With a successful assault on the South Australian state titles under their belts, Westbury’s O’Callaghan family is ready for the next challenge.
Having returned from Kadina late last month, Patrick and daughters Hayley (12) and Sophie (nine) will fly to the Victorian state championships this week to continue what has already been a successful year.
Patrick enjoyed a dominant weekend at the South Australian titles, winning every race he entered to finish with 20-inch and 24-inch titles in the 55-year-category, while Hayley and Sarah both enjoyed top-six finishes in their respective finals.
The former Australian number 1 said the weekend had been a good lead-up for the Victorian titles.
“The competition will be a lot tougher this time,” Patrick said.
“There will be a lot more riders there and just making the finals would be an achievement.”
