Three Albany mountain bike riders notched wins in round six of the WA Gravity Enduro Series at Three Chillies Farm in Chittering, north-east of Perth on Sunday.

Rising star Corben Weinert dominated the under-19 men’s category with a commanding victory by 52.96 seconds for the day.

Nine riders from the Great Southern competed against some of the State’s best riders and several finished on the podium in their respective categories.

Each rider in the under-19 men’s division took part in five different races and their times from each race were added up to determine their total time and finishing position at the event.

Weinert won each race to finish on a total time of 11min.50.97sec ahead of Mitchell Willock (12.43:93) and Seth Sanderson (13.09:83)

Jessica Waldron won the under-19 women’s event against her sole rival Halle Amundsen.

Competing in four of the five races, Waldron finished narrowly ahead of Amundsen in a time of 12.41:49.

Dinah Roecker was a convincing winner of the 45-plus women category while fellow Albany rider Dora Adeline finished just outside the podium in fourth position.

Roecker finished in a time of 13.03:56 to win by more than 47 seconds while Adeline recorded a time of 14.51:66.

Abbey and Harper O’Donnell finished second in their respective under-15 events.

Harper finished just over 25 seconds behind the winner at the end of four events while Abbey was just over two minutes off her sole rival at the conclusion of four races.

Impressive youngster Hayden Kinnear finished fourth in the open men’s category, just over 30 seconds behind the winner after riding in all five races.

Kinnear finished in 12.03:39 while Denmark rider Kaiden Godden was back in 29th position in the 36-person field.

Paul O’Donnell finished 29th in the 40-49 men’s category after competing in all five events.
