Weekener report


The BikeFit Weekender was held on May 14, 15 with the first ever eliminator run by the club on the Saturday and the cross country event on the Sunday.

The eliminator saw a small turnout of 15 riders. However the small number didn't mean it was any less fun, with the riders who took on the 1.3km route having a great time. The short, figure-of-eight shaped course meant it was great for spectators too.

The seeding run gave a good indication of how the day might go with Josh Foster posting the quickest time - an impressive 3min.14sec.

A first round saw the winners go on to battle for a place in the cup final while the third and four placed riders went to the plate division. Liv Bishop was the only woman to enter, giving most of the guys a good run for their money.

Three rounds and some 12 races later and the two finals were decided, with the seeding times having proven almost totally accurate, save for one or two "lower" seeded riders sneaking into the cup final (perhaps they held back in the seeding).

In the end it was a dominant Josh who reigned supreme in the cup final, while Bailey McKay took the win in the plate final.
