Track cycling state champs launches national contention for local riders

MIDVALE was home to the State Track Cycling Championships last month, seeing cyclists from across the state come together to compete in an exciting weekend of both sprint and endurance events.

The Championships were hosted by XSpeed Australia Cycle Club on February 4-6 at Venueswest Speedome which saw athletes competing for medals in the junior, elite and masters categories with some performing highly enough to compete in the Auscycling National Track Championships being held in Brisbane later this month.

“After having all travel cancelled for the last two years, this year is especially exciting for our athletes,” said Claire Sibbel from the club.

“They can’t wait to race against the best of the best nationally and to make new friends.”

Track events in Brisbane include Individual Pursuit, Omnium, Kierin, Sprints, Scratch Race, Points Race to name a few.

XSpeed Junior WA Team members include Jasmine McGough (U15) Scarlett Sibbel (U17 Sam Washington (U17) Billy Summerville (U17) Sally Carter (U19) Jack Dohler (U19) and our XSpeed Elite WA Team members include: Jack Lightfoot, Johnny Carter and Isla Carr.

  1. Come on guys, this should be about promoting all juniors selected for the WA State Team,this sounds like a paid advertisement for X-Speed. By way congratulations to all the selected athletes regardless of club.
