Congratulations to Luke Moir who finished 5th in the Junior men category at the 2019 UCI World Champs. The race took place on the 29 August in Mont Sainte Anne, Quebec, Canada.
Luke rode a perfect race, sticking with the lead group of 5 for the entire race. By the end of lap three, there were just four seconds separating the top five who had pulled away from the rest of the field. He was sitting with the 3rd place rider during the second half of the final lap but punctured. He slipped back and crossed the finish line in 5th position. This is still considered a podium finish.
Luke is currently racing in the U/18 category making him one of the youngest riders in the Junior men age group.
