Cognition, a proud sponsor was happy to be part of a great cycling community event, with local and non local riders coming to take part to raise valuable funds for such a great charity, the Royal Children's Hospital Foundation.
Congratulations to all the Noosa Trailblazers and local Sunshine Coast riders, there was some great results and achievements made. Chris Pearson finished in 2nd place in the Solo division with 13 laps and 2 person team, Team Cognition consisting of Justin Thompson and Greg Long fought hard for 3rd position against a very strong team, Ausmar Homes. After 8 hours and 15 laps, the two teams were side by side with 500 metres to go, with a final burst of energy, Greg edged ahead and crossed the line first. It was great to see the two teams shake hands and congratulate each other on a hard fought race which both teams really enjoyed.

It seems only fitting to mention Lester Manning and Garth Kellett who rode solo for the 8 hours and finished with 11 laps each. Both kept challenging themselves to keep going out for another lap. Lester said about the challenge, "This is nothing compared to what the children in the hospital go through everyday".
