Greetings and sorry for an absence of communication last week,
First up a huge congrats to all our riders who competed in Adelaide at the Oceania Track Champs recently – some absolutely stunning results from everyone and a bit of a scare with a big crash as well. Luckily everyone was okay and plenty of smiling faces returned safely home. Well done to all riders, along with the superb support and management team – you all make us very proud when you are away.
Then it is more congratulations for our Elite riders who have just been competing at the World Cup in Paris – more great results all round with Kirstie James getting silver with her pursuit team, Eddie Dawkins getting silver in the keirin and Natasha Hansen and Emma Cumming pulling out some fantastic sprint racing in the team and individual events just missing the podium more than once. Congratulations to all who were competing.
