Adam Baker wins state se­ries

Mansfield Courier - - Courier Sport - By MANS­FIELD MT BULLER CY­CLING CLUB (MMBCC)

EVEN though the MMBCC is no longer a BMX club, Adam Baker has pro­duced some great re­sults lately to take out the Vic­to­rian State Se­ries in 40-44 Men’s Cruiser Class.

Adam raced six of the eight rounds all across the state, in­clud­ing those at War­rnam­bool, Li­ly­dale, Mildura, Bendigo, Park Or­chards and Port­land.

With five sec­ond places and a win un­der his belt in the fi­nal round, it is hope­fully enough to wrap up the se­ries with a win.

Con­grat­u­la­tions Adam and good luck at the Vic­to­rian ti­tles.

run the Mans­field Gym­nas­tics Club. She has a group of vol­un­teer par­ents who, un­der her guid­ance, help run the ses­sions. There are also par­ents ros­tered on each week to help with the set up and pack up of the equip­ment. Cur­rently there are ap­prox­i­mately 40 chil­dren par­tic­i­pat­ing each week. The ju­nior lev­els train from 4-5pm learn­ing and prac­tis­ing the ba­sics of gym­nas­tics. This pre­pares them for the graded lev­els of WAG. Dur­ing this time the se­nior level WAG girls are work­ing on mus­cle and strength devel­op­ment. Af­ter the ju­niors have left, the WAG girls move on to ap­pa­ra­tus train­ing un­der the watch­ful eye of Therese. Be­cause Mans­field Gym­nas­tics Club is a set up/pack up club that can’t pro­vide a sprung floor, ap­pro­pri­ate vault or bars sys­tem, Quinn and Han­nah will need to con­tinue at Be­nalla Gym­nas­tics. They will com­pete in 2020 at WAG level 6 and both hope that in the near fu­ture, Mans­field will have a gym­nas­tics cen­tre that would al­low them to train here and rep­re­sent their home town at state cham­pi­onships. GO GIRLS: Quinn Rus­sell and Han­nah Ber­ri­man at the 2019 state cham­pi­onships.
