Australian Gravity Cup 2011/12 - Series Final, Awaba 9

The 2011/12 Australian Gravity Cup Series Final sent riders down the nutorious Monkey Trail at Awaba, near Newcastle, New South Wales.

Riders were faced with dismal weather and perhaps the most technical and daunting features of any course in Australia. The track is rated highly for it's similarity to overseas courses and served as a great test for the upcoming 2012 World Cup season.

Sam Hill and Troy Brosnan of Team Monster Energy / Specialized once again battled it out for top spots in the Elite Male category. A minor mistake would end Troy's near-perfect Aussie season, allowing Sam Hill of the same team to secure the final round of the series.

In the Under 19's, Connor Fearon reigned victorious over home-track favorite, Jack Moir, by a mere 0.2 of a second.

    The guy at .31 was taking the pinner line for sure, but as law states "pinner lines shall only be taken by pinners" and I guess he just doesn't classify as a pinner.
