Pump Track Party

After taking a short break under the sun, racers were back on their bike that afternoon to compete in the crowd favourite Rockshox Pump Track Party. A total of 296 competitors signed up to take on the famous pump track event, a race that requires riders to “pump” around the track as fast as possible without a single pedal.

The fastest time of the day was the winner of open men’s. Kye L Kirk completed the track in only 18.898 seconds but was closely followed by Mike Ross who finished in 18.971 seconds.

Legend, Caroline Buchanan took out the open women’s with a time of 20.842 seconds, and the fastest under 18 category was U17 men’s, with Lewis Allbon finishing in 19.548 seconds.
