Moun­tain bik­ers com­pete

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

BIKE rid­ers hit the Promisedland trail on Sun­day to com­pete in Moun­tain Bik­ing Bund­aberg’s first four-hour race.

Com­peti­tors pushed their bikes to the lim­its on the 12km track, rac­ing as many laps as pos­si­ble in the al­lo­cated time.

The 12km course was in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion, and in­cluded 2.6km of new sin­gle track.

Glad­stone rider Michael Eng­land showed too much class, win­ning the solo male sec­tion, while Kyla MacDon­ald and Mandy Finch won fe­male pairs, Dane Lin­ford the over-40s and Dun­can Allen the ju­niors.

Club spokesman Andrew Cole said the weather con­di­tions were per­fect on the day.

“We had beau­ti­ful con­di­tions,” he said.

“The rain from the last cou­ple of days was per­fect.”

The next race is an XCO for­mat con­test on Sun­day, June 29.

Any­one in­ter­ested in be­com­ing in­volved in moun­tain bik­ing should con­tact the club at www.moun­tain­bik­ing­bund­aberg.com.au.
