Cel­e­brat­ing vic­tory for Buller’s own

Mt Buller News - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
