Casey Brown wins Canadian Downhill Mountain Biking Championship
Revelstoke’s Casey Brown was victorious in the downhill at the Canadian Mountain Biking Championships in Mont Ste. Anne, Quebec, last Sunday.
Brown finished the course in 5:12.016, for a nearly-five second victory over runner-up Lauren Rosser.
“It went really good. Pulled it off with the win today. The track conditions were great, and dried up quite a bit so I was able to run with a higher tire pressure,” said Brown who received her first Canadian Champion jersey. “I am gonna go to Crankworx [in Whistler] to do a couple of races and then to world champs.”
Last year Brown finished second behind Clare Buchar. Matt Beer of Newfoundland won the men’s competition.
