Australian Madison Championships in Melbourne

The Australian Madison Championship will be held in Melbourne's Vodafone Arena on Saturday, February 5. The madison will count towards selection for the Australian national team for World Cups and the World Championship, which means former success and Olympic glory will count for nothing as 15 two-man teams fight it out at over 50km/h for the honour of becoming the next Madison Champion. The race will be held over 40 km/200 laps of the steeply banked Vodafone Arena.

A top flight field has been confirmed for the event, including Olympic, World and Commonwealth Games Champion Steve Wooldridge (NSW), World and National Champion Ashley Hutchinson (Qld), Junior World Champions Miles Olman (Qld) and Matthew Goss (Tas), and past Australian champion Darren Young (Tas).

The Australian Madison Championship will also have a full support carnival including a feature Wheelrace, the next round of the Vodafone Keirin Series and numerous other events including pointscore and scratch races
