Congratulations Mathew Waghorn for your hard fought battle to defend your Oceania Under 19 MTB title.
First out of the blocks Mathew flew up the hill with the rest of the field behind and New Zealands U19 National champion Anton Cooper hot on his heels. A leap frog battle followed with Anton and Mathew out front. An unfortunate mishap with a bottle change followed by a couple of slips on sections of the technical trail let Anton get ahead, with an eventual finish for Mathew only 53 seconds behind Anton and over 3 mins on the rest of the field. WELL DONE MATHEW... fingers crossed for another Worlds team selection.
