Support to benefit cyclists
A BRIGHT builder has directed funds from an industry award to the Alpine Cycling Club to establish a junior coaching initiative.
Rob Hofbauer of Hofbuild recently won an award through the Independent Builders Network (IBN) for his use of Scyon products.
Scyon produces aesthetically pleasing cladding products such as Axiom, Matrix, Linea and Stria and have been rewarding IBN builder members for the best use of their products.
They have given out awards in all Eastern Aus- tralian states for three years now with more than 100 IBN builder members in the running.
Winners have previously been from Queensland, Tasmania and now Victoria after Mr Hofbauer took out semi-national award for his wonderful home built in Tempo Crescent.
Generally the award includes a substantial cash amount to be placed towards advertising and promotion of the builder in their area but Rob has generously utilised the monies to set up a perpetual sponsorship and grant for junior cyclists through the Alpine Cycling Club.
The funds will be directed to a junior development program, which involves small groups of juniors undertaking skills coaching with professional mountain bike coaches over a two year period.
Andrew Friend from the Alpine Cycling Club said a large of young riders will benefit with well over 100 involved in the club’s junior program.
The clinic will be named The Hofbuild Junior Mountain Bike Development Program.
AWARD WINNER: Tim Renwick of the Independent Builder Network with Bright’s Rob Hofbauer, Andrew Friend and Gerard Gray.
