     August 28, 2006 — Duncan Sturz / Kelsey McIntosh

The 10th Annual Dalvay by the Sea - Red Mud Mountain Mayhem results were a huge success for Cycling PEI this past weekend at the Brookvale Nordic Centre, Executive Director Kelsey McIntosh states. ?We were very happy to have this classic event sanctioned as the 2006 Atlantic Mountain Bike Championships. Not only did we surpass last years great numbers with over 165 entries, our PEI riders took home 25 podiums including 2 Atlantic MtB titles.? Red Mud continues to show why it is known as a mountain biking tradition in the Maritimes. Over the past decade this event has grown to become one of the largest events in Eastern Canada, and a magnet for both elite racers and cycling families from across the region.

During the weekend the PEI teams of Dalvay by the Sea/Taylor?s Garage Tech-Net (DT) and the Rigid Riders (RR) walked away with 11 & 9 podiums respectively. Dalvay/Taylor?s Michelle Thompson (XWMB ? 54 minutes, 9 seconds) and Duncan Sturz (XMJ.E ? 1 hour, 27 minutes, 8 seconds) both won their category at the 2006 Atlantic Mountain Bike Championships.
