Meares sisters head lineup for Australian track champ's

The stars of Australian cycling will be in action next week when Adelaide's Super-Drome plays host to the 2005 Australian Track Cycling Championships. Headlining the six day event is Athens Olympic gold medallist, World Champion and world record holder for the 500 m time trial, Anna Meares, 21, who will come up against her sister and major rival Kerrie, 22, in the women's sprint events.

The Queensland sisters have qualified for the upcoming World Championships in Los Angeles (March 23-27) and both are eager to claim the Australian Champions jersey with Anna defending titles in the 500 m time trial and sprint. Kerrie is continuing her successful comeback from a back injury which saw her sit out the Athens Games.
