The stars of Australia's recent multiple World Championship winning junior track team will hit the roads of Queensland's Sunshine Coast this weekend, when the Sunshine State plays host to the 2006 National Junior & Teams Road Cycling Championships and the Women's National Grand Prix Series.

The headline act in the week long carnival of cycling won't come from the senior ranks, with the field in tomorrow's Under 19 men's road race containing national and world champions.

"Fantastic quality," was how Cycling Australia's Tom Skulander described the field during the official event launch at picturesque Peregian Springs.

Skulander was referring to the recent performances of Western Australia's magnificent Meyer brothers, Victoria's Leigh Howard, South Australia's Jack Bobridge and Queensland's Hayden Josefski, who together brought home a bagful of gold medals at the recent World Junior Track Championships in Ghent, Belgium.
