American cyclist Jame Carney continued his love affair with Tasmania with victory in the Mersey Valley - Devonport Cycling Club's annual Forestry Tasmania Carnival yesterday, Sunday, January 11. Carney (35) is currently enjoying his sixth - and possibly last - trip to Australia as a competitive cyclist, but he was able to show a clean pair of heels to his younger opponents in the 2000 m final. Carney had little trouble qualifying for the final and with a good crop of fellow backmarkers to call on, was able to reel in the front bunch, which included the in-form Ben Price, who eventually finished fourth behind the three scratchmen, Carney, Darren Young and Nathan Clarke.

Consistent Launceston rider Ryan Johnson missed out on the major spoils, finishing fifth behind Price. Carney failed to win any of the major wheelraces over the Basslink Tasmanian Christmas Carnival Series, but has still been a consistent finalist and kept all those around him honest. He finished second to Stephen Rossendell in last week's Hobart Wheel and will be one of the favourite's for next Saturday's 50th annual St Helen's Wheel.

Carney's countrywoman Becky Conzleman claimed her second successive wheelrace, winning the MVDCC Wheel off scratch, while Carney also enjoyed success in the A Grade Scratch. Ulverstone's Ben Price won the 1000 m Lightning Handicap, while another of the Americans, Kevin Belz, won the Sprint Derby. The junior MVDCC wheelraces were won by Samantha Hellyer (Under 17), Ben Grenda (Under 15) and Madison Catlin (Under 13).
