3rd - Hamish Burke - WRAS

In C Grade, Academy cyclists placed first and second:

1st - Kurt Eather - WRAS

2nd - Nathan Craig - WSAS

D grade saw Academy riders finish second and third:

2nd - Timothy Spackman, WSAS

3rd - Emily Yeaman, WSAS

After a successful weekend's racing - despite the cold and wet conditions yesterday - the leading cyclists in each age division are:

Under 15 women - Emily Yeaman, WSAS

Under 15 men - Mitchell Wright, IAS

Under 17 women - Chloe Heffernan, IAS

Under 17 men - Joshua Toovey, WRAS

Under 19 women - Hollee Simons, WRAS

Under 19 men - Adam Mitchell WRAS

While there was only one point separating competing Academies after yesterday's road race, Western Region pulled away in the pointscore after today's event and took the overall award for leading Academy.

The cyclists are now packing up and heading home after another successful and enjoyable ClubsNSW Academy Games.
