Coalition takes stick to renewables and ACT By John Mitchell Federal and State Coalition members have vowed to fight an ACT Government decision to boost investment in renewable energy projects. Surrounding local government leaders, however, have been more nuanced in their responses. Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor said the ACT’s announcement that it would achieve 90% of its 2020 emissions target through renewable projects was green policy gone mad. “The first casualties will be Canberra businesses and Canberra homes. I challenge Simon Corbell [ACT Minister for the Environment] to admit that wholesale electricity prices will triple under his plan. And this doesn’t include extra charges
the NSW Government will be applying for taking baseload power out of the NSW system when the wind doesn’t blow,” Mr Taylor said. State Member for Monaro John Barilaro challenged his colleague, the NSW Parliamentary Secretary for Renewable Energy Rob Stokes, over his support for the ACT Government's announcement. "I'm sick and tired of NSW being ACT's junkyard," Mr Barilaro said. "The ACT's policies come at the expense of NSW landowners. It's simply not acceptable. Regional and rural communities are strongly opposed to wind farms. Without broad community support for these developments they should never be approved."
State Member for Burrinjuck Katrina Hodgkinson said she had been strongly opposed to inappropriately sited wind farms in this region for more than a decade. “Now the ACT Government is trying to override local community concerns,” she said. State Member for Goulburn
“..the decision by various Coalition MPs and local councils to fight the decision of the ACT Govt.. indicates an ignorance of climate science.”
Pru Goward opposes wind farms, but is leaving the door open for other renewables. “The ACT is welcome to look at solar and bio energy schemes but wind farms are a different matter. [But] our communities won’t be pushed around and made to bear the cost of the ACT Government’s expensive bid for green votes,” Pru Goward said. Yass Valley Mayor Rowena Abbey said: “Right across southern NSW.. communities are really angry about these projects. It would do the ACT Government well to recognise the level of angst,” she said. Goulburn Mayor Geoff Kettle said the ACT Government can go down this track, but it shouldn't be at the expense of
surrounding communities. “I encourage Canberra families and businesses wanting to take advantage of lower living and energy costs to consider a move to Goulburn Mulwaree. You will be welcomed with open arms.” Palerang Mayor Pete Harrison said that his Council had adopted an interim policy some years ago that wind farms are more appropriate in remote locations away from houses and especially rural residential developments. "It’s probably no surprise that landholders who receive financial benefit from these projects have a different view than those who don’t. Schemes that involve a direct, ongoing financial benefit to local residents seem to have yielded more generally positive results elsewhere, but we are
yet to see any such proposal locally. Either way, the impact on local residents should be a primary consideration in siting any such facility." Climate Action Monaro president Jenny Goldie said the decision by various Coalition MPs and local councils to fight the decision of the ACT Government that is aiming for 90 per cent renewables by 2020 indicates an ignorance of climate science. “What we are hearing from our scientists is that we are on track for four degrees warming or worse and that we must shift rapidly from a high carbon too a low carbon economy. This means not only behavioural change, such as travelling less and eating locally, it means shifting electricity generation to P2

Public prospectus for cabinet
Master Craftsman Geoffrey Hannah, explaining his cabinet to members of the Historic Furniture Association Coalition takes stick to renewables F1 wind and solar and away from coal, particularly brown coal (lignite) from the Latrobe Valley, as quickly as we can. ACT Minister Simon Corbell has shown great courage and foresight in having such an ambitious target, and should he succeed, the ACT will be a model for the rest of the world. “Climate Action Monaro applauds the wind farm at Boco Rock near Nimmitabel and the solar farm at Royalla. Wind turbines are aesthetically pleasing, do not cause health problems and are a proven
technology. Solar energy is plummeting in price and will soon have parity with coal, thus extra costs to the consumer of adding solar to the mix will be temporary to cover construction costs, and not ongoing. "Climate Action Monaro calls on the politicians and Councils concerned to get themselves informed on climate change by reading any number of recent reports, such as that from the CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology. Business-as-usual is not an option if we are to avoid dangerous climate change," Jenny Goldie said.

