The 4th race of the Malta Mountain Bike Association National Point Series ( MMBA NPS ) was held last Wednesday. The race, held in Selmun, included a very technical downhill section and tough climbs around the characteristic clay slopes of the area.  The race proved to be a two man show with Mark Bonnici ( Agones Sfc ‘Pedal Power’ )  winning and Maurice Formosa ( The Cyclist ) placing second.  Bonnici set a blistering pace right from the start to gain a sustainable advantage on his rivals. He continued to gain on the clay downhills and in the technical uphill. Formosa  managed to bridge the gap on the second uphill of the lap and the duo together managed to build an extensive lead on their rivals.  Jason Vella (Team Greens) placed  third after an impressive comeback. Stpehania Magri  ( Agones Sfc ‘Pedal Power’ )  won  the female category and Liran Ben-Ari ( Agones Sfc ‘Pedal Power’ )  won the sport category.  The 5th race of the series which will also be the MMBA National Championsip 2013 will be held on Sunday 30th June at Mizieb.
