Potter

Originally from a mountain biking background, 2018 was a breakout season for the young Potter on the road with the team. Beginning with a third place in the National U23 road race in January, Potter went from strength to strength to become one of the key leaders of the team. Potter is also in the third year of a Mechanical Engineering degree at the University of Sydney, which he combines with training and regular domestic and international racing.

It wasn’t to be today for @michaelfreiberg at #r It wasn’t to be today for @michaelfreiberg at #roadnats, but as a team we are in awe of the fight and determination this guy showed in his efforts to be in it until halfway up the final lap of Mount Buninyong.
