2002 Australian National Track Cycling Championships

Dunc Gray Velodrome, Australia, April 17 - 21, 2002

Day 1: Queensland and WA take the major honours

The first day of the Australian National Track championships saw a victorious Queensland team take home the two major time trial events, with Danny Day winning the Men's 1 kilometre time trial and Kerrie Meares winning the Women's 500m time trial.

Runner-up to Day was former world champion Shane Kelly (Vic), who covered the 1000 metres in 1.04.414, compared to Day's winning time of 1.04.162, with Ben Kersten of NSW in third with a time of 1.04.582.

Following Kerrie Meares' winning time of 35.444 in the Women's 500 metre time trial was her sister Anna, with a time of 36.365, while Rosealee Hubbard (SA) took the bronze in 36.984.

In the other major timed event for the evening, the Men's 4 kilometre Individual Pursuit, Western Australian Peter Dawson won gold after catching his opponent in the final, Stephen Wooldridge (NSW), after 12.5 laps. Earlier in the evening, Wooldridge had actually posted the fastest time in qualifying or the heats, with a 4.31.729. But he seemed to overdo his effort and was caught in the final by Dawson, whose best time for the evening was slightly slower, at 4.32.096.

The other events held on Day 1 included the U19 Men's Team Sprint (formerly known as the Olympic Sprint), won by the Queensland squad of Wade Cosgrove, Grant Irwin and Clint Johnson in a time of 48.664. The maroon colours were on top again, courtesy of the Meares sisters, with Kerrie posting the fastest time for the Flying 200 metres in 11.884, Anna second in 12.032 and Rosealee Hubbard (SA) in 12.160.

The only joy for NSW was the Gold in the U19 Women's 500 metre Time Trial to Rebecca Borgo, who covered the distance in 37.585, Tiffany Goodfrey (VIC) taking silver with 38.024 and Lucy Stewart (ACT) third in 38.617.

The Men's U19 Points Race was won by Victorian rider Nicholas Sanderson, from Christopher Sutton and Mark Jamieson (TAS) in third.
