MAD Rush; Mad Fun!!
The Whitsunday Mountain Bike Club (WMTBC) was well represented at the Mackay And District Mountain Bike Club (MAD MTBC)’s annual MAD Rush, particularly in the women’s field.
Over 60 competitors from Mackay and neighbouring clubs (Whitsunday, Townsville and Rockhampton) enjoyed the fast and flowing purpose-built single track at Rowallan Park. The six-hour enduro tested riders mental agility as much as their physical ability!
Competitors of all ages competed in teams of two, three and four members and there were even those crazy solo riders tackling the six hours on their own!
The top male competitor was Jeff Rubach (Townsville) completed 16 laps, top female Chris Labes (Whitsunday) clocked up 11 laps.
Other outstanding podium-finishers from the Whitsunday MTBC included a third place finish for Leigh Smith (Women’s category) and second place for Rodney mills (Masters Men).
