Round 5 of the Queensland Enduro Series saw riders hit the gravity trails of Boomerang Farm Bike Park, the home of free ride in South East Queensland. There was no shortage of features with plenty of speed, air and style lighting up the lens’ of the many photographers on site….
Boomerang Farm Bike Park has grown leaps in bounds since its inception and the ride location is certainly establishing itself as the best place to throw a leg over your steed in South East Queensland. This year saw the first Queensland Series Enduro round being held at the bike park and their was no shortage of epic trails on offer for the riders. Outlook Riders Alliance did a great job hosting their first major Enduro event and White Lightning Events provided more epic timing as usual.
The stages were set with six stages encompassing most of Boomerang Farm’s trails, slotted into the race schedule. The more pedal-orientated Green Machine and Enduropedia provided a chance for riders with more fitness to push the times out, whilst DH2, Riccos and Rodneys provided more technical descents. Mini Mega was the stand-out trail with no shortage of features, shark fins, big drops and jumps adorning the trail from top to bottom; always an epic trail that left a smile on every riders dial.
The business end of the day saw Ryan Leutton take the top step in the Elite Men’s category, Laura Craft dominated Elite women, Expert Men was won by Jake Evans and Daniel Hall took the win in Sport Men. Masters 1/2 saw Bobby Blinco win again with Alexandra Testud taking the top step in the Womens category. Masters 3/4 had Damo Liddy and Michelle Gane beat the field, with the 50+ categories being won by Craig Isaacs and Jane McDonald.
The biggest categories of the day though were our rising Junior riders, with U17 fielding 37 riders across the men’s and women’s categories and U15 fielding 31 riders. Not only were the Juniors there and present, but they were certainly sending the features without fear. Unfortunately there were a couple of injuries and hopefully everyone heals well and is back on the bike in no time. Check out the Junior winners below…
Another epic round of the Queensland Enduro Series is done and dusted and Boomerang Farm have set a new standard for the Queensland Enduro Series. The next round takes us to Atherton in far North Queensland and the tropic weather should pose a new challenge….
