Leanna Curtis (GreenValleys MTB Club) and Thomas Locke (Garigal Gorillas MTB Club) have won the 2022 AusCycling Elite Downhill State Championships – New South Wales at GreenValleys Mountain Bike Park, Tongarra on Sunday.

Nineteen-year-old Locke, who divides his time between Sydney and Canberra, narrowly edged out Tim Eaton and Josh Arcus for the men’s title. Locke posted a winning run of 1:53.286, just six-tenths quicker than Eaton and a second ahead of Arcus.

Curtis, the reigning Gravity Enduro National Champion, outclassed her field with a run of 2:22.289, comfortably beating Ashleigh Weinert and Tash Bonney to the top step. After recovering from a fractured tibia, it’s a promising sign for Curtis ahead of her GE title defence in October.
