The National Championship DH race just wrapped up at Eagle Mountain Bike Park in Adelaide, South Australia.  "Sik" Mik Hannah took top honors in the Pro Men's field, Connor Fearon in Junior Men, and Leonie Picton in Pro Women.

The day's stand out performance was Connor Fearon's blazing fast run, which was less than two tenths of a second slower than Mik Hannah's.  We expect to see a lot more from the Aussie Junior this World Cup season.

Be sure to check back later for video coverage.
