The Sports Carnival Association of Tasmania (SCAT) is happy to announce that Sarah Kent and Camille Jones-Pallett from Western Australia will be riding the National Grid Tasmanian Christmas Carnivals series.
Kent is the current Australian Junior Women's champion for the individual pursuit and set an Australian record as part of the team sprint. She is no slouch on the road either, as she currently holds the Australian junior title for the road pairs time trial.
Jones-Pallett teamed with Sarah to set the new Australian record in the teams sprint. Camille will be more favoured for the longer distances as she is the current Australian junior champion in the women's road race, criterium and pairs time trial.
Both girls are 16 years-old and will enjoy the challenge of stepping up to race against the senior women in the series. Both girls are coached by Rick Lee who is bringing out a team of 10 riders to the series.
Grant Atkins, President of SCAT, believes that the addition of these women will make for some exciting racing and will certainly challenge our local girls. "Its great to get the calibre of Sarah and Camille to race at the Carnivals and the fact they are coming from Western Australia shows the value of series," concluded Atkins.
