Results for Round 1 of the 2016 DH series are below, including by category, overall and a special set of results for Team Simpson. All three Simpson brothers, John, Connor and Nick took on the family challenge to see who is currently the fastest. John took the win by the way.
Well done to all those who raced today, some very close times on a dry and dusty National’s track. For the record Adrian Dawson kept his winning streak on the Smithfield Nationals DH track on course, taking the win in a time of 2:44.67. In second place just under 5 seconds back was Henry Blanch (2:49.19), with John Simpson (2:52.14) third, only 0.7 seconds ahead of 4th place Cody Mettam (2:52.83) and another second back to 5th place Dustin Michna (2:53.94).
In the Elite Women’s category, Christel Dallozzo put down an awesome time of 3:18.36, which put her mid field overall. Second place for the women was taken out by Jacinta Pink in a time of 3:32.04.
The next DH event for Cairns is currently scheduled for the 22nd May. In the meantime, make sure you get your tickets or put your name down to volunteer out at the upcoming World Cup between the 20th to 24th April, right here in Cairns.
Thanks again to Larry, Stacey and all the volunteers, drivers and marshalls for helping out, as these races don’t happen with your support.
