Cronulla Tri Club junior wins road bike valued at $1300

Eight-year-old Samantha Wilson (Cronulla Tri Club) was all smiles when she received a brand new Trek KRX road bike valued at $1,300 on Saturday thanks to Park Bikes in Sydney Olympic Park.

The Cronulla Tri Club (CTC) competitor’s name was drawn out of more than 400 junior member entries, who either joined or renewed their Triathlon NSW memberships between the 1st June and 31st July. 

Wilson first learned to ride with what was a loaner bike from her beloved CTC. But now she can happily — yet gratefully — return that bicycle for another worthy user, as she now has a shiny new bike of her very own. 

The Wilson family believes “what goes around, comes around” and Wilson’s father, Troy, was quick to assure TNSW that her new bike will be used until she is too big and also gifted back to the club to be lent to another deserving junior member. 

“Sami was really excited to win and it allows her step up to greater challenges on a better bike,” said Troy Wilson. “She was also pleased to be able to return her loaner bike back to the club. She loved giving the bike its maiden test run on Sunday morning.” 

There are no concerns about this new bike gathering dust. Sami Wilson is currently taking part in the CTC Duathlon Series, attends the Monday evening Junior training sessions during summer and takes part in their club’s triathlons during summer.  She is also a member of the local Cycling NSW club (Southern Cross Cycle Club), and rides with them on Sunday morning. 

“The goal this season is to improve my personal best times, have fun and enjoy riding with my tri and cycle club on my new bike I named ‘Firebolt’,” added Sami Wilson. 

The Wilson family have also already confirmed their intention to race and represent their club at the TNSW Club Champs in Forster on Saturday, 23rd of May, 2020.
