Bachelor of Science student and Elite Athlete Program Scholar Sean Lake brought home a major victory in the National Racing Series’ Grafton to Inverell Race (25 October 2014). Sean rides for Melbourne University Cycling Club and the Melbourne University VRS team. Lake was on loan to team African Wildlife Safaris for the Race.
To put this result in context Melbourne University Cycling Club secretary John Prince stated “Many senior elite riders wait their entire career for a chance to win this race, and for many it never happens. What Sean accomplished is massive and it demonstrates his development and evolution as an athlete recently. We’re thrilled for him.”
Sean finished the race in 6 hours, 40 minutes and 26 seconds, and average of 34.2 kph. In the final few kilometres Lake seized an opportunity to pull away from four other riders and crossed the line in first place.
