3 Golds for Bathurst in the NSW Hill Climb Champs

Bathurst cycling club has finished the NSW Hill Climb championship with 3 Gold Medals, 1 silver and 2 riders qualifying for the world championship Time Trial in France in August.

Bathurst club riders Emily Watts Mark Windsor and Jim Lavis won NSW Titles with Jette McKellar winning Silver medal while Windsor and Nev Krahe qualified for the world in the timed dash up Mt Panorama.
While Lavis won the Masters 8 title and Windsor the Masters 6 championship, while Emily Watts was particularly impressive in her under 19 womens championship win as her time was less than 2 second behind the fastest female time of the day set by Muswellbrook rider Nicky Western who recorded 11:05.96.

Jette McKellar State Silver Medal was a very popular result with the club as she has been one of Bathurst most consistent female performers for a long time.

Unlucky to miss a state medal was former international rider Toireasa Gallagher who recorded a good time to 4th in the championship. While Juniors Kalinda Robinson and Luke both made the top 10 state ranking in the under 15s Division, Tuckwell 7th behind ACT’s Harry Jones and Malachi Covington who has strong family ties with Bathurst.
New Bathurst member Jay Austin was very impressive breaking the 10min barrier up the mountain to record a top 10 ranking in the Masters 4 category
Likewise Stephen Dunstall (MMAS1) and Ryan O'Donnell (MMAS3) finished in the Top10 in their Categories while Hayden Booth and Rob Barlow recorded new personal best time with Rob again in the top10 of the Master6 category.

Bathurst had 3 riders in the very competitive Masters Men 5 Championship with David MCKellar setting a new personal best time of 12:07 and joining Tim Roebuck and Greg Wills in the top 20 rankings
