The Twin Peaks Downhill event conducted on Sunday 23 September 2007 provided a great opportunity for members to gain much needed practice prior to the forthcoming National Series round 2. DRCC was well represented by Hayden Lester, Ben Power and Brandon Yrttiaho who all featured in podium finishes – well done guys!! The event was conducted under ideal conditions given the courses were easily accessed as a result of recent fires. An overnight shower on Saturday night provided the necessary moisture to keep dust to a minimum and the track’s firm for the major part of the day. All competitors practised and raced Track 1 (fast and open) during the morning session and then Track 2 (rocky and technical) in the afternoon session. Final results for the competition were achieved by adding the times of both tracks. DRCC featured as follows:
- Senior Hardtail – Hayden Lester (1st place)
- Junior Men – Under 17 years – Brandon Yrttiaho (1st place) & Ben Power (3rd place).
Further Downhill events will be conducted at Twin Peaks on 7 October & 11 November 2007. See the Two Wheel Promotions web site for futher details including nomination forms. Photos from yesterday will be posted shortly. HP
