WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS Fort william 2023-HMBA members represent Australia in DHI

Well the dust/mud has well and truly settled, the 2023 UCI World cup in Pal Arinsal, Andorra & Les Gets, France “Les Portes Du Soleil” has been run & won.

So lets rewind back to the August 4-5: UCI Mountain Bike World Championships – Fort William, Scotland (DHI)

HMBA are proud to say that two of our DH members where picked in the ARA Australian Cycling Team, Josh Arcus Elite Men & William Ireland Junior Men. What an honour for both Josh & Will to represent their country in a sport they love wearing the green & gold, compared to humble beings coming to the club as 13 & 10yr olds being guilded down Monkey, relishing the challenge that the Awaba Downhill “The Monkey” throws at you. The adrenaline & smiles for miles. The Boys cut their teeth riding gaining valuable skills, it was an honour to watch them grow, competing at Club, State, National & then on the International World Scene, “Well Done” guys!
