  1. Hi I'm planning on visiting Cairns in Australia for a few weeks. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience hiring bicycles and/or riding trails in the Cairns area ? I spent a few weeks in Tenerife late last year, during which I hired two basic hard tails and cycled with my SO through the pine plantations. We alternated between MTB and diving on alternate days. It was awesome. I'm hoping to recreate that kind of experience in Australia. Any advice/ideas would be great. Thanks

  3. Jack Bobridge (Trek-Segafredo) went on to win the Australian National Road Race after he capitalised on a race long breakaway. Cameron Meyer came home in 2nd position on the day with Patrick Lane (Avanti) securing 3rd place. Click here to view the article
  4. Team Dimension Data rider Cameron Meyer. It was on the first of 18 10.2km laps that a large group of 21 riders went clear over the Mt. Buninyong climb. Eventual race winner Bobridge was part of this escape, as too was our very own Mark Renshaw. With just over 60km raced, the peloton were already 7 minutes down on the break and Bobridge would throw caution to the wind at this point. Bobridge would have Bernard Sulzberger (Drapac) for company as he attacked, but Sulzberger couldn't sustain the pace for all that long and it was Bobridge vs the rest with 90km to go. The rest of the break would be reeled in over the demanding course as Orica-GreenEDGE led the chase. The home team just didn't have the firepower today though and eventually our Cameron Meyer and Rohan Dennis (BMC) could not wait around anymore. With the gap still over 7'00" and 35km left to go, Camo attacked the peloton as Dennis followed. Cam would shake Dennis in the run to the line, at the same time clawing back 4 minutes on the leader but it was just not possible to catch Bobridge, who took a courageous victory. With Cameron coming home in 2nd, Patrick Lane (Avanti) crossed the line alone in 3rd after Dennis had faded while we had Nathan Haas win the small group sprint for 4th. A great start to the year by our African Team. The race was one of the toughest we have had on that course. The heat today made it a war of attrition. I'm really happy with my silver medal. It is my first time on the podium for the road race and unfortunately the peloton gave Jack Bobridge too much of a gap to bring back. He was super strong and deserved the Australian Champions Jersey.I felt really good riding for the first time in my Team Dimension Data kit and working with Nathan Haas and Mark Renshaw was really good. From a three man team to go and finish second and fourth is a great result and fantastic start to our Australian summer races. I am now looking forward to the Tour Down Under. Cameron Meyer - Rider
  5. Jack Bobridge left everything out on the road. After nearly four and a half hours leading the race, he took an inconceivable solo win to capture his second National road title. Click here to view the article
  6. Cameron Meyer (Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka) finished in second, 2 minutes and 52 seconds behind after launching a chase that dented but couldn’t break the monster gap Bobridge had built. Patrick Lane rounded out the podium. "I reckon I will sleep pretty well tonight," said Bobridge. "To win a national title is fantastic, you can wear the Aussie stripes in Europe and show them off all year. This is a big win for me but also for my team Trek-Segafredo. They believed in me and gave me a second chance, and I cannot thank them enough." Bobridge’s incredible day off the front also had him gobbling up the mountain and sprint points to win both competitions on top of the green and gold jersey. It was one of the most daring and gutsy rides ever seen at the Australian championships. "The people in Ballarat were incredible, all around the course," added Bobridge. "I guess the way I did it today got everyone pretty excited, being off the front all day and being aggressive. It was a hard way to win it, but I managed to pull it off." A 20-rider break that included Bobridge went clear the first time over the Mt Buninyong climb in the first of 18 laps of the 183.6-kilometer race. The gap grew fast as the big teams – BMC and Orica-GreenEdge – saw little threat in the large group. Eventually, Bobridge got away with Bernard Sulzberger (Drapac) and the two worked well together until Sulzberger fell off the pace with nine laps remaining. The gap to the Orica-GreenEdge and BMC led chasing group was over eight and a half minutes with five laps to go, and when the gap did not decrease over the next laps Meyer and Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) decided to give chase. But it was too late. Bobridge still had nearly seven minutes lead with three laps and slightly over 30 kilometers remaining. Behind everything had shattered. It was man against man and Bobridge wasn’t slowing down. By the finish Bobridge’s gap was cut to under three minutes; he still had plenty of time to savor his incredible effort. Behind Meyer dropped Dennis to claim second, while Lane caught and also overtook Dennis for third. Bobridge: "It's always a hard course to judge your effort: 10kms with a nasty little climb every lap. The wind direction was different than other years; it was a tailwind up the climb which helped the breakaway riders. In the first lap when a big group of 20 riders got away I managed to put myself in there, and then later slipped away with another guy who couldn't quite go with it. From that point on I had to give my all and move on; I had used too much energy to go back - I would have lost the race if I went back. I managed to hold it off. Yeah, it's the second time in my career, and it's a great feeling." Five years ago as a 21-year-old, Jack Bobridge won his first Australian title in similar fashion: he attacked from the breakaway and soloed the final 30 kilometers. Sometimes, history really does repeat itself.

  7. Strong winds and rain caused for several crashes. After an early group of three was able to establish a lead over the peloton, when the first crashes occurred. Unfortunately Songezo Jim hit the deck after 80 km of racing. Just a couple of kilometers later Serge Pauwels and Matt Brammeier were forced to get on their bikes again. The gap between the split peloton and the lead came down with around 100 kilometers of racing left. In the cross winds another group was able to get away, with Tyler Farrar and Matt Brammeier representing the team's stripes up front. The tough final in Geelong then made for another few break attempts. Nevertheless, the race was decided in a bunch sprint with Gianni Meersman (Etixx-Quick Step) taking the win from Simon Clarke (Orica-GreenEdge) and Nathan Haas (Cannondale-Garmin). After 175 kilometers of racing Tyler Farrar was the best MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung finisher. The race didn't turn out to go as we had planned it. We were involved in several crashes and therefore couldn't put on our stamp on the race in the final. No one got injured and the moral is still high, so we are looking forward to perform well at the upcoming Herald Sun Tour. Michel Cornelisse - Sports Director
  8. Several crashes overshadowed an active ride of team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung at the inaugural Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race. The weather conditions were everything but expected for racing in Australia. Click here to view the article
