Fast Start Josie

Congrats to  Kelly Cycle Coaching athlete, Josie Simpson who finished 4th at the CX nationals on the weekend. 

Josie had a crash midway through and needed a bike change but regrouped quickly and rode strongly to finish.  On the Saturday, Josie and 3 others combined to compete in the teams competition, with each rider doing 1 flat out lap as a team relay competition.  Her team finished 1st, which gave the team national title jersey’s.

Simpson 3rd at CX State Champs

Josie Cornering

Kelly Cycle Coaching athlete Josie Simpson finished 3rd in the CX State Champs last weekend.  The heavens opened up with 10mins to go making the course more challenging than when she’d pre-ridden it that morning.

She had some bad luck with the bunting blowing across her path and wrapping around her cranks.  Unable to tear it free, she had to stop and unwind it, losing valuable time.

Josie Running Josie Cornering

In the end, she finished a strong 3rd and is now preparing for the National CX champs being held in Melbourne over the 8-9 August weekend.

Well done Josie.


Success in Harcourt

Country Winners

Kelly Cycle Coaching had a number of athletes attend the Country Road Champs and Metro Road Champs in Harcourt last weekend.

Impressive were the ParkTrent Properties women and Anchor Point/ParkTrent Real Estate women who did a clean sweep of the podium in the Metro Road Champs, finishing 1st (Justine Barrow), 2nd (Carley McKay) and 3rd (Josie Simpson).

In the Country Road Champs, Nick White won the men’s U19 event, Kirsty Deacon won the women’s U19 event and Vic Snibson came 3rd in the Elite Women’s road race.  A highlight in the women’s U19 event was that Kirsty Deacon raced against the elite women and won the event overall, outsprinting Rachael Ward in a two up sprint.

Paddy Burt finished 10th in the elite men’s road champs being outnumbered by a number of NRS teams but held his own against strong oposition. Kyle Thompson, Dyl Thompson and David Randall also raced well.

Sammy Clarke finished 6th in his U15 road race.  David Williams raced well as did Josh Grieves in his first junior road event.

Well done guys.
