Legend Podiums - Aussie National Champs

Hey All,

Just a quick note to acknowledge that our youngest member of Team Banshee Australia, Lachlan (Lachy) McLaren from Cairns in North Queensland put his Banshee Legend on the podium at the recent Australian National Championships in Adelaide.

Lachy was competing in the Under 17 Male category and had a great run down the mountain resulting in him holding the 'hot seat' for quite some time and eventually finishing 3rd! The Under 17 Male category is becoming very fiercely contested with many talented riders competing for honours and this will carry through to the Junior Division of Under 19 Male next year which will set the scene for some exciting racing.

Lachy is currently holding down 7th position in the Aussie National Series after not being able to compete in the 3rd round at Mount Buller due to Cyclone Yassi trying to wipe his town off the map and flights out being cancelled!! He will head to Shepparton in a few weeks to compete in the final National round which are being held in conjunction with the Oceania Champs and on current form - will go well again. Keep an eye out for him in future result sheets as I am sure he has a big future ahead of him.
