Aussie title for Hildred
Wayne Hildred from Bright, Victoria, has “been there, done that”, having raced in Australia, New Zealand and in Europe as a pro.
He returned to competitive cycling a few years ago under the watchful eye and guidance of Bob Kelly. Wayne has years of tactics under his belt and his skills are some of the best we have ever seen. Anyone who can descend Tawonga Gap without touching their brakes and staying on the correct side of the road is skillful in our eyes. Bob’s job was teaching Wayne how to rest and trust the training he has done, leading into major races and events.
The Masters Nationals titles were held in October in Metung, Victoria. After some great international racing including a podium in a regional Italian race, and a top 10 finish at the World Masters Champs, Italy in August, Wayne knew he had the form to do well.
Known by his peers as the Cyclone, Wayne has a powerful kick which he unleashed in spectacular style to take the Australian Masters Road Race Title.
