Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) is pleased to announce nominations for the 2014 Junior National Mountain Bike Team. This team will have the honour of representing Australia at the 2014 UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championships being staged in Hafjell, Norway, 2nd to the 7th September 2014.

The 2014 juniors will follow in the steps of many successful athletes over the years, with current and former mountain bike Olympians Bec Henderson (ACT), Dan McConnell (ACT), Lisa Mathison (QLD) and Cadel Evans (NT) all being former National junior team members.

Athletes selected to the National team will have the chance to represent Australia at the sport’s highest level – the World Championships, and compete for the title of World Champion.

Athletes selected to the development team will have the chance to work with national level coaches and learn how to specifically prepare for major competition in the future, as well as be reserves for the National team.

Donna Dall, MTBA Cross-Country National Coach, said “It’s fantastic to have a promising and dedicated group of athletes selected to the 2014 Junior National Team and Development Squad. Both Jared Rando, the DownHill coach and myself are looking forward to working with the stars of tomorrow”.
