Damien Jones – @hamptoncycles_damo
Brad Clarke and Damien Jones have teamed up to open Mornington Cycles. Both riders have established themselves amongst the Mountain Bike and Road cycling community with some fantastic results over the years.
Some of Brad’s recent achievements have included representing Australia at the UCI Men’s Masters MTB World Championships in Andorra in 2015, finishing 16th in the world after starting a long way back in 37th out of a 80 strong field. This capped off an amazing season after also having won both the Oceanic and Australian Championship in the XCO Olympic distance cross country discipline. Along with these fantastic achievements, he was also nominated and then awarded the Cycling Australia Masters Mountain Biker of the year award for 2015.
Damien and Brad are accustomed to working closely together as a team having recently competed in the gruelling and world renowned ABSA Cape Epic in March of 2016. The Absa Cape Epic was ranked as the third toughest multiday event in the world with 1200 riders and 600 teams taking on the event each year. Not only did they finish the 8 day race, climbing 15,000m with a distance of 650km, but also managed to finish up 3rd in the Men’s Masters category, 33rd overall and finishing on the podium four of the eight days.
Having worked as a professional Engineer for the past 20 years, Brad has finally realised his dream of opening up his own cycling store, and is also proud to have recruited an experienced team of riders working within the Mornington Cycles team with knowledge across all the cycling disciplines.
Brad is also trained as a Body Geometry Fit specialist, and will be offering this service to the cycling community using the in-store Retul Muve bike.
Races both Road & Mountain Bikes and has been quite successful at both. With podium finishes at the Melbourne to Warrnambool Road race and the Otway Odyssey Mtb race. He is just as happy on a short criterium race as he is on stage races and long 1 day endurance events. If its got 2 wheels ‘Damo’ loves to ride it.
Damien is also a qualified BG Fit Technician and has completed his Bachelors Program with the Specialized University.
