Leov, Jonnier win in Dunedin

Justin Leov and Sabrina Jonnier won the elite downhill races in Dunedin as part of round two of the New Zealand Downhill Mountain Bike Cup.

An unfortunate injury to first round winner Sam Blenkinsop during the practice day robbed the field of what would probably have been a close contest with former teammate Leov.

Leov, racing at home, won the race by about two seconds ahead of 2006 Junior World Champion Cameron Cole. Current Junior World Champion Brook MacDonald put on a great display of controlled riding to seed first and ride as last starter for the afternoon race start, but dispite shaving four seconds off his seeding time, he had to settle for third place.

Frenchwoman Sabrina Jonnier again showed her 2009 World Cup winning pedigree to comfortably win the elite women's race, this time over Rotorua's Gabby Molloy.

The event, hosted by Mountain Bike Otago, served as a dress rehearsal for the Oceania Mountain Bike Championships, which will return to the venue in March.

The next round of the New Zealand Mountain Bike Cup will move to Nelson next weekend, January 24.
