Dave Ludenia and Jess Hoskin win at Jolly Nose MTB Park
The final NSW/ACT race of the 2022 Fox Superflow® gravity enduro series was held at Jolly Nose MTB Park in Port Macquarie’s Queens Lake State Forest. A field of 300 Rocky Trail racers from all over NSW, the ACT as well as QLD and VIC competed in the event supported by local Council and the Hasting Valley Mountain Bike Riders Club.
The Fox Superflow® is Australia’s fastest growing gravity enduro mountain biking event series, established by Rocky Trail Entertainment in 2012. The race offers competitive racing on three to four timed technical descending trails with neutral transition rides, which provides a fun, social yet challenging format. With over a third of the field under 17 years old, the Fox Superflow® has become a playground for juniors with events spread along the Australian East Coast between Rockhampton in the North and Gippsland in Victoria with the biggest events at Stromlo with 800 registered racers.
With one series race to go in VIC in December, Rocky Trail says that the 2022 Fox Superflow® races will have had over 3,800 athletes with 5,500 racer starts compete in the growing series. The event campaigns have already reached over 2 million people via their main communications channels and the estimated impact for local economies, clubs and trail managers around the race venues is over $2.5 million generated by the competitions.
Successful series finale at Jolly Nose
Jolly Nose MTB Park hosted the final series event for the year, one of three trail networks out of the five NSW competitions this year in the State which is looked after by a local club and managed by Forestry Corporation of NSW .
The local riders were proudly showing of their newly groomed trails with many sections and access fire roads having undergone major upgrades as part of a harvesting operation this year. Feedback from some of the visiting competitors, including those from interstate, was that the three race tracks were some of the best in the entire series this year. Mountain bikers have a deep connection to nature and the trails they ride and race on, making Queens Lake State Forest the perfect mountain biking destination.
The organisers from Rocky Trail said that Jolly Nose MTB Park was a truly remarkable example of how the close collaboration between an amazing local club and an engaged land management team like the one at Forestry Corp. can make a huge difference in the smooth coexistence of commercial forestry, nature conservation as well as recreational trail activities like mountain bike riding and racing.
Dave Ludenia wins outright: fastest race time on all three tracks
Dave Ludenia from the Blue Mountains was the outright fastest rider at Jolly Nose MTB Park, clocking in the fastest race time on all three trails. The 33-year old Ludenia claimed the Elite Men’s win with 11:06.3 ahead of Newcastle’s Caleb Agostino and Tom Colley from the Northern Beaches.
However, it was two young Fox Factory Team racers who claimed the outright second and third podium places: the 18-year old Riley Reid from Melbourne took the U19 win in 11:18.4 and local talent Tom Jenkins was the U17 winner in 11:20.0, which secured the NSW/ACT Series title for the 16-year old from Port Macquarie. Jenkins is also en route to take out the Australian Series classification with 4930pts and 11 of the 18 races completed already. Reid is the current U19 Series leader ahead of the two final rounds at Falls Creek.
Fox Superflow® QLD Series Champion Hoskin claims women’s classification
Elite racer Jessica Hoskin had travelled to Jolly Nose MTB Park all the way from the Sunshine Coast. With the QLD title already secured, the 24-year old picked up the women’s win and valuable points for Rocky Trail’s Australian Classification in Port Macquarie.
Outright in second was Sami Rothwell. The 15-year old from Springwood finished all three trails in 13:50.0 and is also the 2022 NSW/ACT Series Champion in the U17’s and said,
“Such a fun time racing in the last round of the Fox Superflow in Jolly Nose! Stoked to take the win over the weekend and the series overall in the under 17 girls! Thanks to everyone for making it a good weekend.”
The Veterans 30+ winner Nancy Frew from the Central Coast is the outright third with a race time of 14:20.7.
