The school holidays finished with a bang at Eildon, where Blackburn Cycling Club held the last of the Victorian Junior Road tours, prior to States in August. It was the end of an era, with Sarah attending her thirty-first and final junior tour! Along the way we have made so many friends, had so much fun and loved each and every tour! Many thanks to the wonderful volunteers at Ararat, Bendigo, Blackburn and Shepparton clubs, as well as our fantastic Northern Combine with its three day junior tour, and the interstate clubs of Central Districts (SA), Wagga (NSW) and our beloved Canberra!
The Eildon tour saw Sarah pick up a win in the Time Trial, placing her 15 seconds ahead of the lovely Jemma, who had no trouble picking up the lost time while heading up the dam wall in Race One and over Skyline in Race Two. Sarah finished the tour in second place, with Jemma first. Starting as a bottom age Under 13, Sarah has finished this tour in second place five times! That elusive first place will have to wait until seniors!
Thank you to Peter and Helen, who shared their beautiful home with us for the weekend!
