Australiaís best trial competitors will take on the world, with up to 120 riders and over 25 countries set to converge on Sokolov for the TdN. Women's Team addition, Coleman will join Kristie McKinnon and Jena Lupo for the Australian assault.
Coleman commented on her return to the TdN team; ďItís been a few years since Iíve competed in the TdN, as Iíve been raising a family. Iíve always been riding but when the opportunity came up to compete again, I couldnít pass it up. In 2010, I was selected for the TdN team but I sustained a knee injury two days before flying out to the Czech Republic. It always felt like it was unfinished businesses to head back to the country and finish the job! When the opportunity came up, I felt like it was my calling to return.Ē
The team is pleased to welcome minders Whittle and Hull to the Australian TdN Team. They will play a crucial role to the performance of the team.
Australiaís menís team will return as the defending champions in the International Class for the first time and an added bit of pressure. They will be eager to step up to the plate and defend their title.
