Australian team on track for Commonwealth Games

After the final racing of the Australian Track Championships finished, Australia's National Track Coach Martin Barras believes the overall situation of his athletes is looking 'satisfactory' heading into the Commonwealth Games. Two athletes in particular stand out as near certainties for gold medals.

"Mactier [Katie] I think is a standout ," said Barras. "Kate Bates would be right next to it - after that, everything else we're going to have to fight for." Barras was also impressed with the performances of the Meares sisters, and is confident Australia's track endurance riders will lift to another level once their current heavy training phase comes to an end.
