  Blair and King take honours in round one of the All Mountain Cup Andrew Blair (NSW) and Jenni King (VIC) claimed the overall individual victories in the first round of the All Mountain Cup at the 2011/12 MTBA National Series at Perth’s Goat Farm at the weekend.  The All Mountain Cup saw the country's best riders cover three events over two days - Cross Country Olympic (XCO) format, Cross Country eliminator (XCE) and Super D formats, with the time being combined from all stages to determine the final general classification.  After Saturday's Cross Country Olympic (XCO) format, Sunday commenced with the XCE.  This saw riders seeded in a time trial followed by exciting side-by-side elimination racing, with the first two riders in each heat progressing to the next round, culminating in a final of four riders.  The second event of the day was Super D, a downhill time trial. The opening XCE seeding time trial saw close racing across all grades.  The fastest time of the morning was set by elite rider Joshua Carlson (NSW – 2min 12 sec), who edged out flying U23 rider Cameron Ivory (NSW - 2:15) and Sid Taberlay (TAS - 2:18). Jenni King continued to dominate the women’s field setting a time 2:37.  The tightest racing was in the undecided U17 Male category; local rider Reece Tucknott (WA) started on the front foot by recovering 5 seconds of his 20-second deficit to leader Hamish Prosser (ACT). The four-rider heats proved for interesting racing across all categories.  Jenni King was quick off the line and lead from start to finish to take out victory in the elite women’s category ahead of Sarah Holmes (SA) and Jodie Willett (QLD). In the U23 men, Mitchell Codner (NSW) demonstrated his preference for short format racing, taking a convincing win ahead of Luke Fetch (VIC) and Sebastian Jayne (NSW).  In the closely contested U17 category, both Hamish Prosser and Reece Tucknott failed to take advantage of the time bonuses on offer. The elite men’s category saw exciting racing across all heats.  Sid Taberlay failed to qualify for the final after crashing in the semi-final.  Ben Henderson, Joshua Carlson, Peter Hatton and Andrew Blair all lined up for the final dash around the 1.0 km course.  Carlson got the jump off the line and was never challenged; he comfortably took victory ahead of Ben Henderson and Peter Hatton. The afternoon’s Super D was a time trial from top to bottom, along a steep and challenging 2.0 km course.  The elite riders were tipped to come in just below the 4-minute mark.  Only Joshua Carlson was able to sneak inside the mark with an impressive time of 3:56. Carlson was one of the few riders in the elite field with international experience in the Super D format and lived up to the pre-race favorite tag.  Local rider Dave Nairn(WA) took second ahead of Ben Henderson (ACT). There were no surprises in the elite women’s field; Jenni King continued her weekend of domination taking out the Super D.  On Saturday she “had no idea what Super D was” but it made no difference.  The race for second place was very close with Jodie Willett just edging out a fast finishing Rosemary Barnes for third. The fastest U23 rider was Jack Haig (VIC), Cameron Ivory came out in front of Mitchell Codner for second by under a second. After a tough weekend of racing it was Saturday XCO that decided the podium for the All Mountain Cup.  In all elite categories the XCO winner walked away with the All Mountain Cup series leader plate.  Luke Fetch will be the rider to watch in the U23 category throughout the season.  Both Blair and King had strong performances that bode well for the remaindered on the All Mountain Cup. Blair had a nervous day of race, “I was relieved to take the overall victory.  The Super D and eliminator were short but potentially dangerous disciplines.  I was really happy to make it into the final of the eliminator, it was a good way to not just be completely conservative and get our there and have some fun racing.” The Super D was a high stakes race, a crash or puncture could have devastating consequences.  Blair was “definitely scared about keeping it upright in the Super D, I was just happy to get down and post an OK time and not take too many risks.” The next round of the All Mountain Cup is at Mt Buller on the 21st and 22nd of January.

Cameron Ivory NSW 1:39:48.44    5. Robbie Rhodes WA 1:40:47.93 XCO Review In the men’s elite event Andrew Blair (NSW) and Sid Taberley (TAS) fought continuously throughout the 6-lap race.  After a fast start, Athens Olympian Sid Taberley was leading the field as they entered the singletrack.  By the end of the decisive first lap, a lead group formed containing Sid Taberley, Andrew Blair and Peter Hatton (WA).  The trio continued to open up an advantage over Joshua Carlson (NSW) who was chasing alone in fourth.  The technical nature of the Perth course took its toll on many rides, including Hatton who failed to finish due to a mechanical incident.    With 2 laps remaining, Blair opened up a small advantage after Taberlay dropped a chain.  Taberlay dug deep to close the gap, and the 2 leaders were together when they received the bell.  Early in the final lap, Blair opened up a gap at the top of the challenging and never looked back.  With the overall classification in mind, he pushed all the way to the line taking victory in a time of 1:41:23. Taberlay came in second 1:26 later (1:42:49), third place was taken by Joshua Carlson (NSW – 1:44:58).  The first local rider to finish was Craig Cooke (WA) in 6th place. Blair continued his good run of good form in Western Australia.  Less than a month ago he took victory in the Cape to Cape Mountain Bike race in South West WA.  Rather than travelling to the Northern Hemisphere to race World Cups over winter, Blair choose to stay in Australia, a prepare for national season skiing and racing cyclo-cross. Blair made the initial selection, “Fortunately I made it into the front bunch without having to burn too many matches.”  Blair had Taberlay on his wheel for most of the race, “I had a voice in one ear saying he’s going to stitch you up, he’s going to stitch you up.  In the other ear it was saying you can do it, you can put him away.  It’s definitely nerve wracking having a rider of Sid’s caliber behind you.  He is a smart racer and I couldn’t believe it when I hit him on the last lap.”  After he consolidated the gap, “I wish I had a rear view mirror on my bike I was looking over my shoulder that much.” The first racing of the day saw the elite women tackle the challenging Goat Farm course, with 210 meters of climbing each lap, the course would suit a strong climber.  Jenny Fay (NSW) started quickly leading the field into the singletrack.  Early in the first lap Jenni King came to the front and never looked back. Over the 5 lap race, Jenni King consistently extended her advantage by close to a minute a lap on Jodie Willett (QLD) in second place.  King was at home on both the climbs and the technical rocky descents.  King crossed the line in a time 1:39:50, front of Jodie Willett who finished in 1:43:53. Jenny Fay placed third in 1:47:22 Like Blair, King also won the recent Cape to Cape mountain bike race in WA. The experience gained racing World Cup’s in Europe earlier in the year put her in good stead for the season opener. King was at home on the course. “I really loved the course, it was pretty technical when you were riding quick.  The rock gardens, drops and chutes were great fun.  The climbing was tough, but I think the steeper climbs suited me.” With the remaining rounds of the national series in mind the result was encouraging for King, “I trained really hard over winter, but saying that I am certainly not peaking yet.”   In the U23 Male category, Luke Fetch (VIC) rode consistently to take the victory in a time of 1:25:57.  Mitchell Codner (NSW) started quickly but was unable to match Fetch when he was passed on the third lap.  Codner finished second in 1:28:38, Michael Crosbie (VIC) finished third in 1:30:19 XCO Elite Male Results    1.
