Towards the end of 2012, we put the call out to cyclists around Melbourne and Victoria to apply to join Bicycle Network’s first official cycling team. The volume of applications received made it clear that the riding public was just as excited by the opportunity to represent the organisation as we were to give it to them. After reviewing all 300 applications, we are excited to announce that the following four riders will represent us on road in 2013:
- Cameron Clamp (Hawthorn CC)
- Keith Leonard (St Kilda CC)
- Peter Tzimas (St Kilda CC)
- Sam de Bruin (Hawthorn CC)
These four riders are all excellent examples of the unifying power of cycling. Although from a range of different backgrounds, they have each come to see cycling as a defining passion and a means to challenge themselves, increase their fitness and demonstrate leadership in the bunch as representatives of Bicycle Network. We’re thrilled to have them aboard the cyan bandwagon, and look forward to a great year in the 2013 season.
