The second round of the 2016 Cairns Downhill series was run in somewhat damp conditions on the Smithfield Nationals downhill course. This didn’t stop nearly 50 riders getting out there in the wet and muddy conditions to throw down some great times. Jordan Payn from Townsville took the top step in Elite Men, with a very respectable 2:53.11. Dylan McKenzie took 2nd place, some 6 seconds back and Yanni Marple took a very close battle for 3rd. Christel Dallozzo, also from Townsville took the win in the Elite Female category with a 3:33.44, closely followed by Kaitlin Lawlor only 1.6 seconds in 2nd place and Jacinta Pink rounding out the podium in 3rd.
Results from the day are below and well done to all those who took part.
Once again a huge thanks for all of the volunteers and helpers for day, made a little more challenging by the rain. Stay tuned to the website and facebook for details of the next round of the club Downhill series
