Adelaide University Cycling Club's Committee Member Sophie Edwards has achieved a Bronze Medal in the Individual Pursuit at the UCI Junior Track World Championships in Switzerland. Sophie rode a great time to make it into the Bronze medal ride-off, in which she fought back from behind to beat her French competitor and slightly improved on her qualifying time. This goes along with a fourth place for Australia in the 4-rider Team Pursuit from earlier in the week.

Everyone at the club tremendously happy for Sophie, who we've seen working incredibly hard this year, and in previous, with her racing and training; as well as somehow managing to fit in her University studies. We're also very grateful for all the hard work Sophie puts in behind the scenes for the club as a committee member and look forward to seeing her continue to succeed in her flourishing cycling career.

Sophie was awarded The Bob Heddle sport scholarship by Adelaide University Sport in 2018.
