Brenton Jones Wins Bay Classic


Warragul Cycling Club cyclist Brenton Jones is on target for the big leagues after winning the Mitchelton Bay Classic criterium series on the weekend.

Brenton began cycling for the Warragul club as a junior and over the years has developed into a fine young cyclist.  He has regularly contributed to the club by such running events such as junior development sessions and has previously sat on the committee as a development officer. During races, BJ may ride along with the lower grades giving words of encouragement or providing tips.

To kick off a new team name, Avanti Pro, Brenton opened his 2014 account with strong consistent racing against the best riders in the country.   Previous winners who have gone on to gather fame on the pro European circuit include Allan Davis, Matt Goss, Chris Sutton, Mark Renshaw, Robbie McEwan and Neil Stephens.  With a ride in the Tour de France being Brenton’s aim, he is well on the way to achieving his goals.

The Warragul Cycling Club congratulates BJ on a fantastic result and wishes him the best for the Australian titles to be held next week where a number of our high ranked club members will be racing for the green and gold jerseys.
