EPIC sponsored cycling team braves tough ride for Queensland Road Team Series

Friday, 23 March 2018

EPIC Assist sponsored cycling dynamos Balmoral Elite Team have been participating in the Queensland Road Team Series, bravely tackling challenges head-on among a competitive field of riders.

The third round of the series took place last weekend, August 20 and 21, at Murwillumbah and saw riders embrace the difficult course, something Balmoral Elite Team Manager Kevin White saw as a positive.

“It was good to see it was a very solid road course, harder than what we’ve been having, which was good; we wanted something challenging,” said Kevin in a Cycling Queensland video.

“The boys performed well; they made the breaks they had to and finished in the main group.”

Riders were forced to think strategically and exercise aggression as they battled through hard-hitting climbs for much of the race.

The men’s 29km team time trial proved a strong suit for the Balmoral Elite Team, who collected an impressive third placing.

The team is looking forward to Round 4 of the Queensland Road Team Series, coming up on September 24 and 25 at the Sunshine Coast.
