Lisa Mathison and Tony Myatt take the Solo GC and QLD Category Series wins at Sugar Bag

The QLD Series of Rocky Trail’s Shimano Mountain Bike Grand Prix wrapped up at Sugar Bag MTB Park supported by Sunshine Coast Council.

The relatively short but tough course had the competitors digging deep into their endurance skills for the 4 hour lap race. The event was endorsed by the CORCA club. The target lap times in these events are anywhere between 30 and 50 minutes across the field of first-timers between the tap and those having trained a lifetime for power output.

Solos battle for race titles

The major titles in the four hour competition are the General Classification for Solo Riders as well as Sprint and KOM/QOM accolades. The Sugar Bag event had riders claim podiums across a wide age range.

In the women’s, Brisbane’s Lisa Mathison claimed the Solo GC win with 8 laps completed in 4:32.33 as well as the fastest female lap time with 33:12min. The 37-year old is a former 2x junior XCO World Champion and represented Australia in the 2004 Athens Olympics. With two wins in the Shimano MTB GP at Logan and this podium at Sugar Bag, Mathison is the 30-39 Female Solo QLD Series winner.
