AIS Women's Training Camp

In early December, Cyclingnews publisher Gerard Knapp and advertising sidekick Kristy Scrymgeour visited the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra for a look at how they do things in the nerve centre of Australian sport. During the visit, which coincided with an AIS women's training camp, they spoke to the survivors of the tragic accident that killed Amy Gillett in July, and also to the new generation of Australian female cyclists who are following in the footsteps of Anna Millward and Oenone Wood.

In the following three stories, we interviewed AIS women's coach Warren McDonald, up and coming talent Amanda Spratt, and the survivors of the German tragedy.
