Once again Carnegie Caulfield is entering a team (or teams) in the exciting National Junior Track Series. Last year we had a top-3 finish against the strongest Clubs and combines in the country.
Open to U15 and U17 riders, the series offers riders the opportunity to race around Australia against the best the country has to offer. We do not need to field the same group of riders every race and indeed last year 12 riders had the opportunity of riding for the team and a further 10 raced in Melbourne when we were able to field more than one team.
Race venues and dates are as follows:
- Sydney , 13 and 14 October, 2012
- Perth, 3 and 4 November, 2011
- Launceston, 7 and 8 December, 2012
- Adelaide, 22 January, 2013
- Melbourne, 23 February, 2012
Last year the Club provided accommodation, hire of a bus while interstate, some meals, and paid for a coach and chaperone to travel with the team, with a subsidy from Cycling Australia covering most of the travel expenses, so the event did not cost riders very much at all to attend. Teams travel together by plane with the Club coach and chaperone.
At this point we are not looking to select teams for individual races however if you are interested in being considered for a team please email Juniors@carnegiecycling.com.au and let us know:
- Age Category (U15 or U17)
- Which rounds you are interested in racing in (feel free to say “all”!)
