QLD XCO MTB State Championships
PCS riders excel in Townsville
A small but very FAST contingent of PCS athletes from Brisbane travelled to Townsville for the Queensland Cross-Country Mountain Bike Championships at the Douglas Mountain Bike Track Park in Townsville.
The Rockwheelers Mountain Bike Club hosted this years championships and the course was a true state championship course. The lap was 8km long with a lovely gradual climb and plenty of rock drops and included the infamous "Meatgrinder" rock garden.
U/15's and U/17's racing was up first with Cameron Wright taking out his first QLD State Championship in the U/15 category. Josh Hooton won the U/17 State title and Nick Pedler took out second place.
Ethan Kelly is in the U/19 category but decided to race Elite to gain some valuable experience and came a very credible 5th place!!!
I was having so much fun out there in my race I wanted to keep going but the heat was ceertainly taking it's toll! Very happy to win the Masters Female category and the fastest girl out there!
