ADX Depot Tour Goowla – Race Report

We’ve been a bit quiet with racing updates of late whilst athletes have been busy training for their A priority race including coach Michelle.

A tour of this nature is always going to be challenging as it’s not often we get the opportunity to race a team in the world of amateur cycling, most of the time it’s an individual race so being given the opportunity to race for your team is a great challenge both mentally and physically. We started training many of our athletes for this event as early as December, having had athletes do the event we have a lot of data to help prepare them and history of knowing what works and what doesn’t. We had 14 athletes racing across four divisions and on nine different teams with great results by many. The racing was hard and very challenging but all athletes should be proud of their achievements.
