Two BMC Australia Mountain Bike Racing Team riders are getting some overseas racing experience. Charlton Durie will represent Australia in the cross country at the upcoming World Mountain Bike Championships, and Brian Price is representing NSW at the Oceania cross country championships this weekend.
Durie will compete for Australia in the U19 Cross Country competition at the World Mountain Bike Championships, to be held in Val di Sole, Italy, June 16-22. He is the current Australian U19 National Champion, in addition to his successes as 2007 National Series U19 cross country and NSW State Series U19 XC champion.
Price is accumulating UCI points in Nelson, New Zealand, at the Oceania Championships where he is racing for both NSW and BMC as NSW's current elite cross country series champion. A successful race will see him tally sufficient UCI points to qualify for the UCI World Cup race to be held in Canberra this August.
The full roster for BMC Australia MTB Racing Team includes: Charlton Durie, Jason English, Troy Bailey, Trevor Hill, Brian Price, and David Rome.
