Barras confirmed Australian Track Coach

The Cycling Australia (CA) Board of Management met over the weekend and reinforced its support for National Head Track Coach, Martin Barras and the Track Sprint Program. The Board reconfirmed its confidence in Barras and the program as it adopted the decision announced last Thursday by the Disciplinary Committee appointed to investigate an assault on Barras by athlete, Jobie Dajka.

"It has been a tough week or so for all involved in this process but no-one has suffered more than Martin", said CA CEO Graham Fredericks after Saturday's Board meeting. "With a predominant public focus on Dajka's health and the reasons behind the attack it was easy to overlook the trauma this has caused the individuals in the track sprint squad and the potential long-term impact this incident could have on the program.
