Earlier this month, Andrew Yang from Camberwell was announced as the lucky winner of the ‘Ride with Gerro’ competition - a once in a lifetime opportunity to cycle one of the 7 Peaks with Australian pro cyclist, Tour de France stage winner and current Australian Road Race Champion Simon Gerrans.
Andrew and three friends chose Hotham to tackle and had a ball cycling to the top today, receiving tips and advice from Simon Gerrans himself along the way.
According to Gerro, “Hotham is by far the hardest of all the peaks, for sure” – words of advice for all those challenging themselves on the 7 Peaks climb in the coming months.
A big thank you to The General Store for hosting the riders on their trip to Hotham!
