WHEN it comes to the adrenalin fuelled extreme sport of downhill mountain bike racing the boys don’t have it all their own may.
The girls, too, don’t mind getting down and dirty in the dust, mud and flying pebbles.
At the State Championship round in Lithgow this week Sarah Downey, from Medowie won the elite women’s division to retain her series lead.
She is receiving congratulations from fellow podium finishers Vanessa Thompson, from Yanderra, and Joanne Fox, from Penrith.
The event proved to be a significant boost for the Lithgow economy at the weekend.
