Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

Mar­ried moun­tain bik­ers have both man­aged to fin­ish on the podium at an event in Mackay on Satur­day.

Mick and Sam Sorley took on the Mackay Moun­tain Bike Club’s XC Se­ries at the week­end, fly­ing the flag for the Whit­sun­days.

Mick con­ceded less than a minute to Mackay’s Ryan Corry in the vet­eran mas­ter’s 3039 cat­e­gory, while fel­low lo­cal Jamie Jochheim crossed in fourth.

Sam took home bronze in her di­vi­sion, fin­ish­ing be­hind Mackay rid­ers Mel Grant and Ta­nia Moohin.

As if sec­ond and third weren’t enough, Sam and Mick backed up their ef­forts by host­ing the Whit­sun­day Moun­tain Bike Club’s first so­cial ride for 2015.

They led a group of five rid­ers through the trail in cool con­di­tions on Sun­day.

The Whit­sun­day Moun­tain Bike Club holds regular rides through the Con­way Cir­cuit ev­ery month.
