Bikers take on mountain terrain

IT WAS four hours of uphill torture and downhill thrills for 90 riders who took on the mountain bike enduro on Sunday.

A mixture of two-man teams and solo riders took on the torture test.

The winners of the solo men's race was Michael Illing of Brisbane.

Illing completed nine laps of the seven and a half kilometre track in the four hours.

Amanda Hendry won the women's race completing six laps in the same time.

Gympie rider Matthew Hunter finished 19th in the open mens.

Another Gympie rider Andrew McLaughlin finished seventh in the solo male over 40 while former Gympie Sport star of the Year Sean Bekkers finished first as part of the Ay Up Racing Elite team.
