Mountain bikers hit the trails for Dwellingup 100

Hundreds of keen mountain bikers from across the state flocked to the Dwellingup Football Oval to take on the Act-Belong-Commit Dwellingup 100 on Saturday.

In the grueling 100km ride, it was men’s elite rider Brendan Johnston crossing the line first after a prolific race.

Johnston was able to best Michael England (second) and Rowan Brown (third) in the finish, riding at a pace of 24.3km per hour.

In the female’s elite class it was Emma Viotto finishing the day in first, edging out Daniela Erni Ruoss and Steff Van Amerongen.

John Gregg was the first rider outside of the men’s elite to finish the 100, winning the male masters (40-49) division.

In the super 60 it was Jp Van Der Merwe claiming the win with an impressive ride ahead of Bart Hollemans and Adrian Middleton, while Sarah Tucknott took a win in the female open category.

Under 19s rider Owen Gordon was able to claim a victory in the 40km ride, ahead of open rider Douglas Foulkes-Taylor and under 17 Jacob Wright.
