Carney in Tasmania again

The Sports Carnivals Association of Tasmania (SCAT) has announced that American cycling Champion Jame Carney will again ride at this year’s Tasmanian Christmas Carnivals. Following his win in last year’s Launceston Wheel Race, Carney declared that he was considering retirement from the sport and unlikely to ride again in Tasmania, where he has been a star at the Carnivals in recent years.

Carney, in his coaching role with the US Cycling Federation, will also bring with him an increased number of American cyclists, including past Carnival performers Bobby Lea, Mike Friedman and Josh Kerkhoff. The new riders this year will include USA National Madison Champion Elliott Gaunt.
