Harrison on top at Mount Clay

WARRNAMBOOL teen Harrison Ernst is the latest rider to claim Warrnambool Mountain Bike Club (WMBC) honours.

Harrison, a 17-year-old Emmanuel College student, won the club’s two-hour enduro at Mount Clay, near Heywood, on Sunday.

He completed six laps of an eight-kilometre course, beating Tim Reddick and Jeremy Anderson, who managed five laps.

Jeremy Sagnol won the junior class by completing four laps of the same course.

Rose Owen was second and Fraser English third, both recording two laps.

Brett Trace was the single-speed class champion for competitors riding bikes with one gear. Trace completed five laps, edging out Michael Ciechowicz.

WMBC committee member David Sagnol said yesterday the enduro attracted 25 riders, slightly below expectations.

“It was part of the South West Games. It was washed out in October so we had to run it again yesterday,” he said.

The TP180, a three-hour enduro at Thunder Point, is the next event on the WMBC calendar, on January 18.
