SWAS Program Manager Cam McFarlane and 1st Place Ryan Minney
S.W.A.S. Cycling program athletes travelled to Mt Gambier last Sunday to compete in round 4 of the Summer series hosted by the Mt Gambier Cycling Club.
These types of events are a great way to educate the developing athlete on how to plan, prepare and compete in an unfamiliar environment.
An early morning combined with 30 degree plus temperatures certainly stretched athlete comfort zones on the day.
The trip was certainly worthwhile for Ryan Minney (Hamilton Cycling Club) and Mikayla McLaren (Pt Fairy Cycling Club) who claimed 1st and 2nd respectively in a close finish.
The team took time out for some lunch before heading out on a relaxing ride around Mt Gambiers famous landmark the Blue Lake.
The next event for the Cycling program is the SWAS ACCE day on March 3.