Press Release Master Craftsman Geoffrey Hannah, designer and maker of the Hannah Cabinet currently on display in the Wood Works Gallery, was in Bungendore recently for the launch of a Draft Prospectus aimed at preparing the way for purchase and permanent placement of the cabinet. Geoff presided over four functions, one of which comprised 30 members of the Melbourne Chapter of the Historic Furniture Association of Australia. Another was a special viewing for people from various branches of the
Federal Government at which he demonstrated in his inimitable and genuine Australian style, the visual and palpable delights of the 140 drawers and 18 doors of the cabinet that is made from 34 different timbers, predominantly from Australia, but also from Papua New Guinea, Brazil, the UK and other countries around the world. The Cabinet has been in residence at the Gallery for nearly 12 months and Gallery staff have pursued a number of possible purchase paths for the it. The prospectus is aimed to inform possible purchasers of the merits of the Cabinet and the project for eventual purchase and placement. Gallery staff and everybody who views it, makes the comment to that they feel that this unique piece of Australian Craftsmanship needs to be kept in Australia and on public display in perpetuity, for the enjoyment of the Australian public and the many visitors to this region. The prospectus outlines full details of the history and construction of the cabinet, the project objectives, information on key personnel involved, ownership and placement suggestions and suggested funding strategies, including public donation and possible crowd sourcing- a product of the dynamic power of the social media revolution sweeping the world. It includes letters of recommendation from dignitaries and organisations in addition to press and media articles in which the public supports the idea of the Cabinet residing here in the Canberra ACT Region. Copies of the prospectus are available at the Gallery on personal request.

BUNGENDORE POLICE REPORT ELMSLEA BREAK-INS During the night of Saturday 29 March two houses were broken into in the Elmslea area. Small electrical items were stolen from one house. Forensic Police are attending to search for fingerprints and DNA. No one was home at either house at the time and it’s not unusual for offenders to knock on doors to check to see if anyone is home prior to breaking in. If anyone has had people knocking on their doors for no apparent reason ,or seen anything suspicious on Saturday night, can they contact Bungendore Police Station on 6238 1244. CRASHED AND ELOPED Police are appealing for public assistance after a police pursuit
at Bywong. Just before 6.30pm Saturday the 29 March officers attached to Goulburn Traffic and Highway Patrol Command attempted to stop a Honda Sedan travelling south on the Federal Highway atYarra. When the car failed to stop, police pursued the car along the highway to the Macs Reef Road intersection at Bywong, where road spikes were deployed. The car, driven by a man who was the sole occupant, crossed the oncoming lane and left the road, hitting a tree. The man fled the scene and was last seen running across a number of rural properties in the area. His car caught fire and was destroyed. Officers attached to Goulburn and Monaro Local C3
Press Release The 'A High for Bungendore' committee is excited by our first donation towards the high school for Bungendore campaign. Bungendore Rotary Club has voted to donate $500 to kick start the vision. Chairman Peter Evans said “this is the first step to a high school for Bungendore. It is fantastic that Rotary has come on board and donated $500 so we can register our association and undertake some of the administrative tasks to get started. It’s also great to see a community organisation backing our vision. Rotary recognises the tremendous long term benefit a high school will have to the community and the positive effect it will have on Bungendore’s kids. “Already the committee has undertaken discussions with education services providers and have received some very positive support. We will shortly launch our new web page to complement our Facebook listing so we can start to more broadly interact with the community. We are currently formulating a community survey to start the process of data gathering and this will P6 Bungendore Rotary president Peter Bascombe handing the cheque to Peter Evans be sent out around the C2 Area Commands and ACT Police together with the Dog Unit, commenced a search; but were unable to locate him. As investigations continue, police are appealing for anyone with information on the incident to contact them via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. ROSSI HOUSE FIRE On 28 March Police and Fire units from Bungendore, Hoskinstown and Queanbeyan attended a house fire in Rossi Road Rossi. Observant neighbours noticed smoke coming from the house around midday and contacted authorities. Upon
arriving, the fire brigade found the house well engulfed in flames and despite their best efforts the house could not be saved and over $400,000 damage was done. The owner of the house was away at the time and luckily nobody was injured. Police are continuing to investigate the cause of the fire. COLLIDED WITH TREE About 11.30am on 27 March a green Ford Falcon collided with a tree on Shingle Hill Way Bywong. The driver of the vehicle was trapped in the car for some time following the accident. Fire Rescue needed the jaws of C5
C4 life to remove the driver who was taken to Canberra Hospital suffering head injuries. The accident occurred on a bend about 300 metres from the Federal Highway intersection. Police are continuing the investigation and are seeking witnesses. If you saw anything, give Bungendore Police a call. DRIVING LIKE LUNATICS The Highway Patrol have stopped a few people in recent days driving like lunatics on the Kings Highway.

