Melbourne has scored the job of hosting the 2012 UCI World Track Championships. Woohoo!!!!!
Last time they were held in Melbourne (2004) I was in the crowd, as a new racing cyclist. I fell in love with this fast, exhilirating version of competitive cycling and was inspired to give it a crack. The following year I was on a track bike, and a year after that racing track.
So the UCI World Track Champs have a special place on my honour roll, having been the inspiration for me to give track racing a go.
I can't wait!!!
