Svenson wins muddy BBC Mtn. bike race



Sven Svenson won a very muddy Mountain bike race, Sunday. He had a time of 1:04:15 for the 3 laps of the short course. Ryan Dumaresq was second at 1:08:38 and George Gamble 3rd at 1:17:20. Pat Ferris was 4th at 1:22:58. Adam Currie had 1:09:19 and Sam Keats 1:12:38 for the 2 lap race.

It was a sticky clay fest on the trails. Climbing and descending was tough on any muddy surface. S ven and Ryan traded the lead until a snapped chain slowed Ryan down to second. Sven, 2007 National Mountain Bike Champion, went on for the win. Everyone else slipped and slid to their various placings.
