Athlete success at Lorne

Athletes had a very hard winter of training gearing up for the very popular event Amy’s Gran Fondo which is also a qualifying event for the Grand Fondo UCI World Championships, being held next year in Poland. The race is over 120km and over 1000m of climbing starting from Lorne heading inland and then back along the iconic Great Ocean Road.  The weather wasn’t in their favour with wet and windy conditions but much better than the pro’s had on the Saturday. With only Pat missing out on qualifying it was a very succseful event for our athletes and should be very proud of their hard work!
