2011 MTBO National League kicks off

The Victorian Nuggets made a great start to the 2011 National MTBO League after Round 1 races at Korweinguboora, just south of Daylesford, Victoria.

The area, famous for the 1981 foot-o Australian Championship when it snowed, rained, hailed and showed patches of sunshine, lived up to its reputation with a windy Saturday.  Storms and heavy rain over Saturday night turning some tracks to marshes and slowing down riders on Sunday.

The standings after Round One see Victoria on top with 64 points, a surging Tasmania lead by the Junior Boys in second on 18, with NSW and Qld deadlocked on 14 for 3rd  and WA 5th with 10 points. Round 2 will be in Queensland in late July.
