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.
