Cobra9-Intebuild Racing Team heads to Tour Of King Valley
This weekend sees our small team head down to Wangaratta to compete in The Sam Miranda Tour of King Valley.
The tour consists of 4 stages - a prologue, criterium and two road races, one of which features numerous dirt segments.
We are fielding a young team filled with some of South East Queenslands brightest talents. We have Oliver Smith who was impressive in his first NRS race, Grafton to Inverell, where he finished 12th. Since Grafton, Ollie has continued to show his strength, podiuming consistently in Qld races, and most impressively taking NRS team mate Jordan Kerby’s scalp in the TT at the Warwick round of the QRTS.
Tim Lofthouse also continues his development at the NRS level this weekend. After a solid few months of training, King Valley should provide some solid racing for him to build more valuable experience.
Enigmatic David Edwards will provide some form of experience to the team, having raced King Valley 2 years ago. David will look to post a solid time in the prologue, and help guide the younger riders around the road stages.
Mr Cobra9, Nathan White, is throwing himself in the mix as well. Despite being the oldest in the team, he provides more unwavering youthful enthusiasm than most. Nathan will be racing with his typical aggressive style, and look to will find himself up the road for as much of the race as possible.
Josh Beikoff, Calan White and Alex Quirk will also join us as guest riders for the tour. The three have been consistently featuring strongly in Qld races for the first part of the year and it will be great to have them racing in the Cobra9-Intebuild colours for the weekend. We are excited to see what they can achieve.
Finally a massive thanks to Jamie O’Neill from BNECC who has offered his time to come down and help the guys out. The help will be appreciated by all.
