In his first season in Under 23 Cameron Wright has ridden his way into the Top 20 in the Under 23 Men at the 2019 UCI MTB World Championships in Mont Sainte-Anne, Canada on Friday.
The Giant Factory sponsored rider was one of four Australians to line up in the Under 23 race along with national champion Matthew Dinham, Luke Brame and Callum Carson.
The 2017 junior world champion was going to leave nothing to chance in the field of 76 rirders.
“Had a really good start and coming down La Beatrice was just chaotic and I had a little bit of a slip up but stayed composed and rode my own race.”
“I’m pretty stoked with 18th”.
It was also a good result for Matthew Dinham who a less than ideal lead in to Friday racing.
“I was looking to build into this world champs and two heavy falls in Basel, Swiss Cup and here in practice knocked me back a bit, but I’m very happy to pull out my best result of the season.”
Carson, who is in his last year in the Under 23’s made sure it would be a championships to remember to finish on the lead lap behind eventual winner Romanian Vlad Dascalu.
“Pretty insane first lap and was out the back and I just kept consistent and picked people off and turned out I finished 39th in the end.”