Reliable small engine repairer By John Mitchell Every small engine equipment owner knows how hard it is to find a reliable repairer and for years Bungendore and district owners have travelled to Queanbeyan to benefit from the experience of small engine technician Greg Welch. They no longer have to travel because Greg has set himself up in business at the
Small engine technician Greg Welsh in his Bungendore workshop
Caltex Garage at 44 Malbon Street, trading as Bungendore Chainsaws, Mowers & Hire. He is repairing, servicing and hiring out small engine equipment, including chainsaws and mowers. His main experience is in chainsaws having used and maintained many saws in his former life as a logger and he has attained a service technician qualification through STIHL Chainsaws. Greg is also running the Australia Post mail contract for the Bungendore Village from the workshop and the delivery team are enjoying having well maintained postie bikes. Sometimes the mail contract takes him away from the workshop, but he is never far away and a call on 0459 983 444 will bring him running.

Public transport works for you? Press Release Judith Turley from FuturePLANS says that recent interest from the state government and local transport operators means there is a new light on the horizon. “Public transport already does work for some people in Bungendore. You’ll know that if you catch the bus to school each day or use the Local Link bus on Thursday to get a pick up from home and go into Queanbeyan for shopping. “But did you know that all school buses are also public services? Or that Q-city transit is considering an extra service to link to the express Quean-
beyan to Canberra service at peak hour, and return at the end of the day. Or that anyone can book onto Local Link, a good option for parents at home with young kids?” “A day commute to a midday meeting in Sydney is also very possible by train and allows some good working time there and back.” “Unless you have no other options and do the research, you probably don’t know what is available to you.” FuturePLANS (www.futureplans.org.au) is part of a new Bungendore Public Transport Working Group, made up of Q-city Transit (buses), NSW Government’s Transport Coordinator, Medicare Local, Community Transport, Palerang Council and Bungendore Taxis. The group will aim to promote existing local services

in need of transport to medical services. “Our key demographics at the moment are young people without cars needing to get to social, work and sporting engagements, especially on weekends, and older people needing to travel for shopping, social and medical reasons” said Judith. “But we would also like to achieve some better commuting options to and from Canberra that allow people to capture some lost time relaxing on a bus with ticket prices that are competitive with petrol and parking costs of commuting.” FuturePLANS and other group members will be running an info stall at the Bungendore Family Fun Day on Sunday 6 April.

REPORT FROM TARAGO CWA BRANCH THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS We were saddened by the passing of Ruth’s husband, Rod Corrigan, who was very much a part of the CWA, regularly joining us for lunch after the meetings. He and Norm (Phillips) would entertain us with their stories. Ruth is our current secretary and has served in key positions over the years, bringing to us her knowledge, talents and wit. We now support our dear friend in her loss. Our thoughts and prayers are also with Virginia’s grandson, Noah Berrisford (8 years old) and his family while he undergoes intensive treatment for Burkitts Lymphoma in Westmead Children’s Hospital. Some Goulburn businesses are already running fundraisers to assist the family now and Virginia will let us know how
we can help when Noah comes home. MARCH MEETING Our March meeting was well attended, including our far flung Canberrans, whom we are always glad to see. A very warm welcome to our newest member Mrs Maryanne Brooke and we hope you enjoy being part of our Tarago branch. Agriculture and Environment Officer Faye Webb handed out an interesting booklet on garlic so watch this space for snippets.

