Kavin Smith extended his lead at the top of the FatTire Massive Mountain Bike series with a close-fought win in the third leg at Lagoon Park, Sandys, on Sunday.

Smith was one of six men to complete eight laps of the punishing course but did it in a time three seconds quicker than Alan Potts, his closest rival in the overall standings, to pick up another series victory with James Holloway finishing a good third.

The female open race was won by Pansy Olander, who was one of two women to complete six laps of the course alongside Jennifer Wilson but Olander had nearly three minutes to spare over her biggest challenger with Ashley Robinson rounding off the podium finishers.

The open male 30-minute category was also hotly contested with six riders completing four laps in the allotted time but victory went to Daniel Ringer, who beat Justin Horsfall and Dave Wolffe. Florence Pedro came out on top in the female 30-minute race.

There were 15 entrants in the male 13-16 age group and the race brought the closest finish of the morning when Gordon Smith beat Zach Moniz by little more than a second. Jens Drea finished third.

Kelise Wade was victorious in the girls 13-16 age group with Ray Richardson a clear winner in the boys 9-12 age group.
