Winding up our coverage of the Australian Junior Track Championships, Sam Jenner finished the meet with a terrific performance in the 2000m individual pursuit. Sam’s qualifying time was fifth fastest, narrowly missing out on the ride-off for the bronze medal. Just to be clear that’s fifth fastest in Australia and a great effort considering the limited experience Sam has had on the track.
Last weekend Sam along with Freya Weston were accepted into the NIAS cycling program. A number of other riders were not far off selection, and with another year’s racing under their belts will be very competitive next time around. Our congratulations to both Sam and Freya.
This Thursday Britt Sisson will be competing in the Australian All Schools Triathlon Championship in Redcliff Queensland. After an eye catching performance in the Autumn Festival Crit and some solid training sessions riding at 60kmh around Kelly’s Plains behind Wilko’s Vespa, Britt will no doubt raise a few eyebrows in the bike leg.
Finally, a reminder that next Monday 4 April the Junior Committee will be meeting at 6.30pm at the Bowling Club. Please come along if you can.
