Cameron Ivory claimed his second Mountain Bike Australia series win after topping the podium at Sunday’s cross-country eliminator event at Moama’s Five Mile Trails.
Fresh from a strong performance on Saturday, which snared the under 23 competitor a second place and overall Olympic series (XCO) win, Ivory backed up with a narrow but equally impressive ride in Sunday’s eliminator (XCE).
Ivory finished the action-packed 600m course just two seconds ahead of Luke Brame (1:30) and Sebastian Jayne (1:33), clinching the race in a dramatic sprint finish.
The result elevated Ivory to the top of the elite men’s XCE rankings and equalled his first place finish during the series opener in Adelaide on January 14.
Olympian Dan McConnell, who took out Saturday’s race, finished fifth which took him to second place on the overall leaderboard.
In the elite women’s event, a first place to Rowena Fry gifted her a runner-up series finish behind overall winner Emily Parkes.
Fry (1:44) beat Parkes (1:45) to the line in a close finish to secure her second win in three rounds, but with Parkes adding yet another runner-up finish to her total, accumulating enough points to take the overall title.
Roberts, competing in the three-hour veterans category, completed the 10-lap course in 2:26:19, claiming the win ahead of Nathan Smith (2:38:21) and Jarrod Moroni (1:39:12).
Haley (under 15) and Thompson (under 17) claimed a first and second place respectively.
