Cornerstone Christian College’s Jayden Fraser, 17, was named champion of the under-19 division at the sixth WA Gravity Enduro mountain bike round at the weekend.

Riders from around the country gathered in York for the event, in which riders tackled rock drops on rough sections of track, while an urban feel was provided with a section featuring a concrete staircase.

Fraser competed in all seven stages despite nursing a shoulder injury, and stepped up to win the top spot in his division.

He also placed second against Margaret River’s Roly Kyme, 18, in the national rankings.

Fraser began riding just over two years ago, and his progression has been unexpected.

He will join a team of talented young mountain bikers from Cornerstone Christian College who will travel to Perth next week to defend their State title at the State Schools MTB Championships.
