Mr GREG PIPER (Lake Macquarie)—Lake Macquarie has a new mountain biking world champion in Jack Moir from Yarrawonga Park who took out the 2021 Enduro World Series in Scotland last month. Not only did Jack win the global event, but did so while competing with a dislocated shoulder during the seventh round of the nine-round series. Jack has long been a mountain biking legend and can regularly be found flying down the spectacular trails of Awaba Mountain Bike Park at Cooranbong. But this accolade proves what many in our local mountain biking community have suspected, that he is in fact the best in the world. Over the past 10 years Jack has overcome a myriad of obstacles and injuries to get where he is. Some noteworthy accomplishments include being named the Australian National Downhill Champion in 2017, securing second place in the Fort William Downhill World Cup, finishing in fourth place in the 2017 Cairns Downhill World Championships and landing himself on the Enduro World Series podium nine times. I extend my congratulations to Jack on an amazing achievement and wish him well in defending his world crown.
