First Round of the National MTB Series, You Yangs Victoria

This weekend Andy, Jack and Rodger headed down to the You-Yangs just outside of Melbourne for the 1st round of the National series for 2010-2011.

With a track that Jack has described as "hard" all three Sunshine Coast riders performed well.
With Andy's goal for 2011 being Marathon races, he shook off a bad start to punch out 5 extremely consistent laps to find himself in 16th place among the top quality cross country field.
Rodger showed us that consistent laps can be beneficial, pulling off a top 10 finish, after being 15th on the first lap.

Jack Jude racing his first race in under 17's and a poor starting position made his last lap his fastest and finished 8th overall.

The podium for the elite male was Ben Henderson (1st) Aiden Lefmann (2nd) and Joshua Carlson (3rd) and for the Elite female it was Jenni King, Jodie Willett and reigning national champion Rowena Fry coming in third.

The 2nd round will be in Tasmania at Glenorchy MTB Park on December 10-12.

Well done Andy, Rodger and Jack, awesome effort!!
