ABOUT 84 riders enjoyed perfect track conditions at Nowra’s Coondoo course for round three of the South Coast United Mountain Bike Club Cross Country Championships. 

It proved to be another perfect day on June 21 for mountainbike racing with mild, sunny weather track just south of Nowra.  

Light rain early in the week had settled any dust and provided plenty of traction for those who corner fast.

Belinda Althaus took out the elite female and Jake Whitton was crowned the elite male.

David Bell won the expert male division, Liam Gomez was too good in the ender 13 mixed, and Harley Narbeth shone in the young guns mixed.

Round four of the Cross Country Championship will be held on July 20 at the Butterfly course off Forest Road, just south of Nowra.  

The track is rated intermediate with B lines around difficult sections.  

The mud flickers (children aged from three to 10 years-old) will enjoy the new track built for them at Butterfly.

Different classes allow racers to select an event suitable for their age and fitness level.   

All categories of riders are catered for.
