With Fox Creek still out of action after a massive bush fire, the 2020 State Championships were held at Willunga Hill in the South of Adelaide. With a stacked field of world cup and local DH legends, the top of the timing sheets would be closer than any other year. Connor Fearon would prevail from Steve Gebert with Conor Clancy taking a close 3rd. First-year elite Eddie Herft pushed hard in 4th and will be one to watch in the future. In the women's Shelly Flood took another elite title from newcomer Miguelita Prinsloo with Philippa Norton in 3rd.

A huge thanks go out to all the crew at Inside Line for running a brilliant event as always.
