2012 Australian MTB Champs 10

The 2012 Australian MTB Champs hosted at Eagle Park in Adelaide provided some of the most exciting racing of the year. Temperatures reached 104 F (40C), providing some of the hottest, driest conditions possible.

Top qualifier and pocket-rocket, Troy Brosnan, took the Elite Men's win, closely followed by his team mate, Sam Hill. Rhys Willemse, who is looking to make a comeback to racing, took third.

In the Elite Female class, Tracey Hannah continued her winning streak and remains undefeated this season. Jill Kintner wasn't far behind, but a flat near the finish costed her some time.

Connor Fearon won the Under 19 category, taking back-to-back National Championship titles.

Props to Ty Bowmaker of Captyvate Media who was there to capture all the action for Vital!

    Are you for serious esky?

    I actually thought it was really well made. What more do you expect from one guy with a camera out at a race for the weekend?

    It's not like he can be expected to set up zip lines and dollies and film NWD quality footage. I'm guessing you mustn't be a fan of Clay Porter or the Parkin bros either?

    You must be trolling....

    Ps. Ty is pretty much ten years old isn't he?
