I have looked through the time's for events at the recent Australian Masters Track Titles. Recall writing a couple of years back that standards would continue to improve. Some very classy gifted riders, like David Willmott are excellent in whatever age group they ride. Having said this depth is coming from the younger age groups up and as these riders push up, so does the standard.
In my age group, sprint,TT and pursuit were down to two riders. No Keith Oliver, John Lewis not well and me laid up but others who raced last year just decided to have a break. The women who raced were all excellent but I am sure they would appreciate more riding their own age group.
There are many female riders with track bikes and track skills so why they don't ride is beyond me. You can put on events but can't make people race, so girls don't bother having a go at me, it's a fact!!
