructions supporting the series and prizes, and RD Technik for timekeeping.
Results from Round 5 and the Series are below. Racing now shifts into Downhill and Enduro with the next XC style event being the Coastal 6 Hour Solo or Teams race on the Saturday 13th July, back at Smithfield. We’re hoping to make this one special, with the unveiling of a new trail and race course in time for this event.