Active, inactive objectives As if there isn’t enough double-speak doing the rounds in the R5/E4 debate, we now have the latest mind bender in trying to understand 'active' mandatory objectives versus “inactive objectives” of E4. Shades of the old core promises versus non-core promises. The Council recently advised that "while the E4 zone is an environmental [protection] zone by name, it is a residential zone by nature" and the only 'active' mandatory objective of the E4 zone is “To ensure that residential development does not have an adverse effect on [local] values."
According to the PLEP, there are seven objectives attributed to E4, but apparently, and without any notice to residents, the Planning Department or Council, only one is now 'active.' How did the other six objectives morph from 'active' to 'inactive,' and by whose authority? A bloodhound on steroids couldn’t follow the twists and turns of this debate. In fact, the poor hound would have been dead from exhaustion long ago. Deanne Mitchell Summerhill Road, Bywong
Pro R5 not pro development The Palerang Council and its E4 supporters have not been truthful with the residents of the Palerang Shire over their proposal to rezone the Rural Residential zones to Environmental Protection zone E4. They were not truthful when they stated that E4 was the only option available, they were not truthful when they stated that E4 was the closest available option to Rural Residential, they were not truthful when they stated that R5 had to be adjacent to a village and therefore could not be used anywhere else in the LGA, they were not truthful when they stated that there will be no change and now they are not truthful when they say that the R5 supporters are a pro development group. The assertions by the pro E4 group that the supporters of R5 are a prodevelopment group and their subsequent rantings on the subject are an example of “democracy by fear and decibels and hysterical speculation in the press” of which they have accused the pro R5 supporters. It appears that it OK for them to misrepresent the facts in the press but it is not OK for their opponent to make their
views known in the press and at meetings. I don't how where this assertion that the R5 supporters are pro development comes from, but as far as I am aware it was not raised at any of the meetings that I attended. The objectives for both the E4 and R5 zones are similar where it refers to development and in addition Council can control development by the lot size mechanisms. This assertion that the R5 supporters are a pro-development group is a furphy and another example of the misinformation being peddled by the E4 proponents. The whole argument boils down to this simple fact; the primary purpose of E4 is an environmental protection zone that accommodates low impact residential development whereas the purpose of R5 is to provide residential housing in a rural setting. That is what we have now and that is what we want to retain. Robert Knight The Forest Road, Bywong

Swimmers thank Leanne
Thanks to Scotty's helpers
As you can understand, our pool is one of the only recreational facilities we have in Captains Flat, so it is very important for the physical and social wellbeing of our children, and specially those learning to swim. Before the swimming season started we came very close to losing our pool but fortunately our councillors voted to keep it open. After the worry of that, our community had a busy and very enjoyable pool season. Leanne
On Sunday16 March, Scotty, my beautiful six year old TB, spooked when having his rug taken off and bolted through our double front fence onto Norton Road. We were at the coast at the time and received a call from my very distressed daughter who was looking after Scotty to say that he had gone through the fence and she didn’t know where he was. We then received another call some 20 minutes later to say he had come home and was back in a paddock, much to my great relief. We have been finding additional information about where he got to in that time and, it’s frightening to think of what did happen, and what could have happened, without the help from unknown people in the area. Today, 23 March, I discovered that Scotty travelled to Merino Vale Drive (from home at 726 Norton Road) and unfortunately spooked three horses belonging to Karen Sutcliffe who happened to be leading them along Merino Vale. Karen’s horses also then bolted following a still out-of-control Scotty to the end of the street where Scotty turned around but two of Karen’s horses jumped a fence into another property, then jumped back out again. Luckily, it seems Karen’s horses will be OK despite some cuts and bruises. I wish to publicly thank Karen for
Ezzy, the Palerang Council appointed Life Guard, gave lessons and out of the kindness of her heart, and presented the children in the 'Captains Flat Swim Team' with T-Shirts and Certificates. We are very grateful to her for her time and energy, and the great job she did. You can see for yourself from the attached photo how happy and proud the children were of themselves. Shirley Hogan Mulga Street, Captains Flat
A rare rose for the Mirror Some folks will have detected that I write the occasional, some might say odd, letter to this paper. I think that it is fair to say that the Mirror's editor, John Mitchell, and I do not have the same world view. Notwithstanding that, our differences have never intruded on what has grown into a good friendship over my years of correspondence, and that is as it should be. John has always published my letters without fear or favour and, to the best of my knowledge, he has never altered, amended, changed, or otherwise
edited my letters. On just two occasions he has telephoned me and asked: ”Do you really want to say that?” And, on reflection, I have agreed with him and asked him not to publish those letters. John takes his job and his responsibilities seriously and is pretty relentless in pursuing local issues, particularly as they relate to our Council. I don’t always agree with him but nevertheless he makes us think and that can only be a good thing. I think that we are darned lucky to have him. Kerry Bos Williamsdale Road, Burra
“..Rick Beviss, in support of the Weereewa Festival, the Bungendore community and its musicians and Bungendore businesses, decided to proceed with the event as a private concert, welcoming all-comers.”
Rick Beviss saves the day
Bungendore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) were asked by the Weereewa Festival to sponsor and organise a local musical event on Sunday16 March. The aim was to showcase local talent and attract Weereewa’s national and international visitors to Bungendore’s central business area.

