Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - GAZETTE SPORT -

In­ter­na­tional cy­clist Cy Monk pro­vided in­spi­ra­tion to ju­niors of the sport re­cently.

Hav­ing un­der­taken Warragul Cy­cling Club’s ju­nior track pro­gram un­der cur­rent coach Ross Henry about 10 years again,

Cy shared his ex­pe­ri­ences from start­ing as a ju­nior to where he is to­day, rid­ing and com­pet­ing over­seas.

Cy talked about his early track and road rid­ing and what it takes to get to the elite level, in­clud­ing de­ter­mi­na­tion and ded­i­ca­tion. His over­all ad­vice was to prac­tice and ride as much as pos­si­ble.

Pro­gram co-or­di­na­tor and coach Ross Henry said the pro­gram, which runs on Mon­day nights, was cur­rently at ca­pac­ity with 15 mem­bers.

Cy left with a part­ing gift, do­nat­ing three bags full of cy­cling kit cloth­ing for the chil­dren. “It was ap­pre­ci­ated by the kids,” Henry said. “He do­nated quite a bit, he had three large garbage bags full.

“It was a bit like Santa turn­ing up.”
