The Sports Carnivals Association of Tasmania [SCAT] has announced that Australian track stars Joel Leonard and Jason Niblitt from Victoria will ride at the Nationalgrid Tasmania Christmas Carnivals. They will join the likes of Shane Kelly, Ben Kersten, Jon Norfolk of Great Britain, Daniel Ellis and Scott Sunderland at the carnivals, providing an abundance of pure speed in the sprint events.
24-year-old Leonard, who rides for the Footscray Club is the current Australian sprint and keirin champion, having won the title in Adelaide earlier this year. 22-year-old Nibblit, from Horsham in country Victoria, has represented Australia at this year's Oceania Games in New Zealand. According to organisers, this latest announcement provides even more reasons why the sprint, derby, lap dash and keirin events at this year's carnivals will be something not to be missed.
