Victoria Tops 2014 National MTBO Series Standings

Tuesday, 14 October 2014

Victoria pedalled into 1st place in the Elite and Masters National Standings with strong individual performances from Carolyn (W 21-) and Tim Jackson (M-20) in Round 3 in Margaret River over the past weekend. Wins by Heather Leslie (W50-), Kathy Liley (W60-), and Blake Gordon (M70-) pushed the Vic Nuggets into 1st (282 points) in the Masters - a narrow 35 point margin to fast finishing Qld Storm. The Jacksons boosted the Vic Elite total to 141 points, 40 points clear of 2nd place WA.

The Victorian MTBO Nugget team of 9 riders came back with seven impressive National MTBO Series trophies (dubbed The Sprockets) for Carolyn Jackson, Heather Leslie, Kathy Liley, Dale Ann Gordon, Harrison Keeble, Tim Jackson, and Peter Cusworth. Just missing out were 2nd placers Alex Randall, Angus Robinson, Iyke Martin-Gordon and Blake Gordon with 3rd place going to Carolyn Cusworth, and Keith Wade.

Despite low numbers riding, the organising team headed by Ricky Thackray are to be sincerely thanked for setting 3 of the best courses for 2014 in the challenging native bush, single-track in pine plantations - capped off with sprint final in Gloucester Park in suburban Margaret River.  WA has set a high standard for MTBO that will be difficult to match in early November at the Victorian MTBO titles in Maryborough and Beechworth.
