Wolff's sprint to Australia

In-form German sprint world champion Rene Wolff will face his fastest sprint - from Manchester to London - to catch a flight to Australia for the Sydney Thousand track carnival. In order to acclimatise before the carnival Wolff needs to catch a flight just hours after the November 19 Revolution 10 meeting in Manchester finishes.

This looked close to impossible until Shane Sutton, British track cycling head coach and brother of NSW Institute of Sport's head cycling coach Gary Sutton, agreed to rush Wolff to London for his flight. Wolff has enjoyed strong preparation for the November 27 event at the Dunc Gray Velodrome in Sydney, with six-day events in Grenoble and Dortmund providing him with excellent training. With this latest news these good preparations shouldn't be hindered by a lack of acclimatisation or jet-lag.
