An edit Rob Stagg and I did from the previous MTBA National series for 2010/11.

Thanks to Chris Jongewaard, who was kind enough to have the Contour HD camera attached to his helmet for the entire race. This made for some great on board action as he tussled it out with Paul Van der Ploeg during the first half of the race, and then unleashed, lapping well over half the field by the finish. He even had to battle with an ambulance who was attending an injured rider from the DH practise.

The cross country race for the elite women has just finished up at the Australian National MTB Championships. The conditions up here have been very difficult and all the girls did a great job in the plus 36 degree weather.

In the Under 23 Female (pictured right) class Rebecca Henderson dominated winning by over 15 minutes and took the win in 1:12:43m, with Amy Austin in 2nd and Shelly Flood in 3rd.

In the elite women field Jenny King (pictured left) looked strong all day, and won with a reasonable gap of 2.34 mins over Rowena Fry in 2nd and Jodie Willet in 3rd.
