In the U19 mens 1000m Time Trial, Jeremy Hogg (1.10.95) took line honours from Haydon Josefski (1.11.04) and Todd Dawson (1.11.15). Following suit, the elite men took to the Velodrome in windy conditions, with Grant Irwin (Rockhampton) riding a fantastic time trial to win in 1.06.88. Irwin showed strength and form right to the finish line to finish ahead of Daniel Rynne from Kangaroo Point (1.10.23) and Bradley Payne of CATS (1.10.81). Irwin's sensational form also earnt him a track record for the 1000m time trial, beating the previous winner, Wade Cosgrove whose time ranged in the 1.07s.

U19 and Elite Womens Sprint - Bright Beats Lovely

In the elite womens sprint, the Rockhampton women collected the trifecta with Anouska Edwards defeating Suellen Topp (Toowoomba Cycling Club) for the bronze medal in 2 straight sets. The gold and silver medal ride off was between Alex Bright and Deborah Lovely, Athens Olympic weightlifter turned cyclist. In a toughly contested battle, Lovely took the first round over Bright, however Bright returned in round 2 to lead out the sprint at the 200m mark, holding off Lovely in the bends and coming home the victor, calling for a deciding 3rd round. The 3rd round proved to be a battle of who could withstand pain the longest, with Bright coming round the outside to claim the victory by less than half a wheel at the line.

Rockhampton also faired well in the U19 womens sprint, with Samantha Schutz and Laura Edwards battling it out for the bronze medal, with Schutz coming out the victor in 2 straight rounds. The gold medal went to Australian Junior Track Member Hayley Wright (Balmoral) and the silver to Chloe Macpherson (Mackay Cycling Club) who rode to 3 rounds after Macpherson took the first round, riding a strong race from the front at the 200m mark to withhold Wright. Wright returned for the final 2 rounds to beat Macpherson, who put up a good fight against a stronger opponent.

Anouska Edwards (4.17.81) had a big night in the saddle, also contesting the elite womens 3000m individual pursuit along with the sprint, claiming the silver medal behind Anna Jones Perrin from Hamilton Pine Rivers (4.09.85) and Sonya Keay, also of Hamilton Pine Rivers (4.42.11).
