Rockhampton Mountain Bike Club held its annual pre-season 3 hour XC day/night race at Seeonee Park on Saturday 17 March 2018.
This was a social cross-country event catering for solo riders, teams, and juniors and all categories were well-represented.
Despite an earlier postponement three weeks ago due to weather, Mother Nature provided perfect riding conditions today.
The race enjoyed a record number of entrants from Rockhampton and across the greater Central Queensland region, further demonstrating how much mountain biking continues to soar in popularity in our beautiful part of the world.
Particularly evident this year was the large number of juniors taking part in the race. These are our future local champs, committee members, and trail builders and it’s really great to see so many young people getting involved in the sport.
With the dust now settled, here is a summary of yesterday’s results. Congratulations to all the category winners and everyone who took part.

But alas, his life was suddenly cut short. As Harry exited his hut, he tripped over an empty rum barrel that someone had carelessly discarded outside his door, and he fell down the cliff and died. Continue reading “The Lighthouse Hub is haunted”
