MAXXIS Queensland Enduro Series - Tamrookum 

 

The weekend saw round four of the Queensland Enduro Series head to arguably the most technical location on the race calendar, Tamrookum Mountain Bike Park. Known for its dust-filled, rocky, technical single track and home to one of the gnarliest trails in South East Queensland (Trapdoor), Tamrookum played host to the second last round of the revised season.

Set Title

With the mercury tipping over 30 degrees Celsius on race day and some super technical terrain on offer, it was set to be a tough race for all competitors. A total of 104 racers strapped on a race plate on race day, 24 junior riders testing their metal against the clock. The vast majority of riders completed the course well within the given time frame in what some would describe as ‘sauna-like’ conditions. Overall the race went well and despite a timing issue with one of the stages the event was well managed and another stellar race on the Queensland calendar.

Set Title

The stages ahead: The stages ensured that even the most seasoned riders were placed well outside of their comfort zone, with the elite men and women racing the notoriously steep and technical ‘Trapdoor’, to even get down that trail in one piece is a feat on it’s own. The rest of the stages were raced by all racers with the most challenging trail being DH into Carnage Creek, a steep, rocky and gravity fed natural trail.

Set Title

Unfortunately timing issues on Carnage Creek meant that this trail did not count towards the overall time, meaning the trail was scratched from the race times. This meant those that performed well on this trail may not have been rewarded for their efforts. Unfortunately sometimes things don’t work out and despite All Mountain Solution’s efforts, the fairest solution was to remove the trail from the overall timing.

Set Title

Race results: The business end of the day saw Ben Forbes take out first place in elite men yet again over Ryan Leutton and Mitch Codner; Elle De Nooyer took the win in Elite Women over Annelie Marquardt. Shane Oravsky and Elisabeth Fairley won the Expert Men and Women’s categories, Masters 1/2 was taken out by Daniel Hallam, Masters 3/4 Men saw Paul McPhee take win whilst Julie Hadzic won the Masters 3/4 Women’s category.Set Title

The Junior field saw Will Hynes yet again take the win in U19 Men over Sam Butler and Jack Taylor; Isabella Lemond took the win in U19 Women over Kiana Botfield. Bailey Meares won the under 17 Men’s category, Carter Sloan took the top step in U15 Men and Under 13 Men was won by Oliver Colthup. An exceptional undertaking by all of the junior field with the U19 riders being some of the fastest riders on the trails for the day.

Set Title

The Tamrookum Enduro Festival looks set to be an annual fixture and it certainly will provide some contrast to some of the other locations in the series. The next round heads to Garapine, the home of enduro in Australia and a cracking venue to finish the year off in style.
