Australian Junior Track Cycling Championships in Launceston

By Rod Morris

Australia junior cycling talent will be on display at this weekend's Australian Junior Track Championships at the Launceston Silverdome in Tasmania. A total of 116 riders from every Australian State and Territory will contest the four day championships, starting on Friday at 10:00am. The Championships will be held over twice daily sessions, with three sessions scheduled for Sunday.

Riders will have the chance to contest a variety of events, including scratch race, 500 m Time Trial, Individual Pursuit (2000 m), Sprint and Teams Pursuit titles. A new event on the program will be the 1-lap Time Trial, which has replaced the old 200 m Sprint trial. In the case of the Silverdome, this event will be over 285 m and the early favourite should be West Australian Scott Sunderland, who was clocked at 19.24 seconds at Perth's Midvale Superdrome.
