FABULOUS FAT TYRE FARM!
Mountain bike racing made its way to Fat Tyre Farm on Sunday August 5. The occasion was Race 6 of the Winter Series of races held by New England Mountain Bikers (NEMTB). 32 riders enjoyed fantastic single track amongst the gum trees and rocks. They faced some of the steepest climbs in the region with granny gear getting a real work over.
Three riders flew around the track at the head of the field. Alwyn Miller, Dave Harris and Greg Manttan set a cracking pace for their 4 laps with Alwyn (1 h 11 min 1 sec) coming away with the win in the open men’s division. Second was Dave with Greg third.
The Women’s race over three laps was won by Shireen Brunckhorst on her home track. Second was the fast improving Sonia Wrenford-Mobbs with Nina Stone third.
Australian Champion Holly Harris easily won the under 19 Female division with her 4 lap time of 1 hour 18 min 40 sec beating 10 out of the 14 Open Men riders!
The three Under 15 girls are all racing well with Katherine Hosking winning from Emily Wooster and Winona Rumble.
Michael Harris rode his two laps in an amazing time of 39 min 13 sec to win the under 15 male race. Angus Gasbarri was second with his cousin Kayne Gasbarri third.
Harry Wooster rode three great laps in the shortened Dirt Masters race.
The next race held by NEMTB is the final race in the Mid North Coast series. This race is called Attitude @ Altitude and will be held in the Armidale Pine Forest on August 26. Good luck to those local riders who are off to Port Macquarie this weekend for the second last race in this series.
