Port bik­ers head to Vic­to­ria fes­ti­val

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Scott Tibballs

PORT Dou­glas was well rep­re­sented at the GT Bike Buller Fes­ti­val.

Four staff from Port Dou­glas Bike Shop and Hire spent the long week­end moun­tain bik­ing and tear­ing up the trails in the Vic­to­rian Alps.

Shop man­ager Aedan Bus­mer placed 9th in the down­hill ex­pert cat­e­gory, whole shop co-owner Rod John­son placed 2nd in the cross-coun­try over 50s cat­e­gory, and 10th over­all.

Angie John­son “cre­ated her own cat­e­gory.”

“The tracks were amaz­ing to ride,” said Rod. V1 - CRGE01Z01MA

“They were well de­signed around the fa­cil­i­ties of the ski re­sort.”

Mt Buller is most fa­mous as a pop­u­lar ski re­sort over win­ter, draw­ing thou­sands of skiers out of Mel­bourne to the slopes, and the Bike Buller Fes­ti­val keeps tourists com­ing be­fore any snow falls.

Aedan Bus­mer and Travis Spence (un­of­fi­cially) rep­re­sented Port Dou­glas at Buller in Vic­to­ria last week.
