The National Talent Identification and Development Program (NTID) of the Australian Sports Commission in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) Women's Road Cycling Program are seeking highly trained, motivated females with a passion to compete in time trials.

Since the time trial is an Olympic event in the upcoming 2008 Beijing games, the AIS is looking for women who can quickly make the transition into the time trial discipline.

Those interested shall provide: contact info; date of birth; height; body mass; a history of significant performances in triathlon, duathlon, rowing, cycling, distance running, or other endurance events; any available physiological testing data; and an essay on why you think you have what it takes to be a world class female road time trialist. Applicants must be able to attend a testing session at the AIS in Canberra on December 11-12 and must be able to compete in the national road cycling time trial in January 2007. The NTID program will cover flights, food and accommodation whilst in Canberra for invited applicants.

Applications are due on December 1, 2006. Contact Tammie Ebert at tammie.ebert@ausport.gov.au for more details on application requirements.
