Also: MTB Action

A brutal final round of the Auckland MTB series today. Hale, Calkin and Robertson took part in the 4 lap event held on the only hills in Woodhill forest. Calkin shot off from the start, getting right up front in the thick of the action. Hale and Robertson were also battling together in the top 10 of the sport category. Come lap 2 and and Calkin was in 2nd and Hale and Robertson rolled through in 6th and 7th. Hale faded and Robertson shot on. Everyone started to feel the length in this race, as there was no easy sections to the course, it was all technical singletrack. Calkin finished lap 2 in second, then crashed and a couple of masters riders past him. Our valiant three all slowed up over the last two laps but finished strong in 1st (C), 3rd (R) and 4th (H) in the open mens category. This gave Robbo a thrid and Hale 2nd place overall in the series.
