    Too strong: Matthew Oliveira was victorious in the Furniture Walk Mountain Bike Race Series at the weekend


Matthew Oliveira won race two of the Furniture Walk Mountain Bike Race Series at the National Museum of Bermuda in Dockyard at the weekend.

Oliveira, who claimed two gold medals at the Junior Caribbean Cycling Championships in Barbados this month, was victorious in the Male A Division, finishing a lap ahead of runner-up Adam Kirk.

The 17-year-old completed nine laps of the 1.7 mile course in an overall time of 56min 34.210sec.

In the Male Veteran Division, Hans Hirschi claimed victory, finishing ahead of Andrew Hern in second and Manuel Lonfat in third.

Sarah Bonnet was unchallenged as the lone woman entered in female veterans.

As usual, Male B had the largest field with 28 entries. Nicholas Narraway, a junior racer led out of the gate but ultimately, Brian Steihoff took the win followed by Alan Potts and Ziani Burgesson. In Male Novice, a tremendous battle went on for the bulk of the race with a few position changes as Simon Hanrahan secured the win. Cesar Oliveira was second and Knut Heinz third.

Elizabeth Jordan won the Female Novice, with Alyssa Rowse second and Ashley Robinson third.
