    Pattaya mountain bike challenge - Pratamnak Mountain

    Sattayanan is top female rider at Pattaya mountain bike challenge

    Narisa Nitikarn
    Sattayanan Updulkaree, who won a silver medal at the 23rd Sea Games in the Philippines, was again on top form at the Pattaya Mountain Bike Downtown 2007 competition, held May 12-13 at the Chalermprakiat Public Park on Pratamnak Mountain. Sattayanan, representing the Or Bor Jor Chainat Team, was the winner in the general female category in Pattaya after finishing just 4 seconds in front of her closest rival.

    The event provided a great spectacle for the many fans (both MTB enthusiasts and those just curious) who turned up to cheer the riders on - with the course taking the competitors down a tricky but scenic hillside route that included many obstacles.
    The competition was staged over two days with each rider having to make timed runs down the mountain. Unfortunately, following some inclement weather on the Sunday, the final run had to be cancelled halfway through due to the dangerous, slippery condition of the course, with a wooden bridge on the last curve in particular causing problems for all the competitors. The upshot was that 40 riders had to be judged purely on their first run times from the first day.
    Aside from Sattayanan, the results in the other categories were as follows: Downhill A winner Tinnapop Riyaparn from the Crazy Gang Team; Downhill B winner Pornthep Jommuang from the Puimenthong AREA 51 Team; Free Ride winner Anusorn Sontirat from the Or-Bor-Jor Chainat Team; Hard Tail winner Warawut Kontiang from the Or-Bor-Jor Chainat Team; Youth (not more than 15 years of age) winner Saharat Maytasompob from the Crazy Gang Team; Youth (not more than 18 years of age) winner Chatchai Jarupeng from the Or-Bor-Jor Chainat Team; 40 years and older category winner Montree Boonsanae from the Chor. Namchai Crazy Gang Pattaya Team; 30-39 years of age category winner Thitipong Sribunga; and in the more than 85 kilogram category the winner was Mr. Padungpong Tejayaeng from the Sankampaeng Chiang Mai Puimenthong Team.
