CLUB INFORMATION : Jade in NRS

Jade Colligan, Bicycle Superstore NRS Team 2014.
Optus Nowra Velo Club rider, Jade Colligan will race the National Road race series in 2014 on an elite women?s team.
Jade was signed on by the Victorian women?s Bicycle Superstore NRS team for this years series of national events run throughout Australia against the best of this country?s women.
This follows a rapid improvement through the ranks after Jade started racing with the Optus Nowra Velo Club in January 2012. Through that year Jade showed her aggression and grit on the bike and quickly learned the skills from some of the older members of the club.
At the end of 2012 Jade was voted the most improved rider in the Optus Nowra Velo Club. Into 2013 she stepped up a grade and joined up with FTP coach Damian Mason.
With Mason?s input and skill and Jade?s natural determination, she progressed rapidly throughout the year.
Jade won medals at the NSW Southern Division Road Championships, the NSW Junior Under 19 ITT, road and criterium championships and finished top six in both the Optus NVC?s Division 1 and Division 2 road championships.
With an obvious improvement throughout the year Jade was invited to the National series event, the five day Tour of the Murray River as a guest rider with the women?s Bicycle Superstore team.
An overall 3rd in the Under 23?s section n of this event along with a solid performance against the elite women saw Jade being invited to an AIS women?s training camp in Canberra. The flow on from these events has resulted in Jade?s inclusion in the NRS Bicycle Superstore team for 2014.
Jade?s first duties with the BSS team was at the National raod championships in Ballarat this month where she placed 5th in the women?s under 23 individual time trial championship. In February
Jade will attend a training camp with the team at Bright in Victoria and then the serious racing with the team on the national stage begins in April.
Jade will race on a Giant bicycle this year and be dressed by Santini.
Jade was the Optus Nowra Velo Club?s most improved rider for 2013 to follow on from the same honour the previous year. Some of this honour also belongs to her coach, Damian Mason.
