WSMTB Club Championships

80 riders rolled up for WSMTB's Club Championships. The morning warmed up quickly and once "go" had be shouted the racing was red hot.
In A Grade the clubs Jr National Representatives were making it hard for their more senior competitors. I did't feel fast on the first lap as the remainder A Graders seemed to ride away. An additional climb in the course for the Champs made it extra tough, especially considering the days temperature. While I went on to ride within my comfort zone for the remainder of the race I made the most of the fast B Graders holding their wheels after they passed for the next section of trail. Placed 8th in A Grade for the Champs.

There was a good turn out from my team mates from JetBlack MTB Racing, Sara Mills went on to place second in the A Grade women after a fast start. Elton Judd, Team Manager, rode in B Grade, dropping his chain and quite possibly a place as a result, 8th. Ben Go rode mid pack in C Grade inching out Ian Butler, 6th and 7th respectively.
A big turn out for the team in the U13s too, with the Judds entering their first WSMTB race, both not to far off the race pace finishing in 8th. The Browns were under the watchful eye of mum while dad was in Canberra riding the ‪#‎Mont24‬, Candace 3rd and Charlotte 7th.

With the BBQ, cooked by the dedicated local RFS, and a cold drink included in the race entry fee everyone was a winner today.
