English defends men's 24-hour world title

Douglas grabs women's Championship

Australians Jason English and Jessica Douglas won the 24 hours of Adrenalin solo world championships this weekend in Canberra, Australia.

In the men's race, English completed 24 laps in less than 24 hours to defend his title from 2009. Cory Wallace (Canada) was second, and Andrew Fellows (Australia) was third, both with 23 laps. Two more Australians Scott Chancellor and Brad Davies rounded out the top five with 22 laps each.

"It's awesome to come back and defend, especially given the quality of the riders," said English to ozdirtcast.com.

"At the start of the day, a lot of us Australians were together and were chasing some Canadian dude racing at a crazy pace," said English. "Eventually, we wound him back in." English bided his time, rode a steady pace, and went on to take the victory

The top four women finished with the same number of laps: 20. Douglas, an Australian, won ahead of fellow Australian Katrin Van der Spiegel and American Eszter Horanyi. Andrea Kuster (Switzerland) was fourth and Erin Greene (New Zealand) completed the top five with 19 laps.

"I tried to keep calm and stick to my race plan," said Douglas to ozdirtcast.com. "I told myself the whole 24 hours that I trained for it and I deserved it. The other girls were amazing."

Douglas, who spent some time in the middle of the night in fourth place, said she a moment of doubt, but she employed the strategy of reminding herself that she'd done a lot of work for this race and deserved to win. She raced a more measured race, waiting for her competition to start to fade, which it eventually did.

Looking exhausted after the finish, she said, "I'm thinking of retiring. I've done 10 24-hour solo races and have won two Australian titles and one world title. But ask me again in a week, and we'll see."
