THREE gold medals, a state selection and a ride for the ages: Bathurst Cycling Club turned up the heat at the 2019 Junior State Road Championships.
Bathurst Cycling Club sent six of their best riders to Kurri Kurri last weekend to participate across the three championship events - time trial, the road race and the criterium.
Ebony Robinson snagged a collection of gold medals from her endeavours in the under 13s division.
She defended the road race and criterium championships she also won in 2018, and snatching gold in the six kilometre time trial by only 0.8 seconds.
Kalinda Robinson, competing in the under 17s division, scored a great fifth position in the 12km time trial as she was only four seconds off the podium.
She also won bronze in the road race and silver in the criterium after pushing out of the chase group sprinting for second.

Father of that talented duo and coach Mick Robinson said that he was proud for both of them considering the tough conditions on the day.
"Ebony rode fantastically and peaked at the right time and brought home the gold medals," Robinson said.
"Kalinda also did really well, with that performance going with her three gold track medals earlier in the year.
"This was good training for her in preparation for upcoming under 19s track events and it has been valuable to balance road and track training.
"Road cycling helps endurance for track, as well as the ability to attack and surge, plus, especially with the conditions last weekend, learning how to think on your feet in variable conditions."
While not winning a medal at Kurri Kurri, under 15s rider Cadel Lovett produced what the Bathurst club labelled 'the ride of the weekend' when finishing eighth position in the criterium.
The criterium saw an early split in the peloton and while initially caught out by that break, Lovett jumped clear of the trailing group and bridged the gap to the leaders.
That ride accompanied his solid seventh place in the road race.
Other Bathurst riders returned with medals and great performances as well.
Luke Tuckwell nabbed a silver in the under 17s time trial, Jenna Gallagher claimed the bronze in the under 15s criterium while Sebastian Gallagher "rode the wind like a champion" in the under 8s participation category.
On top of her golden performances, Kalinda has been selected as part of the NSW team at the 2019 Cycling Australia Junior Road National Championships.
It will be staged on the Gold Coast on 20-22 September and mark her third appearance in the state road team.
