Dajka pleads guilty to assault charge

Australian 2002 World Keiren Champion Jobie Dajka has pleaded guilty to assaulting national cycling coach Martin Barras, according to a report by AAP. The charges relate to an alleged incident at Adelaide's Superdrome track in June, 2005.

Dajka had been banned from competition for three years by Cycling Australia and was dumped from Australia's Athens Olympic Games team for lying to a drugs inquiry. The hearing will resume in December when the assault charge will be heard in addition to pleas for a string of unrelated charges.
