SKCC Track riders smash the field apart at this week’s Australian Master Games.
But first the track squad continues to train for those Victorian club track titles to be held in January. With teams now formed across most categories, riders training within those teams are well under way.

Our women’s track team continue to train strong – Sarah dropping in nicely during the pursuit training.
Above – Shane Kelly explains to the women’s sprint team the tactics in the race and where to lay-off and where to lay it all on the line during last Saturday nights training session. Its tactics like this that will give that little edge over the competition.
Over the past couple of weeks our home grown SKCC trackies have been racing down at “sleepy hollow” in Geelong in the Vets and Aussie Games road and track titles.
For the track riders, a number of our regular trackies brought home medals who included names like Marita Box, Dale Maizels, Ray Box to name a few. Well done guys.
