Craig Trevallion Joins Lake Crackenback Resort as Cycling Coordinator

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 5 January 2015

Cycling enthusiast Craig Trevallion has swapped his 20-year career as a police officer to work as the Cycling Coordinator at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa in the New South Wales Snowy Mountains.

The growth in the popularity of mountain biking prompted Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa to create the position and have tasked Craig with increasing the profile of cycling in the region and create new cycling programmes for mountain bikers as well as road riders.

Craig has been involved in cycling for more than 25 years as a down-hill and cross country specialist as well as a road racer.

Cycling has taken me to many places around the world and I look forward to sharing my experience and enthusiasm with holidaymakers and conference delegates at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa, said Craig. If I can encourage a guest to get on to a bike and develop their skills while they have fun, I believe they will get hooked. The sport is so rewarding and the opportunity of helping people to achieve their own rewards, at whatever level they are at, means that every day at work will be a great one.

In recent years, Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa has invested significantly in cycling by developing a dedicated skills park and pump and flow track, maintaining more than 21km of mountain bike terrain and attracting major events like the Australian Cross Country Triathlon Championships.

The investment in infrastructure combined with the appointment of a dedicated cycling role is expected to open up a new era of tourism in the region, said Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa, General Manager, Anthony Cleary. The opening of the new Thredbo Valley Track now provides direct off-road access between Thredbo Resort and Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa for mountain bike riders and walkers.

The resort has also upgraded its fleet of hire mountain bikes to state-of-the-art Specialized brand bicycles to cater for the more serious cyclist.

We easily have the most sophisticated and well-equipped mountain bike hire facility of any resort in Australia. Many amateur cyclists come here to try the Specialized bikes before they invest in one of their own, Mr Cleary added.

Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa supports three champion mountain biking ambassadors including BMX and mountain bike superstar, five-time world champion and London 2012 Olympic Games finalist Caroline Buchanan plus mountain biking legend and marathon champion Andy Blair and dual national marathon champion, Jenny Fay who holds both the Australian and Irish titles.
