Success for riding couple
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.
