2014 National Road Championships - Girls put the 'Gold' in Gold Coast!

January has proved a fantastic start to the 2014 season for Gold Coast Cycling Club elite riders and we are proud to congratulate the efforts of all our riders who recently competed at the Australian National Road Championships in Ballarat.

Special congratulations to our Women’s U23 riders Emily Roper and Jenelle Crooks as well as Women’s Elite rider Katrin Garfoot for their fantastic results!

Gold in all three Women’s U23 events was won by a Gold Coast Cycling Club rider. Emily Roper (right) placed 1st in the Criterium and Road Race and 2nd in the Time Trial. Fellow U23 competitor and GCCC rider Jenelle Crooks (left) placed 1st in the Time Trial and 2nd in the Road Race. In the Women’s Elite, three strong rides from Katrin Garfoot earned her 4th in both the Time Trial and Criterium and a Bronze medal in the Road Race.

A stellar effort from club rider Jayden Copp put him 16th in the Elite Men’s Time Trial and we are looking forward to seeing more of his, U23 rider Jacob Restall and the girl’s results for the rest of the year! Well done guys!
