Local domination at Mt Taylor's first Fox Superflow race
Fox Superflow mountain bike racing on the weekend in East Gippsland looks to be the first of many, after a successful event at Mt Taylor.
The Fox Superflow is a gravity enduro-style race by Rocky Trail Entertainment, the Bairnsdale event being only the second Rocky Trail event in Victoria.
Race director Bob Morris said the very social racing format proved incredibly popular with its new Victorian racers – three timed races stages had to be tackled with neutral transition sections in between. All to be completed in any order and up to five attempts on each – the fastest run counted towards the final result. With a possible 15 runs each, SuperMaster (50+) Charles Anderton from South Morang was one of the racers who did them all clocking in over 120 minutes of racing over the weekend.
The incredible performances across all age groups and race categories was outstanding – the East Gippsland MTB racers put on their A-game with Elite racer and former national-level junior Downhiller Dru Berryman from Melbourne the only one to beat the outright time of 15-year old local pinner Nicholas Banson from Bairnsdale. Berryman finished on 18:03.6 with a gap of 2.2 sec to Banson.
