Thredbo may be a tourist haven in winter, but three Eurobodalla Shire youngsters took advantage of its summer activities last weekend.
Jack McFarlane, and Nicholas and Christopher Usher all won medals at the Snowies Mountain Bike Festival held on the Thredbo slopes.
Jack and Nicholas competed in the under 18s division of a grueling five-stage event that culminated in a 45-kilometre cross country stage.
Sixteen-year-old Jack showed his speed and endurance over the five stages to secure second place, edged out by ACT rider Declan Inglis.
Nicholas secured third place after a tight tussle with Jarrod Teal from Helensburgh.
Christopher Usher, in his first ever event, tackled the 15-kilometre cross country race, winning the under 14s division.
The boys were extremely proud of their success and truly enjoyed the challenging event that attracted over 300 competitors.
The three cyclists would like to thank Moruya Bicycles for their support, and are all looking forward to next year’s event.
