On one of the toughest couses to date Luke Meier-Smith (Propain Factory Enduro) took another overall win in the Under 21 Enduro World Series at Petzen-Jaminca.
He wouldn't be the only Australian on the podium with defending Men's champion Jack Moir (Canyon Collective) showing he was getting back to race pace to ride his way into third.
The five stage, 40km course was bookended by the aptly named Thriller, a savage test of body and bike that encompassed over 1000m of descent.
Meier-Smith would crush his competitors taking the overall win by 35 seconds.
In the women Laura Battista had a consistent day in the saddle to finish in 15th.
