Mountain bikers in action

Mountain bike free-riders are preparing to hit the Chancery Lane, Christ Church pump track for the second in the Extreme Motion Series this Sunday.

Riders will be gathering from 2 p.m. to practise on the jumps before the competition begins. The first Extreme Motion mountain bike event on January 25 on the Dover, Christ Church basketball court had a good showing with locals and visitors alike stopping to take in the extreme sports action. This Sunday is expected to generate similar interest.

Last month Chad Hercules took the first prize in the mountain bike free-ride segment and Rommel Bourne captured the first prize in the BMX competition. A notable performance, however, was made by Kishmar Straker with a backflip that brought the spectators onto the hard courts to celebrate his fine execution.

His success was however cut short by a tyre blow-out that caused him to retire early from the event. Event organizer Randy “Ells Man” Licorish indicated that he had observed that the mountain biking scene was growing and he was happy with the exposure that the mountain bikers and bmxers were receiving.
