Gozo’s Stefan Scerri wins National Mountain Bike Championship

Malta Mountain Bike association hosted the National Championships, which were held in Nadur and Daħlet Qorrot in Gozo.

Riders embarked on a difficult route and the narrow, single file lanes resulted in riders rushing to take the lead. The Elite category was dominated by none other than Stefan Scerri and Brandon Sultana, who kept shifting between first and second place throughout the whole race.
However, it was Gozitan rider Scerri who made it to the finish line first and was crowned champion of the competition for the very first time.

Marie Claire Aquilina placed first in the women’s category.

“Gozo has been producing some good quality and enthusiastic riders who have regularly participated in this year’s MMBA Summer Cup.  It was only fitting that the last Cross Country Race for 2021 would take place in there. In spite of the difficult route, one could see participants enthusiastic about the course. This augurs well for future events in Gozo. This, together with the cooperation with cycling clubs would certainly enable the sport to reach higher targets” explained MMBA President Pierre Zammit Endrich at the end of the race.
