A big surprise for the Gympie club was the announcement of Olga Stevsky and Stan Jorgenson as the winners of the Sportsmen of the Year award. This award isn’t necessarily presented to a rider but to someone who has contributed their time and energy to the sport during the year.
Olga and Stan work tirelessly behind the scenes collating all the entries for the rides during the year and attend every ride working with the clubs at sign-in and scrutineering.
