English Defends His Crown

Words by Chris Southwood | Images by Damian Breach

The Scott 24Hr Australian Mountain Bike Championships took place in brutal conditions at Mt Stromlo ACT over the weekend.

In one of the toughest 24hr races in recent history, Jason English proved definitively that he is still the man to beat when it comes to solo suffering. English rode 402km over 31 laps to finish 22 minutes ahead of British National Champion, Matt Page. Liz Smith, reigning Aussie National 24hr Solo Champion, took out the women’s solo title with 23 laps under her belt, an hour ahead of Philippa Rostan.

A full listing of results can be found on www.onlineresults.com.au and we’ll have an in-depth Scott 24hr feature posted here on Flow Mountain Bike shortly.
