New Zealand’s Samara Sheppard and Australia’s Kyle Ward win final stage and capture elite women’s and men’s Snowies Mountain Bike Festival titles…

5s-winners-KW-SS-zoomSNOWY MOUNTAINS, NSW-Wellington’s Samara Sheppard (NZL) raced to a clean sweep of all five stages at the three-day Snowies Mountain Bike Festival this Valentine’s Day weekend at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa & Thredbo Resort in the iconic Snowy Mountains of New South Wales.

The 25-year-old Kiwi dominated each stage including the fifth – and final – 45-kilometre marathon on Sunday afternoon after winning the 20.5km Gravity Check descent just hours earlier.

“I was really happy to get out in front and get some clean track and find my rhythm,” said Sheppard. “It was actually great having a lot of the men around as well to keep pushing you along and keeping you focused so I was really happy with the last stage and getting to the finish still in the yellow.

“No mechanicals, no crashes… so we’ve had a good weekend.”

Sheppard topped general classification (GC) more than 12 minutes over her nearest rival – international endurance superstar Renata Bucher (SUI) – who finished third overall last year and second on every stage over the weekend. Aussie Cristy Henderson finished third on the final stage and on GC.

In elite men’s action, Kyle Ward (AUS), who won stages 1, 2 and 4, rode to his fourth win of the race by defeating stage 3 winner and last year’s champion Andrew Blair (Specialized Racing Australia) by nearly three and a half minutes.

5s-podium-600x400“I didn’t really have a race plan for that one other than I wanted to make sure I stayed in the yellow jersey until the end of it,” said Ward. “But it’s kind of hard because when you think about the race duration it’s 45km so you can’t really attack it like the other ones.

“In hindsight it’s equal amount of race time for that one event really from what we have done on the other two days, so in terms of tactics I was happy to lead some of the first lap and just keep it under wraps with a steady tempo.”

Ward’s strategy was to stay on the rear wheel of Blair, who trailed Ward on GC by a minute and a half going into the final leg.

“I knew it was going to be up to ‘Blairy’ to make up the time so I just put the ball in his court and he took the front on the second lap and then I took an opportunity on the third and final lap going into the first climb through transition,” he explained.

“I saw a gap open up and took my chance and stayed away for the rest of the lap…just happy to cross the line and finish off a big weekend of racing.”

For Blair, second place was bittersweet for the inaugural winner, but overall he is pleased with his valiant performance.

s5-KW-AB-600x400“I was happy to win [stage 3] and it was the only stage I come away with,” said Blair. “But other than that I was consistently second behind Kyle and I’m happy with that.

Going into the final stage, Blair still held out hope for a win although he admits the odds were against him.

“Anything can happen and I know that going into a fairly flat 50km stage with a lot of wind and with a deficit like a minute and a half that the pressure is on me to try and attack Kyle,” he explained. “There is a reason why he’s got a minute and a half cause he’s the strongest guy and so the odds are stacked against you and all you can do is put your cards on the table and hope it all works out.

“I took a couple of risks on the descents but it wasn’t enough to get away from Kyle, and he sort of sat on my wheel for a couple of laps and then attacked me with one to go and it was all over from there – but I gave it a shot.”

This year’s race still featured an Alpine start line at 1,260 metres in elevation, as well as 100 kilometres of rugged mountain terrain, technical single track, monstrous ascents, daring descents and, of course, a hefty $10,000 cash prize pool.

Elite and amateur riders alike faced a barrage of mountain biking disciplines, including a 5.5km time trial, 21.5km Thredbo Summit Smash, 6km Thredbo All Mountain Descent, the Gravity Check and the 45k marathon.

Kiwi Samara Sheppard and Aussie Kyle Ward win stage 4 and extend overall lead on general classification at the 2016 Snowies Mountain Bike Festival…

s4-podiumSNOWY MOUNTAINS, NSW-It was a happy start to St. Valentine’s Day in the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales for Samara Sheppard (NZL) and Kyle Ward (AUS) as they claim stage 4 and continued to hold on to their overall lead at the 2016 Snowies Mountain Bike Festival on Sunday.

For the 25-year-old Kiwi, the 20.5-kilometre Gravity Check descent victory marks her fourth straight win in the three-day, five-stage mountain bike race in the Australia's High Country.

Sheppard’s closest rival, international endurance superstar Renata Bucher (SUI), once again finished runner up with Zoe Cuthbert claiming her third podium finish on the day.

