Albany Extra - - Sports - Cameron New­bold

Al­bany Moun­tain Bike Club mem­bers have con­tin­ued their strong form on the WAMBA XCO Se­ries cir­cuit, with Shane Burns, Dar­ryn Reed and Jessica Wal­dron all fin­ish­ing on the podium in round 6 at the week­end.

That trio and Lach­lan Wal­dron trav­elled to Col­lie for the lat­est round of the State se­ries with im­pres­sive re­sults.

In the fe­male un­der-17 di­vi­sion, Jessica Wal­dron again per­formed well on the chal­leng­ing course to cross the line in sec­ond place.

Lach­lan Wal­dron com­peted in the male un­der-17 cat­e­gory and, af­ter a solid tus­sle for a podium fin­ish through­out the event, he fin­ished fourth.

Burns and Reed fin­ished on the podium to­gether in their male C di­vi­sion.

The lo­cal pair bat­tled it out be­tween them­selves for the mi­nor plac­ings for much of the race but Burns nar­rowly edged out Reed for sec­ond place.

The fi­nal leg of the seven-round se­ries will be held in Bal­inup on Au­gust 5. Jessica Wal­dron holds an unas­sail­able lead in her points stand­ings with one race re­main­ing, while Reed sits in sec­ond place over­all and Lach­lan Wal­dron has now slipped to fourth place in his se­ries stand­ings.

Mean­while, Al­bany had four rid­ers com­pet­ing in the El­e­ment Road Se­ries in Chid­low at the week­end.

Dan­ica Wig­gins won the women’s B-grade di­vi­sion whiley­ounger sis­ter Emily was far too strong for her small field of ri­vals in the women’s C-grade.

Fay Wig­gins also took part, fin­ish­ing sec­ond in the ju­nior girls’ 11 age group and Ri­ley Hes­lop gained some valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence in the men’s B-grade, where he crossed the line in 14th place.
