Anthony Spencer was the lone Mountain Bike rider who finished in an amazing 25 minutes, 35:25 which easily earned him third place overall.

In the junior division, Justin Solomon made light work of his four competitors, completing the course in a time of 28 minutes, 27:53 seconds. Newcomer Richardo Jones also put in a very impressive ride, placing second with at time of 32 minutes, 04:66. Barney Nockholds placed third in 34:17:06, with Melvin Knight in fourth 43:44:75 and Raffique Pope in fifth with 50:35:18.
