[Updated with photos] 56 racers competed during the Fat Tire Massive Mountain Bike Series at Hog Bay Park this weekend.

A spokesperson said, “Under clearing skies, Hog Bay park hosted 56 racers in the second last points race for the Fat Tire Massive Mountain Bike Series. With only one race to go, several positions are up in the air as the results are best 6 out of 7 races. The current points standings will be posted in the next few days.

“A new trail addition on the western coastline [Thanks to FTM and RMS] was raced by the Open 60 classes for the first time today. The muddy conditions made it less than stellar but the tight switchbacks dried a bit and became more rideable as the day cleared.


.

“In the 13 to 15 class, Enshe-Nico made it clear that he wasn’t going to let his mechanical issues from race 5 haunt him. He set a blistering pace following closely o the heels of the open 60 lead rider and quickly opened up a 50 second lead. At the end, he finished a solid minute ahead of Gordon Smith with Rory Fleming taking a close third place.

“For a full review of the results please visit our website; fattiremassive.com or look us up on Facebook and Instagram. Please note that next week there is a Non FTM, mountain bike 50k endurance race being held at Ferry Reach. Signup is on racedayworld.com.

    Sadly the new trails they have opened up are also being used by guys on dirt bikes, tearing up the soil and contributing to erosion. I hope they will assist in trail maintenance by putting in crosswise logs after the races to slow this erosion which seriously detracts from the park.
    Hog Bay needs some love as it’s being overrun by pepper and casuarina.
