Winner Kirk blazes a trail

Seventy-one male and female racers converged on Lodge Point Park to compete in the third race of the Fat Tire Massive Race series today.

Jumps, dropoffs, rocky rooty climbs, huge berms and lots of cornering were laid out in a 1.4-mile track that rewarded racers hugely for mastering the obstacles.

In the Open class, Adam Kirk blazed a trail to clinch an impressive first-place finish ahead of Hans Hirschi and Alan Potts.

In the Novice class, there was a shuffle among the regulars as young Manning Smith demonstrated his continued improvement finishing first after four laps with average lap times to rival more than half of the open class. Clive Langley took second place while Matthew Ringer earned a hard-fought third place.

In the female Novice class, Jen Wilson and Zina Jones re-ignited their rivalry with Wilson holding off Jones to prevail this time round. Jessica Gibbons rounded off the top three. The next race will be at Admiralty House on Sunday, January 6.
