After the biggest year of racing in Australia's history we can now declare the fastest riders in Australia. Congratulations to:



After playing second fiddle to Ben Hay throughout 2011, Cam Kite finally broke through with solid performances throughout 2012. In contrast, Ben did relatively poorly at Keira and Newton's and and from that point on could never catch Cam's lead. These two guys are the mainstays of the Australian race circuit, each attending 10 races throughout the year.

Dejan Djukic started the year as a grom and ended it as the third ranked Australian downhiller. In fourth, Rob McWhinnie spent as much time organising races as he did racing, and never failed to threaten a win regardless of the quality of the opposition.

After trailing Gemma Holland for most of the year, Maga McWhinnie finally pipped her on the last race of the year to become the Women's champ. Between racing seven races in Australia, Maga also raced on the international circuit, and ranked 5th in the world over 2012.

Jayden Mitchell arrived at Mt Keira in April relatively unknown outside his hometown of Adelaide, but that all changed after winning the Junior division and placing fourth in the Opens, and then backing that up with another win in the Juniors at Newton's. The Adelaide groms showed themselves to be a force overall along with the NSW groms, while Queensland's Josh Evans and Lewis Carroll rounded out the top 10.

Slalom in 2012 was dominated by the Melbourne crew, with Marty Kent a clear step better than the rest. Jet-setting Nick Sable took second, and Hamish Cheyne third.

Most of the favourites failed to rank highly. Jackson Shapiera was injured for most of the year, while Steve Daddow, Haggy Strom, Nathan Paff and Paul Shaddock stayed home rather than travel to the big races.

Credit is due to Elliot Peet for the Photo of Kam. He took that at Noosa Hillclimb back in the December of 2011.
