Alan Potts stormed to victory in the second race of the One Communications MTB series with a commanding victory at Lagoon Park, in Sandys.

Tackling the challenging technical course, Potts took the honours in the Male Open 60 Minutes race, completing a total of seven laps in a time of 50min 38sec, more than a minute and a half clear of nearest rival Chris Nusum, who also completed seven laps. James Holloway rounded off the podium places.

Jennifer Wilson continued her superb start to the new series with a second successive victory in the Female Open 60 Minutes category. In a field of three riders, Wilson prevailed completing five laps in a time of 46:10, ahead of Ashley Robinson, who managed the same amount of laps but in 47:38. Laina Medeiros managed to complete a lap less in 56:11.

There was also delight for Sherman Darrell, who proved victorious in the Open Male 30 Minute category, completing four laps in 32:27. Kent Richardson claimed second place, completing the same laps in 35:53, with Maceo Dill rounding out the top three, having also managed four laps in an overall time of 34:23.

Jennifer Lightbourne again proved the rider to beat as she maintained her perfect run of form in the Open Female 30 Minute category. Four of the five competitors completed four laps, but it was Lightbourne who prevailed in a time of 38:43, just a second ahead of Christine Soutter. Zina Jones completed the podium places.

Jackson Langley also made it back-to-back victories in the Male 13 to 16 division, completing four laps of the shorter course in a time of 30:33. Gordon Smith settled for second, completing the same amount of laps in 31:10, slightly more than three minutes ahead of Joshua Wilson.

As the sole competitor in the corresponding female age group race, Skye Ferguson completed three laps in a time of 35:30.

It proved a close-fought race in the Male 12 and under division, where just nine seconds separated the top two riders, having both completed three laps. Victory ultimately went to Makao Butterfield in a time of 15:59, pipping Jeon Wolfe, who in turn finished 41 seconds clear of Ray Richardson in third.

Kelsie Wade came out on top in the Female 12 and under division, finishing three laps in a time of 16:03, ahead of Daisy Langley (18:15) and Journee Belboa (21:17).
