Shimano MTB GP launches Loan Market Junior Sprint Classification in 2022

The 2022 Season for Rocky Trail’s Shimano MTB Grand Prix cross-country series kicks off at Stromlo Forest Park on 19 February in Canberra. Established with headline sponsor Shimano Cycling Australia in 2009 this Season will transform the 4+6 Hour events from previous years into the most expansive 4-Hour XC Series in the country. Alongside Lazer Sports Australia and Maxxis Tyres Australia a new sponsor will join the ranks this year: Loan Market.

Local brokers Lana Moy and Greg Wunder have been passionate Rocky Trail racers for over a decade with us and our founders Juliane and Martin Wisata this year experienced first-hand what talented and skilful Mortgage Advisers they are in ‘real life’.

“We sometimes joke that we love to get to know our racers also in ‘real life’, because we normally get to meet them in full on gear with their race faces on most of the time. We love it when we get to engage with our racers beyond the tape, getting them on board as suppliers, sponsors or supporting their business ventures through our event platforms. Lana and Greg came to our rescue earlier this year and helped us secure our first home purchase.”

We are confident that many in our Rocky Trail community will benefit from having guidance by such engaged advisors as Lana and Greg in the intense mortgage and property market.

“We went through our house and home office purchase process a year ago and Lana and Greg have supported us navigating through the maze that is the mortgage and property market. We now run two businesses, we travel a lot and having them as a support network made a huge difference. Everything went so smoothly and their advice and guidance was invaluable.”

Lana Moy and Greg Wunder have initiated a new Junior Support Program in the cross-country series, which will offer four additional classifications to the traditional age group categories, including the:

Loan Market will reward for U18 racers fastest lap times with a free entry for 1-2-3 podiums for one event in the Shimano MTB GP Series.

  • Eligible: The top three U18 male and female racers who clock in the fastest race lap time per event
  • How it works: Eligible racers will receive an email after the event with an registration activation code and instructions how to redeem the free entry.

It really resonated with us that Rocky Trail this year is taking a more focused approach to their XC lap racing events. We want to support these events, which will challenge the pros and reward the personal bests of ambitious and passionate Rocky Trail racers. We are looking forward to providing free entry rewards to the Junior Sprint podium getters this year across NSW, ACT, VIC and QLD!
