Another win for Adam!
Adam Blazevic placed 8th in the A Grade Men’s competition finishing at the line with the 7th place finisher.
The A Grade Men’s race completed 11 laps of the 2.2 km track where Adam managed to achieve the second fastest lap for the day, only 3 seconds behind the fastest lap time. (According to Strava records). Another astounding effort for a modest Year 10 student in the elite men’s cycling competition. Please click here for further information.

Courtney Snowball came second in the state VSCC finals in Bendigo on Saturday. She was up against some pretty stiff competition and beat a top aged sponsored rider who she’s never been able to beat before, to bring home silver. The girl that won is also a sponsored rider so Courtney was in good company.
Courtney was also the second placed rider on aggregate over the series which is a great achievement.
