Blair and King claim All Mountain Omnium titles

Carlson, King descend to super D victories

The afternoon's Super D was a time trial from top to bottom, along a steep and challenging 2.0 km course. The elite riders were tipped to come in just below the four-minute mark. Only Joshua Carlson was able to sneak inside the mark with an impressive time of 3:56. Carlson was one of the few riders in the elite field with international experience in the super D format and lived up to the pre-race favorite tag. Local rider Dave Nairn took second ahead of Ben Henderson.

There were no surprises in the elite women's field; Jenni King continued her weekend of domination taking out the super D. On Saturday she "had no idea what Super D was" but it made no difference. The race for second place was very close with Jodie Willett just edging out a fast finishing Rosemary Barnes for third.

The fastest U23 rider was Jack Haig. Cameron Ivory came out in front of Mitchell Codner for second by under a second.

Omnium

After a tough weekend of racing, it was Saturday's cross country that decided the podium for the All Mountain Cup. In all elite categories the cross country winner walked away with the All Mountain Cup series leader plate. Luke Fetch will be the rider to watch in the U23 category throughout the season. Both Blair and King had strong performances that bode well for the remaindered on the All Mountain Cup.

Blair had a nervous day of race. "I was relieved to take the overall victory. The super D and eliminator were short but potentially dangerous disciplines. I was happy to make it into the final of the eliminator, it was a good way to not just be completely conservative and get our there and have some fun racing."

The super D was a high stakes race, a crash or puncture could have devastating consequences. Blair was "definitely scared about keeping it upright in the super D, I was just happy to get down and post an OK time and not take too many risks."

The next round of the All Mountain Cup will be at Mt Buller on January 21-22.
