The Australian Sports Commission's National Talent Identification and Development program, in conjunction with Cycling Australia, is identifying talented female athletes, aged 17 to 27, for road time trialling. The aim of the program is to provide athletes with an enriching environment and improved training, coaching and competition structures that will fast-track development to Olympic and world championship levels of competition.
Candidates should have a background in endurance sports such as (but not limited to) triathlon, cycling, rowing, swimming or distance running, a passion to be an elite cyclist, the dedication to join an elite development training squad and a desire to be an Australian Olympian. They must be available for physiological testing in a capital city between February 21 and March 3 and for a training camp in Melbourne between March 15-21 (camp costs covered by the NTID program) if selected for further involvement in the program.
