Lake Hume Cycle Challenge 2018

The Lake Hume Cycle Challenge will stay at Wodonga Racecourse in the near future after moving from Noreuil Park.

Committee chairman Ian Moffat said numbers were slightly down for Saturday’s event, likely due to the new venue, or the weather.

“The winds blew up and we had a couple people being picked up for the last stretch of their ride, but everyone made it and enjoyed it,” he said.

“All the feedback I got about it being at Wodonga was positive.

“We had a lot more sponsors this year, having brought on the Turf Club as the sponsor, they were absolutely fantastic and did whatever they could.”

The 118 kilometre ‘Dederang Dominator’ was the most popular of the seven routes with some of the 197 participants coming from as far as Queensland.

The ride around Kergunyah was Andrew Croce’s first major cycling event.

“The Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre is a great cause and it was a very well run day from what I could see,” he said.
