Ten King’s Lynn MTB Club members traveled down to Carver Barracks, Essex for Round 2 of the Mud Sweat and Gears mountain bike cross country race series.

On this very technical, testing course, members produced some fantastic results.

Husband and wife Paul and Emily Quantrill had a very successful day, both winning their categories and gaining maximum points to take into the next round.

In the under 9’s, 7-year-old Joe Allen gained his first podium place, coming third – a really good result as Joe was one of the youngest riders in that category. Russell Miller took second and a place on the podium in the Grand Veterans class.

Rob Smithers, stepping up a class at this round, rode the longer race with the more experienced riders, but still managed a credible 12th place.

Results for MTB riders were, Grand Veterans Sport Male: 2nd Russell Miller, 7th James Murphy, 12th Rob Smithers, 17th Dave Penny. Open Male Under 9’s: 1st Paul Quantrill, 3rd Joe Allen, 18th Dom Clarke, 22nd Linley Gales, 36th Kevin Beals. Sport Female: 1st Emily Quantrill

Round 3 is at Henham Park, Suffolk on April 12.
