Mammoth rider Ross Brinson gave a great display of his potential when he won the silver medal in the Youth category, missing top spot by little more than a minute and beating third placed Matt Jones by more than five minutes.
Mammoth provided the technical support for the event and there was also a real bonus in the appearence, in racing trim, ready to compete, of Liam Killeen. Liam, the country's top XC rider has been sidelined all season with illness and it was great to see him lining up for the elite race looking tanned and fit. Speaking before the race, he said, "I'm racing here to support my good friend Gary [Foord] at Mammoth. All being well, I'm just here to enjoy the event." Needless to say he won the elite category by a full three minutes.
