Dear Hellyer friends,
With much sadness I need to let you know that Harry Lee one of the juniors here at Hellyer that I coach and a member of the Performance Cycle Coaching race team passed away on Saturday morning. Myself, the team and his friends are pretty devastated.
Those of you that met Harry will remember his cheeky nature, wonderful warm smile, super long socks and general love of racing and riding his bike. He was a regular at WNR, my Monday night endurance sessions where he always wanted more (and loved to ride a practice kilo!) and many other of the track sessions. I have been in contact with his mum Salina and she wants everyone in our community to know just how much Harry enjoyed our company and what being part of the track scene meant to him. She said it was a guiding light to him in his darker days and she is grateful for the support he found there and friendships he made.
The team is looking at putting on a memorial race/track day, I will make an announcement once everything is finalised.
I am so very sorry and sad to have to tell you this.
Your friend in cycling,

Volunteer of the Year – Fergus Tanaka
Congratulations to Fergus Tanaka for being selected as our, 2014 Volunteer of the Year. Here’s what our community submitted:
“Fergus has not only become a Supervisor, which he leads the Beginner Saturday session, but has also promoted a number of races this year. The reason why I think he deserves to be the Volunteer of the Year, is he stepped up to own the rental bike fleet. In a very short time, has transformed a system, documenting each bike’s status and has made repairs on all bicycles.”
“I’d like to nominate Fergus for V of Year. He renovated our rental fleet, promoted many events, and supervised Saturday sessions.”
“Gave everything he could to promote races this year even became a new supervisor! Promoted Wednesday’s Friday’s and additional weekends when needed!”
