Sup­port to ben­e­fit cy­clists

Myrtleford Times - - News -

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.
