Local riders at nationals

Local Riders take on the nationals
Collie brothers Declan and Jack O'Conner have been selected for the Western Australian Junior State Team. They are currently in Bright Victoria competing in the 2016 Australian Mountain Bike Championships. Both riders are competing in the downhill event and are looking to gain valuable experience at national standard.

The downhill track in Bright is longer and steeper compared to the local dh tracks the boys are used to and have undergone special training to adapt to the new conditions. Storms are setting up a wet weekend for the event which will make for slippery conditions for everyone.

Rory their father gave a brief " By all accounts going very well so far, despite a shaky start with big storms on arrival. Boys have had a few runs on the track and love it."

With some of the worlds best riders there like Sam Hill to rub shoulders with, they are picking up good experience to continue their career in the sport.

Racing begins March Sunday 20th 1pm EST

Best of luck.
