Australian under-19 team to ride nationals

Members of the Australian junior team will ride this week’s 2005 National Road Cycling Championships on the Sunshine Coast for the first time. The separation this year of the senior and junior world championships has enabled the top young riders to return home in time for their national championships.

Riders from the current National Road Team include Western Australian Cameron Meyer; NSW riders Luke Cridland from Sydney and Mitch Chapman from Orange, while the impressive Tiffany Cromwell from Upper Sturt in South Australia will be a rider to watch in the U19 women’s category.

The Australian junior Track Team will also be supplying some of the big stars. Last year cycling prodigy Scott Sunderland of Busselton, WA was simply unbeatable in the Under 17’s winning the National Title in all three individual titles (Road Race, Time Trial and Criterium) and silver in the Pairs Time Trial. This year he moved to the Under 19s and has won medals in the World Kilo and Team Sprint Championships.

Sunderland is joined by fellow track representatives Todd Dawson, of Willowbank, Qld and Skye-Lee Armstrong, Bella Vista, Sydney.
