Celebrating victory for Buller’s own
MT Buller ambassador for cycling, Simon Gerrans, was on the lips of all on Mt Buller last week when he wore the Tour de France yellow jersey.
Gerrans is only the sixth Australian to wear the coveted yellow jersey and became a home town hero overnight.
Although Gerrans has taken out other titles in his professional cycling career such as w i n n i n g t h e To u r o f Denmark and winning stages in all three major tours, this latest win is the highlight of his career.
Gerrans is a regular visitor to Mt Buller - specially during summer months when he is home from Europe competitions - using the climb to the top as part of his training.