“We had mass start up a steep climb and had a couple of tight corners,” said Sheppard. “I had a good start and then Renata had a good inside line on the last corner so she led into the single trail and I managed to pass her on the first climb and then rode my own tempo to the finish”

For Ward, who captured the first two stages in convincing fashion, returns to the top of the podium after finishing third on stage 3 behind fellow New South Wales native Guy Frail and defending champion Andrew Blair (Specialized Racing Australia).

The win gives the 23-year-old a minute and a half lead over Blair, a two-time Australian XCM champion and 2014 Commonwealth Games representative, on general classification. Victoria’s Sebastian Jayne finished third on the stage.

s4-KW-600X400But even with a solid lead, Ward knows that the race is still up for grabs with the 45km marathon remaining on Sunday afternoon.

“We might have done four stages now, but it only equates to two and a half hours and the race this afternoon is going to be equal duration,” explained Ward. “So there’s still 50 percent of the overall GC yet to be contended, so it’s going to be a big event this afternoon.”

Sheppard, who leads Bucher by over three minutes, concurred.

“My closest competitor is a really strong mountain bike rider so I’m not going to underestimate her,” admitted Sheppard. “But I feel like I haven’t overly extended myself too much, so I’m just going to go out there and give it everything I’ve got and empty the tank and hope for the best.”

New Zealand’s Samara Sheppard makes it three straight to remain atop the elite women’s leader board, as defending champion Andy Blair claims stage 3 and bites into Kyle Ward’s elite men’s lead at the Snowies Mountain Bike Festival…

s3-SS-600x400SNOWY MOUNTAINS, NSW-Samara Sheppard (NZL) is riding a hot streak at the moment after capturing her third consecutive stage to start the second annual Snowies Mountain Bike Festival at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa in the iconic Snowy Mountains of New South Wales on Saturday afternoon.

The 25-year-old Wellington native once again downed last year’s third-place finisher Renata Bucher (SUI), who finished second for the third time, on the 6-kilometre Thredbo All Mountain Descent stage 3 to tighten her grip on the elite women’s overall lead with just two stages remaining in the three-day, five-stage mountain bike race hosted by In2Adventure. Australian Zoe Cuthbert (ACT) finished third.

The win increases Sheppard’s lead (1:40:39) over Bucher (1:43.17) by more than 3 minutes on Bucher and by 6 minutes on Australian Cristy Henderson (1:46:43).

In elite men’s action, defending champion Andy Blair (Specialized Racing Australia) returned to the podium after being runner up in the first two stages to current race leader Kyle Ward (AUS). The two-time Australian XCM champion and 2014 Commonwealth Games representative crossed the line in a time of 14 minutes 34 seconds, 14 seconds ahead of fellow Australian Guy Frail. Ward finished third (14:51).

The win gives Blair (1:26:40) 17 valuable seconds back on Ward (1:24:59), who now leads by less than two minutes with only two stages remaining, including the 20.5km Gravity Check descent and 45km XCM on the final day of racing.

Kyle Ward and Samara Sheppard win back-to-back stages to tighten grip on overall lead at Snowies MTB Festival…

s2-podium-600x400SNOWY MOUNTAINS, NSW-Snowies Mountain Bike Festival elite men’s and women’s race leaders Kyle Ward (AUS) and Samara Sheppard (NZL) increased their overall lead after claiming their second straight win on the first of two races on Saturday morning in the iconic Snowy Mountains of New South Wales.

A day after taking the 5.5km stage 1 time trail, the two took out the 21.5km Thredbo Summit Smash before preparing to back up and defend their lead on general classification with the brand new 6km Thredbo All Mountain Descent later in the day.

Ward (56:29) again bested defending champion Andrew Blair (Specialized Racing Australia), who finished second (58:24) for the second straight day, with Sebastian Jayne (Subaru Marathon MTB) rounding out the podium in third (58:25) just one second off the two-time Australian XCM champion and 2014 Commonwealth Games representative.

“The plan was to take it to the other fellas from the gun,” said Ward immediately following the race. “Yesterday afternoon was a solid 5-kilometre lap around Lake Crackenback, but I think in terms of making time over the weekend it was probably one of the harder more technical trails to ride and make more of a difference.”

In elite women’s action, Sheppard (01:08:02) cruised to the finish with a two-minute lead over international endurance star Renata Bucher (SUI), who again took second (01:10:04). Cristy Henderson (AUS) finished third.

s2-bridge“It was a good trail, quite technical and I was really keen to ride it smooth and conserve some energy,” Sheppard told In2Adventure. “Kyle had a killer start and just got out in front and smashed it.

