DH biker in the air

Queenstown was well represented at the recent national championships with local and club member Kate Fluker taking out the women's elite XC title from Olympian Karen Hanlen.  Meanwhile in the downhill titles there were a bevy of Quenstown racers on the podium with Alanna Columb and Harriet Latchem taking out first and second respectively in the women's elite DH race.  Queenstown based pro rider George Brannigan (Trek Factory Team) took out the mens elite title. In the under-17 DH local Queenstowner Mathew Gillan came in 2nd while in the masters DH local master Chris Mancey came in a well deserved 3rd. Bloody good job to all!