Many congratulations and thanks go to them, and of course to Rick Beviss who saved the day. Festival goers were last seen cavorting and dancing in the autumnal Bungendorian sunshine! It is suggested, with great courtesy, that Palerang Council review their policy and mechanism for allowing public functions on private land, to include reinstatement of the instrument that was applied to Rick Beviss' bandstand in 2010.

her efforts in trying to catch Scotty when he was bolting back up Merino Vale Drive. An out-of-control horse is a very dangerous thing and it takes a very brave person to try and stop it, thanks Karen. Karen told me that “Barry from Weeroona Drive” was also trying to control and alert traffic along Norton Road by travelling behind Scotty with his hazard lights on and helped her in trying to catch Scotty and her horses in Merino Vale Drive. Barry, you have my utmost gratitude for what you did and I would like to thank you personally. If you see this, please call me on 0431 896 196. Scotty didn’t stop despite Karen and Barry’s efforts and ended up back on Norton Road and, thankfully, for some reason went home. I understand that others stopped and helped round up Scotty at our property. A huge thank you to you all. Scotty was injured during this episode and had a potentially career-ending injury to his fetlock. He had an operation on Monday afternoon at Canberra Equine Hospital and it seems now that he will be OK after 3-4 weeks in the stable and lots of medication and TLC. Rob Lillie Norton Road, Wamboin

Small farm brimming with food By Angie Angel A small acreage in Denley Drive, Wamboin, is brimming this harvest season with produce, and the owner/ farmers, Karl and Mary Jane Burk, helped along by daughters Sally Anne and Stephanie, have an excess of vegetables, fruit and goat’s milk products. The couple have been very obvious by their presence and quality offerings at the Bungendore Produce Swaps. Karl is the cheesemaker, and Mary Jane makes the preserves, jams, relishes, cheesecakes, and also makes goat milk soap. Her pickles and jams regularly end up for sale at the Feed Shed in Bungendore. Food is prepared with imagination and thought, depending on what is in season. Goats milk ice cream with berries is a family favourite. The couple’s table is brimming with chemical and preservative free delicacies such as pickled zucchinis, tomato relish, apple juice, Mary Jane’s gnocchi with goats cheese and, when in
“The couple are too attached to the goats to keep them for goat meat, but the milk and cheeses provide much of the household’s protein.”

Karl is making a variety of soft cheeses from the goat milk, such as cream cheese, fetta and quark. “With hard cheeses,” Karl said, “you have to age the cheeses, a much longer process. I’m making Wensleydale, a hard cheese originally made from sheep’s milk.” A saunter around the grounds of the property is truly inspiring. A dense canopy of nearly every herb imaginable has the double function of enhancing food and being cut to provide extra feed for the goats. Ducks and chickens have their own segregated open areas, and the thirteen Saanen goats look shiny, well cared for, are tame and well handled, and are of a show standard in their own right. The couple are too attached to the goats to keep them for goat meat, but the milk and cheeses provide much of the household’s protein. “It’s good goat country here,” Karl said. “They’re small and affectionate animals. A lot of people who are intolerant of cow’s milk, can consume goat’s milk quite easily.” A perusal of the vegetable garden brings up a vegetable with which I was unfamiliar – a Yacon or Peruvian Ground Apple, a winter harvested sweet tuber which, once peeled of the skin, is eaten raw.

& CRAFT EXHIBITIONS Successful �Weereewa' wrapped up ART IN THE PALERANG DISTRICT Press Release Gorman House Arts Centre in Canberra Civic was the venue for the final events of this year’s 'Weereewa- a Festival of Lake George.' The day included a five hour traditional and contemporary basket weaving workshop led by Nowra based artist Lissa-Jane de Sailles. A Chorus of Women wove their vocal magic at the end of this workshop and then led a procession amidst a heavy downpour along the covered walkways to The Ralph Wilson Theatre. Walking on water.. and other miracles was the somewhat quizzical title of a performance by Mirramu Dance Company, Dancecology from Taiwan and Damansara Performing Arts Centre Dance Company, who are here in a cultural exchange to work with

dance mentor Dr Elizabeth Cameron Dalman OAM. As a closing event for a festival that has relied largely on the goodwill of many practitioners in the arts and culture, hospitality and media industries, it seemed particularly apposite. In her concluding address, Festival Chair Barbie Robinson thanked its financial sponsors Infigen, Bendigo and Braidwood Community Banks and the Country Arts Support Program of Regional Arts NSW, and paid homage to the festival’s founder Dr Cameron Dalman OAM and all those whose passion and commitment had seen this festival through so successfully as a celebration of Weereewa/ Lake George and excellence in regional arts, culture, food, wine and environmental science discussion.

