Seven Inverell riders competed at the 2019 NSW Mountain Bike Cross Country Championships at Lake Canobolas just outside Orange last month.
After seeing some great results throughout the season already, Inverell Mountain Bike Club members were excited to take on the course.
Cross Country Short races were held on the Saturday to determine starting positions in the Cross Country Olympic format races on Sunday.
Inverell Mountain Bike Club secretary Michelle Rees said the event provided a fun but challenging course.
"There were a couple of steep climbs and one particular tricky rocky decent."
Three Inverell riders finished as state champions after putting in the work.
Peter Horwood finished first in the Masters 3/4 Men (40 to 50 years). Brad Newman placed third in the same division and Alywn Miller placed seventh.
Ian Rees placed second in the Masters 5/6 Men (50 to 60 years). In the elite division Brent Rees finished third.
In the Masters 1/2 Women (30 to 40 years) Jodi Mayled placed first and in the Masters 5/6 Women (50 to 60 years) Michelle Rees finished first.
These were some outstanding results from local competitors.
