Toowoomba Downhill

2013 Yakima Sunshine MTB Series

Sunday may 12th marked the start of the 2013 Yakima sunshine mountain bike series, downhill category. With rain the night before made the track very grippy and fast which was to make for a very exciting start to the season.

Plenty of punters packed the tracked to get the best vantage point to see the riders. The biggest draw card being the very intense rock garden where just getting to the end of the section is seen as a massive achievement. Throughout the day the rock garden was filled with cheers to excite the riders but in the end the rock garden still managed to claim a few riders which came unstuck in the difficult section.

There was a great vibe going around with all the riders having great runs and everyone mentioning how they loved the track which is all due to the hard work put in my Toowoomba Mountain Bike Club and the countless volunteers that pitch in and help make the track what it is today. With so many riders registered to race means that there is plenty of new faces out there showing that downhill mountain biking in qld is getting stronger all the time.

A big mention must go out to all the volunteers that helped out on the day to make the event run as smooth as it did. These events just couldn’t happen if it wasn’t for them.
