Perth International Grand Prix

Australian track cyclists will be present at the Midvale Speed Dome in Perth, WA, this Saturday to do battle on the boards of the tightly banked 250m indoor track. The Perth International Grand Prix will be the last major event for the Australian junior track cycling team before it heads overseas for the World Championships in Austria next month.

WAIS cycling coach Darryl Benson said the Speed Dome track, with its unique combination of steep banking and tight corners, was ideal preparation for what awaits the team in Austria. "The team has returned from a very specific training camp in Queensland and is looking to get some more zip into their legs as they prepare to take on the senior riders in the Grand Prix," Mr Benson said. "This event offers the junior riders a snap shot of the world championships by having to race against older more experienced cyclist in a highly competitive environment."
