A very successful day of cycling, fundraising and general Australia Day enjoyment was celebrated on Friday, January 26, at the 14th Joseph Sunde Memorial Criteriums on Friday at Sydney's Heffron Park.
Fundraising for the day topped $5,000 which is donated to the Childrens Cancer Institute of Australia to support their valuable research into childhood cancer - if you didn't get a chance to support the raffle and would still like to make a donation, click here.
The elite men's race was taken out by South Australia.com - AIS rider, Shaun Higgerson (see full race report) in a high-quality field.
Our thanks to the 130 cyclists who competed on the day, everyone who donated so generously, the event sponsors and the Eastern Suburbs Cycling Club for organising another memorable event.
(*John Sunde is the race promoter of this annual event, held as a memorial to his son, Joseph, who lost his life to leukaemia aged four.)
