Towering over the bunch due to his immense size, Lachlan Darch is a promising young time-trialist who can’t be discounted up a hill either. “Darchie”, as he is known to his teammates, had a solid year in 2017 learning the NRS bunch whilst continuing his studies of Exercise and Sports Science at the University of South Australia.
Still with lots to learn, Darch also showed his willingness to work for others while gaining as much experience as possible.
“I learnt a lot in regards to racing in 2017, so I think I will be able to improve a lot more in 2018. Also, having support to continue studying and working part time makes life a lot easier.”
