Race Report

The first round of the mountain bike 2015 SXC Series saw three members of the squad and the team manager have a highly successfull day at the races.

Kerry Macphee on Podium at SXC R1

FIrat up were the Macphee sisters Kerry and Kirsty who did the squad proud. Kerry was magnificent - she simply rode away from the field to easily win the Elite/Expert race. Sister Kerry had an impressive debut at the MTB event finishing in a very impressive 5th place.

Different categories and age groups race at the same time and Team Manager Gavin Earons just had to watch as Kerry caught him, passed him and left him trailing in her wake! He was pleased with his race and just missed out on the Super Vet podium by finishing in 4th place. Truth be told he was a bit disappointed with the result - he failed to recognise the rider in front, thought he was in another age group and did not race him to the line - missing out on third by 9s in the end.

John Neil Mitchell was up next and didn't he do well in his first ever mountain bike race! He road a great race on what is a super fast course to come in 3rd! It is fair to say that he was super chuffed with his result - and rightly so!