“I was a little far back sitting on Renata for a while and then passed her,” she continued. “I then found my rhythm and just rode to the end.”

Currently Ward holds a 1 minute 28 second lead over Blair on GC, while Sheppard is 2:10 on Bucher.

Two stages remain following Saturday’s action, including the 20.5km Gravity Check descent and 45km XCM closes out the final day of racing in the three-day, five-stage mountain bike festival that is quickly becoming a bucket-list race in just in second year.

Like last year, this year’s race still features an Alpine start line at 1,260 metres in elevation, as well as 100 kilometres of rugged mountain terrain, technical single track, monstrous ascents, daring descents and, of course, a substantial $10,000 cash prize pool.

“I encourage [the other riders] to go crazy and chase me but I think the general approach will be to race smoother,” said Ward regarding his rivals’ strategy on stage 3. “By minimising the risks at least you can show up tomorrow and have a shot but if you lay it down it won’t be too pretty.

“But for me, the strategy was to empty the tanks and leave it on the uphill from Crackenback to Thredbo and try to get a good gap and take that into Downhill Valley Trail and also the marathon stage,” he concluded.

“I think we look pretty good in Yellow at the moment, so may just have to stay in it.”

SNOWY MOUNTAINS, NSW-Australian Kyle Ward and New Zealander Samara Sheppard both time-trialled in to an opening round win and the overall lead at the second annual Snowies Mountain Bike Festival in the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales on Friday evening.

With four stages remaining over the next two days, the stage 1 winners will be looking to hold on to their leaders jerseys in their respective elite men’s and women’s fields.

Stage 1 Podium

Stage 1 Podium

“It’s always nice to start in the leaders jersey as it gives you a bit of confidence,” Ward told In2Adventure following the 5.5-kilometre time trial to start the race. “I’m focusing on watching Andy Blair and his teammate Shaun Lewis as they are always hard to beat around these trails, and Lewis Cressy who was on the podium tonight as well so that will be tight racing.

“There are two youngsters that I always keep an eye on in Guy Frail and Sebastian Jayne, so it’s going to be a good weekend of racing ahead.”

Sheppard agreed.

“Kyle told me to take the stage seriously,” she admitted. “You want to start the tour on a good note, so it’s good motivation for the next few stages to keep wearing the leaders jersey.

“We’ve been here for a week, so we’ve done the valley trail and we did the time trial course before the race, and we’ve done the all mountain trail as well.

“So, we’ve done our research.”

Ward edged two-time Australian XCM champion and last year’s Snowies winner Andrew Blair (Specialized Racing Australia) by three seconds to take the win in a time of 13 minutes 38 seconds. Blair also conceded the opening time trial stage last year before sweeping the final three stages to claim the overall win. Fellow Aussie Lewis Cressy (ONYAbike-Hammer Maxxis) rounded out the podium in third (14:06).

Kyle Ward

In elite women’s action, Sheppard recorded the fastest time of the day (15:47), eight seconds ahead of her “biggest threat” and last year’s third-place finisher Renata Bucher (SUI) in second and followed by Zoe Cuthbert (AUS) in third.

Although the three-day, five-stage event has been extended in 2016, this year’s race still features an Alpine start line at 1,260 metres in elevation, as well as 100 kilometres of rugged mountain terrain, technical single track, monstrous ascents, daring descents and, of course, a substantial $10,000 cash prize pool.

Like last year’s historic event, this year’s race kicked off with a gruelling 5.5km time trial around the scenic bushland surrounding Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa. Following the time trial, the race features the 21.5km Thredbo Summit Smash and the brand new 6km Thredbo All Mountain Descent on Saturday before the 20.5km Gravity Check descent and 45km XCM closes out the final day of racing.

Samara Sheppard

“Today was an interesting stage because you don’t want to lose any time straight up off the box,” said Ward. “Hopefully haven’t spent too much energy going into tomorrow’s stages…followed by Sunday’s two rather difficult stages. So big weekend ahead, but nice to start it off in the leaders jersey.”

SNOWY MOUNTAINS, NSW-Only 2 days remain until mountain bike specialists and off-road endurance enthusiasts stake a spot on the starting grid at the second annual Snowies Mountain Bike Festival this St Valentine’s Day weekend (12-14 February).

Snowies MTB FEstival - Low Res-56-600x400One name already on the start list is reigning champion and pre-race favourite Andrew Blair (Specialized Racing Australia). The two-time Australian national champion and 2014 Commonwealth Games representative is set to defend his title over the three-day, five-stage elite mountain bike race.

