SLIDESHOW - 2015 Oceania DH Championships and Australian National DH from Toowoomba

View as: Slideshow | One Page
Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia was the location for an unusual double header of downhill mountain bike racing. The regional Oceania Championships were held on Friday and the final Australian National Round in the series was raced on Sunday. Oceania's are one of the few opportunities for riders in the region to gain the UCI points needed to race World Cups, and usually attracts riders from Australia, New Zealand and some smaller Island nations like New Caledonia, looking to take home the title of Oceania Champion.

Australian National Round 4 was the final stop for the Aussies chasing bragging rights and points in the overall. Connor Fearon took the Oceanias victory in the Elite Men, while local Toowoomba resident, Jared Graves, nabbed himself a victory in his only National round attendance this year. Graeme Mudd played the consistency game throughout the season and earned the points to claim the overall National title. While Claire Buchar took home the Oceanias fastest time, she was not eligible for the title in Elite Women leaving Tegan Molloy on top of Oceanias in addition to winning the women's National round. Enjoy an action-packed slideshow with photos and interviews from Tim Bardsley-Smith and video from fektor.com.

I just want to say thanks for checking out the slideshows each weekend racing is on. It means a lot to show you some rad racing action through the winter months, and to make sure that the Aussie race scene gets coverage done right. -TBS
