Victorian Junior Track Team

With the National Track Titles commencing today, it was a great experience to watch the juniors race over the weekend at State Titles. We do have excellent talent in Victoria, some obvious, some hiding away about to grow and bloom. I saw some very dedicated riders, and their supportive parents, who work hard behind the scenes to help keep the sport running, as well as providing the resources for their kids to do their very best.

The team was announced at the end of the championships, and it’s a good mix of the usual suspects and new. I am really looking forward to seeing the team gel over the next 6 or so weeks at training, and hearing about their performances at Nationals after Easter. There are some raw talents that should polish up well, and our potential teams pursuit four should be very strong contenders for a place in Sydney.