“Unlike a lot of mountain bike stage races, there is no single stage at the Snowies MTB Festival that that is the decisive one,” said Blair, who won three of the four stages last year to claim the inaugural title along with his wife of one week, Jenny Fay (IRL), who earned the elite women’s title and a share of the $10,000 prize purse.

“Last year the TVT (Thredbo Valley Trail) descent stage ended up being the stage that decided the race in the men’s event which would have surprised many,” he explained further. “I think any of the five stages could be critical this year and with such variation in the stages you really need to be a good all-rounder to get a good result.

“This makes the race exciting and will keep everyone on their toes.”

With an additional stage and extended race weekend, the event has attracted a who’s who of Australian mountain biking to this year’s event once again held in the picturesque setting of Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa and Thredbo Resort in the iconic Snowy Mountains of New South Wales.

Snowies MTB Festival-17-400x600Aside from Blair, other elite male contenders include Kyle Ward (NSW), Shaun Lewis (Specialized), Tim Fitzpatrick (On Your Bike Echuca), Trent Pons (NSW), Sebastian Jayne (Subaru Marathon MTB), Nathan Russell (Cyclery Northside), Ryan Kyprianou, Lewis Cressy (ONYAbike-Hammer Maxxis) and Mark Cordingley (Team05 Racing).

Ireland’s Jenny Blair (neé Fay), captured the elite women’s crown last year, but it’s Renata Bucher (SWI), Sharon Heap (QLD), Jessica Simpson (NSW), Cristy Henderson (ACT) and Briony Mattocks (Cyclery Northside) who will all be vying for a shot at the title. Other stars to watch include Sara Mills (JetBlack-Pivot), Laura Renshaw (Drift Bikes), Louise Cook (ACT) and one of our ‘Young Guns’ Zoe Cuthbert (ACT).

“It is really hard to train perfectly for an event like this with so many varied stages, as specific training for each one would surely take more time than most of us have,” explained Blair. “I’d say the most important thing would be to get on you mountain bike as much as possible and add in some short hard efforts to your normal training as well as some weekend where you have two solid back-to-back days.”

This year’s race still features an Alpine start line at 1,260 metres in elevation, as well as 100 kilometres of rugged mountain terrain, technical single track, monstrous ascents, daring descents and, of course, a hefty $10,000 cash prize pool.

Snowies MTB FEstival - Low Res-40-600x282 - Copy (2)“The inaugural Snowies Mountain Bike Festival in 2015 was so good it’s hard to believe that it was the first year the stage race had been run and it was one of my favourite races of the year,” Blair told race host In2Adventure. “This is truly a mountain bike race that has everything; iconic location, epic trails, varied fun stages that are challenging yet achievable, friendly atmosphere, beautiful accommodation and no stressful transfers.”

Like last year’s historic event, this year’s race kicks off with a gruelling 5.5km time trial around the scenic bushland surrounding Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa. However, unlike last year, the time trial opens the Festival on Friday evening, leaving the 21.5km Thredbo Summit Smash and the brand new 6km Thredbo All Mountain Descent on Saturday before the 20.5km Gravity Check descent and 45km XCM closes out the final day of racing.

“I am once again looking forward to the TVT descent stage,” admitted Blair. “This trail has become immensely popular for very good reason, the downside of which is that it is almost impossible to ride it fast on a weekend or holiday period (when we can get to the mountains).

Snowies MTB Festival-15-600x400“Having the opportunity to race this trail knowing that it is closed off to the public made this stage last year probably the most enjoyable hour of riding I did in 2015. I can’t wait to do it again.”

The Snowies Mountain Bike Festival is not just for elite riders. The Snowies will also be a testing event for age group solo riders, as well as for those looking for a slightly less demanding challenge. Riders can take part in teams of two or three riders, with one team member taking on different stages of the race. Riders can also take part in the 45km, 30km or 15km XC MTB on Sunday, choosing the distance most suited to their ability.

“With over 50 percent of entries sold on the first day and a continuous flow of entries over the past few weeks, numbers have already surpassed last year figures,” said In2Adventure event director Robyn Lazenby. “This is such exciting news for a festival in only its second year, but is testament to the standard of mountain biking that the Snowy Mountains Region has to offer riders, especially at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa and Thredbo Resort.

“It’s going to be a spectacular few days and, like last year we have a few surprises planned to create a really special experience for all riders.”

One of the event hubs, Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa will offer competitors and spectators use of the resort with properties from studios to three bedroom apartments covering all budgets and tastes. And the other, Thredbo Resort also has a wide range of accommodation and activities, giving visitors a perfect base to explore this spectacular part of NSW.