Daniel Edwards and father Donald with the Barbwire Cup
By Vince Skeehan Bungendore Bowling Club keeps the Barbwire Cup with a narrow win of only five shots. Captains Flat were ahead at halftime and looked certain to be the better team on the slow green. Both teams 'beefed up' during the break with a full roast beef lunch. A cut and sliced roast from Paul Darmody at the Country Butchery melted in our mouths and the damper from Gunnadoo Bakery wiped the plates clean. There was more than enough for second helpings because only eighteen players contested this year and forty were catered for. Leftovers were shared between the background workers and the rest of the stock set aside for our Ladies Carnival on Wednesday 2 April.

By Kate Mitchell Well folks, it’s that time of year again! Get ready for the ride of your (or somebody elses) life at the 2014 Braidwood Rodeo to be held at the Showground on Saturday 12 April. We may not be able to muster much dust after all this rain but at least the ground should be forgiving for the roughstock competitors. Once again the Braidwood Rodeo will host the ABCRA Southern Zone finals ensuring all the best competitors from far and wide will be battling for points to guarantee themselves a shiny new trophy buckle or saddle. Rodeo stock will also be putting on their best performances in the roughstock events of Bull Riding, Bareback and Bronc Riding. Highly skilled cowpeeps and their well-trained mounts will be testing their skill and agility in the timed events which include Barrel Racing, Team Roping, Steer Wrestling & Undecorating, Rope & Tie and Breakaway Roping. So that means all the crowd has to do is muster themselves, slap on a hat, boots and a bit of rodeo bling and head on out to the Braidwood Showground for more bang than you could
brought up a temprite from the south coast. Each player received a commemorative bottle of port, supplied at cost from the Local Liquor and relabelled for the event by Chris Powell. Bobby-Lee Moran ran the bar in her ever proficient fashion, set service, served the scones and washed up." The embellished 'Barbwire Cup' was presented as we supped on scones and finished the keg. As we left the Club in the late afternoon we were all full. Some full of tucker and others full of beer and spirits. One thing was sure; we were all full in heart and mind having enjoyed the company of friends and social sport. Thanks to all for a great day. Captains Flat hosts the cup next year.
expect for your buck. There will be bulls, broncs, roping and riding. There will be hanging on, getting hung up and getting thrown out the back door. There will be can chasing- in the arena and at the bar. There will be a whole lot of people who know how to entertain and be entertained. There will be foodstalls, sideshows, street stalls and a mechanical bull. If that’s not enough there will be a few locals throwing their hats in the ring, and themselves about the arena. Once again the rodeo will feature a Local Steer Ride, a Local Barrel Race, a Poddy Ride and there is even whispers of a Poly Buckjump. Entries for these events will be taken at the Office in the Collett Stand on the day before 10am or until limited spaces are filled. And as rodeo is not for the feint hearted the action doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. It is then time to head indoors and kick your heels up at the Presentation Dinner. Have a hearty feed and dance the night away to the tunes of the ‘Lumpy Underdaks’. Gates open early with the Main Events gaining momentum from 11am. Entry is $15 adults, or $5 for kids and concession. The P11
Mitch third in the ‘Tour de Perth' Press Release Bungendore cyclist Mitchell Lovelock-Fay, riding for the Avanti Racing Team, has finished third in the four stage ‘Tour de Perth.' Mitch safely navigated through a crash which marred the first stage criterium in Fremantle, with only 35 riders of the150 starters finishing. In stage two, a 116km road race around Kalamunda, Mitch finished fourth in a hill top finish with Tim Roe, a former BMC team-mate of Cadel Evans, and Travis Meyer, a five time world champion on the track, and a former pro tour rider. Stage 3 saw Mitch placed third in a time trial around Rottnest Island behind teammate Joe Cooper and Michael Mitchell Lovelock-Fay riding in the Tour de Perth
Vink, both from NZ, completing the 20km’s in a time of 25:17. This moved Mitch up from fourth to third in the general classification. In the final stage, a 14 lap race totalling 114km around Perry Lakes, Mitch successfully finished in the bunch sprint, after being out in the break for most of the race. This saw Mitch safely defend his third position for the tour. Avanti Racing Team members finished first (Joe Cooper), third (Mitch) and fifth (Ben Dyball), and claimed the teams classification for the tour. Mitch now also sits third in a very classy field in the Subaru National Road Series after the first event of the season.
