The Real Bike Insurance MTB Cruise was held on the weekend at Mt Stromlo in Canberra. The event is designed to give recreational riders the chance to mix it up with the fast guys with five distances on offer: 10, 30, 50 and 80km as well as a 100-mile option for those who just can’t get enough of lapping Stromlo’s awesome singletrack.
The 80km race pulled the fastest racers. Regular Enduro contributor Shaun Lewis (Rockstar) took out the men’s event while Prita Jobling-Baker was the first home of the women. In the 100-mile event Brett Bellchambers took the win for the men and Bec Parkes was the fastest of the women.
You can’t go wrong when you host a race at Mt Stromlo and there were plenty of smiles out there as the event-hub pumped all day under the slow-to-rise Canberra sunshine.
