HUON GENESYS PRO RACING TEAM – AUTUMN CAMP FOR SERIOUS RECREATIONAL CYCLISTS AND ROAD BIKERS.
6th to 7th April 2013
The Number 1 National Road Series team champions for Australia for three years running will be coming to Perth and hosting an Autumn Camp from the 6th to the 7th April 2013.
Huon Genesys Pro Racing Team, previously also known as the Genesys Wealth Pro Racing Team will be coming to town with a 10 man squad of professional riders and their support team to run an Autumn Camp for up to 200 lucky cyclists who act quickly and enrol.
Lead by the nationally recognised and respected Team Managers Andrew Christie Johnson and Steve Price – who have been instrumental in the career development and professional recognition of riders such as Ritchie Porte, Nathan Haas and Steele von Hoff – they bring to you Pro Riders which include National Criterium Champions, Under 23 champions as well as champions at various national and international road racing programs within the UCI Oceania region.
Perth is privileged to the inception point of such Knowledge Transfer camps created by Ian Wee in his capacity as Executive Director for the Huon Genesys Pro Team and also as Director Sportif of the Perth Integrated Health Cycling Group. Known in all local circles of cycling for his cycling group and work as Medical Classifier for Cycling Australia, Bike Ergonomist, Community and Corporate presenter for all topics cycling as well as a radio segment exposure on 98.5 FM and now 6PR with Howard Sattler – Ian has seen the opportunity of these camps which coincide with the many cycling events centred around Bike Week 2013 namely the:
UCI World Series Event in Perth 11th to the 14th April 2013
Tour de Perth 10th to the 14th April 2013 – first ever National Road Series championships in Perth.
Dams Challenge 14th April 2013
Because of the popularity of these events and also because they are in many ways bench marks for many serious recreational cyclists and road riders – we have decided to host this very special Autumn Camp as the FINAL PREPARATION for you for the weekend leading to these events BEFORE you commence your tapering the following week!

Autumn Camp Details
We are aware of the fact that many of us are time pressed and that availability of a weekend before a number of major events might require advanced negotiation with the family, loved ones and for some even work.
