Double Bronze Medals for Madeleine Park at Oceania Championships
Madeleine Park, the youngest member of Team TIBCO – Silicon Valley Bank 2017 has had a very successful week at the Oceania Championships in Canberra, Australia.
The 18-year-old New Zealander took the Bronze medal in both the U23 Individual Time Trial and a very hot and tough road race where she was the 3rd U23 rider and 10th in the full Elite field.
“I am very pleased to be on both podiums, and I am happy with my form at the moment. The road race was very hard work; 120 kilometers with 1500 meters of climbing in really hot temperatures (over 30 C). A big thank-you goes to my family and my coaching team, (Jeffrey Pierce and Jo Kiesanowski) for all their support. Now I am really looking forward to traveling to the USA for my first race with the team which will the Joe Martin Stage race.”
Editors Note: Jo Kiesanowski retired at the end of last season after 16 years of professional racing, including the past nine years with Team-TIBCO Silicon Valley Bank.
