High fives for our Chloe
27 Oct 2017
THERE'S been little time to rest for budding young star Chloe Moran after success at the recent Tour of Gippsland - one of the premier races on the Subaru National Road Series calendar.
Chloe, 18, and a SASI scholarship holder, capped off a keenly contested competition by winning stage two as a member of the High5Dream Team.
The team shone at the Tour, recording three victories, a second and teams' classification.
For Chloe, it was her first stage win at a National Road Series event.
But there was little time to bask in that achievement with a quick trip back to Adelaide and an intense training camp awaiting the young star.
Chloe said the Tour had given her confidence.
''I learned so much about road racing,'' she said.
''It has been my first season of racing and racing in a team. I was so thrilled to come away with a win and to be in this team and to get that experience.
''The style of racing did suit me, especially leading into the track season. Our whole team did really well.''
The NRS, an Australia-wide series raced across all states, consists of the country’s leading individual and team cyclists.
For the time being Chloe will be flat out at a development camp in Adelaide with the aim of representing SASI at the Oceania titles in New Zealand from November 20 to 23.
Rotated between Australia and New Zealand, the event will highlight the best of the Oceania region cyclists including some of the world's best riders from New Zealand and Australia.
The event will attract current world champions and Olympic and Commonwealth Games medallists and will be held at the Avantidrome in Cambridge.
The competition will showcase the best Elite and U19 (junior) riders from Oceania - all riding to win titles and to push for Commonwealth Games selection.
