Bike Methven 679 Cross-Country mountain bike race

Monday, January 06, 2014

Bike Methven ran the 679 mountain bike cross country race in The Mt Hutt Bike Park on Sunday. This was the second year of this race with support from Big Al's. The winner of the 679 x 2 was will known rider from Rangiora Ben Oliver. Ben compared the course favourably with the Hanmer Hammerhead. 1st woman was Ingrid Richter from Nelson. Surprise winner of the 679 race  was downhiller Michael Breading on a borrowed bike. Young Michael flew around the two laps and beat some more fancied riders. Ethan Rose 10 years old smoked around the 679 into 4th place overall. Remember his name as he will be well known if he sticks at it. It was a hot nor west day and everyone had a good ride with a few riders taking on the Novice trail for a first race.
