National Road Cycling Championships – Buninyong 5-7 January, 2017

As usual, our trusty social coordinators Geoff and Stephanie were working as volunteers for Cycling Australia at Buninyong last weekend.

Thanks to Geoff for this report.

Stephanie & Geoff are working hard to ensure the Womens Road Race is the Success it deserves. We have been out as Course  Marshalls most days on busy streets .. stopping traffic.  It was as hot in Lobethal as it was in Mt. Buninyong …39-41 degrees.

Kimberley Conte …The glamorous  35 year old ..Race Director ( Geoff  said she is Lovely ! )   greatly appreciated our efforts in such hot conditions along with all the other workers  The conditions on the longest day  (Saturday ) been  extremely  windy with  heavy short showers.

Never let anybody under estimate the outstanding fitness and endurance of the Girls in UCI level road racing .

The National titles  in Mt Bunninyong  were as exciting and  we  were  pleased to  see  so many of  our favourite  riders win the Australian  jersey.

Tonight we will  see them again and many of the competitors we know well from our years of involvement at the track and road events as the TDU women and men teams will be presented at the  City of Adelaide Tour Village.

There are plenty of cycling paths around Adelaide that  we  are taking advantage of them.
