While rain may have halted Ebony Robinson's chances at picking up medals on the weekend, she did take home the 2019 Under 13s NSW Cyclist of the Year.
Dubbo was meant to host the Cycling NSW Junior Championships and Open Carnival on Saturday and Sunday, but rain across the weekend saw a majority of racing canned.
The Bathurst Cycling Club talent was announced as the receipted of the award in Dubbo on Saturday night.
"I kind of thought I'd win because I had done really well, but the other girls are really fast too," she said.
Robinson - who is only 12-years-old - has begun competing in the under 15s girls category this year, while she was competing in the under 13s age group last year.
To compete in the under 13s, cyclists can't actually be turning 13-year-old, so the oldest eligible age they could be in that certain age group would by 12-years-old.
It was a pretty successful 2019 for the MacKillop College student, which is no surprise of course, as she did only just won the Under 13s NSW Cyclist of the Year award.
"At the track state championships I won the final of all the three races, the same as road too," she said.
And while a majority of the Open Carnival was cancelled, Robinson said the new Dubbo track was quality.
"It's a really good track, a bit better then ours."

While the open carnival was scrapped, the time trial and scratch was completed in the junior championships.
Bathurst Cycling Club's Jenna Gallagher picked up bronze in the under 11s girls time trial, while the club was also represented by Hallie Allen, Sienna Allen, Lara Allen, Amelia Kirby.
David Kirby and Sebastian Gallagher competed in the participation category.
The event was meant to be the first major carnival at the new precinct on River Street.
Dubbo Cycle Club's president Matthew Gilbert said that the club had been 'fortunate' to be able to complete the first two junior championship events scheduled, but will need to re-arrange the others to be held in the future.
"We were fortunate enough on Saturday to get through the first two championships, the time trial and the scratch race, the open carnival got through their handicaps and the Kieran races," Gilbert said.
"Unfortunately we weren't able to get to the main event, the Cliff Hazel memorial wheel race, or the last of the scratch races.

"We're now looking and working with Cycling NSW to incorporate the other events somewhere further down the year in another part of the calendar."
Gilbert said that a gap in Saturday's rainfall had allowed them to hold as many events as possible, whereas the consistent downpour early on Sunday had not allowed them any time to arrange the criterium or other open events.
"It was clear once we got here at about 7am in the morning that we'd have to cancel, otherwise the people who'd come far would be heading home in the dark, which isn't ideal," he said.
