Malta Independent - - SPORT -

The DH na­tional cham­pi­onship or­gan­ised by the Malta Moun­tain Bike As­so­ci­a­tion and spon­sored by Wheel Wiz­ard was held at Sel­mun. Eigh­teen rid­ers took part in this event which was also valid for the Na­tional Point Se­ries. The size­able crowd present and stretch­ing all along the 1.4km DH course down to the very bot­tom added to the ex­cite­ment and col­or­ful at­mos­phere. Run no.1 saw each rider thun­der­ing down the course at one minute in­ter­vals from each other – cer­tainly not for the faint hearted with the first three best tim­ings clock­ing in at barely 3 secs from each other. Con­fi­dence among the rid­ers was now high with all aim­ing at im­prov­ing on their pre­vi­ous run and gain­ing those pre­cious sec­onds – Damian Camil­leri (MTB MALTA) gave an im­pres­sive dis­play of quick and sharp re­flexes and ex­treme con­trol to fin­ish 1st to claim the na­tional cham­pi­onship ti­tle with a best tim­ing of1:02:06. Jonathan Dar­manin (MTB MALTA) placed 2nd with a best tim­ing of 1:03:08 cap­ping yet an­other good per­for­mance fol­low­ing his win at the first NPS meet­ing. 3rd placed Wayne Schem­bri (MTB MALTA) con­firmed his good and con­sis­tent form with a best of 1:03:20 Gabz Veneziani was the sole con­tes­tant in the ladies cat­e­gory putting an im­pres­sive best run at 1:36:72. Next DH meet­ing shall be held on 29 Oc­to­ber at 2pm Pem­broke (near the BMX track).
