Just one thing could make Rebecca McConnell smile more than claiming the Australian mountain bike cross country crown.
And that is watching her husband Dan McConnell reclaim his own national champions jersey at the Mountain Bike Australia national championships in Victoria.
Rebecca McConnell's latest triumph perhaps means more than most after she reshaped her attitude this year in a bid to appreciate every moment and not get swamped in past disappointments or what is to come.
The pair topped the elite women and elite men categories respectively, with Rebecca finishing in 1:25:04.42 to edge out Holly Harris and Kathryn McInerney.
Dan McConnell completed his ride in 1:26:04.15 to finish clear of close rival Cameron Ivory and Reece Tucknott.
