RESULTS & BIKES: 2018 Australian National Championships DH 4

Troy Brosnan, Tracey Hannah and Kye A'hern will wear the green and gold sleeve.

Dusty, dry and rough conditions challenged Australia's fastest downhillers in Bright, Victoria for the 2018 Australian MTB National Champs DH race. Troy Brosnan squeaked into the green and gold sleeve by just .09 seconds over 2017 National Champ, Jack Moir. There was no shortage of carnage as the fastest in timed seeding, Dean Lucas, had a crash that resulted in a broken seat post and Connor Fearon suffered a flat tire.

Tracey Hannah earns her 10th National Champs victory by a massive 16-second margin. New kid to the Canyon squad, Kye A'hern doubles up wins for the team with a victory in the Junior class. - photos by Dylan Shea
