A great start to the season for Hutchinson UR riders Mick Hannah and Tracey Hannah on the new Polygon bikes as they become 2013 Australian National Champs!

Some close racing going on at a wet and muddy Mt Stromlo, Canberra (you know, the place they had the World Champs in 2009 when Peaty won), less than 0.64 seconds separating 2nd and 5th!

How long has it been since we’ve seen riders racing XC one day and DH the next? Gravesy did just that, finishing 7th in the XC and 2nd in the DH. Good Enduro training for the lad. Chris the Karver Kovarik is back on it, and Troy Brosnan looks like he’s coming back to form after his serious injury.

1. Mick Hannah 2:21.26
2. Jared Graves 2:23.09
3. Sam Hill 2:23.48
4. Chris Kovarik 2:23.67
5. Troy Brosnan 2:23.73

    Wow yeah – blast from the past there with McCarroll in 12th. Was wondering recently what happened to him… Some great sections in the Sprung vids with him and Minnaar on the Global team nailing DH and Dual tracks around the world.
