Only two International Cycling Union (UCI) races took place at the Tasmanian Christmas Carnival’s first of two days in Devonport. There was still plenty of racing to be seen – both in the cycling and athletics carnivals – but the biggest news from the day was the State Government renewing its support of the carnivals for a further four years, increasing its expenditure by 50 percent to $600,000.

Shane Perkins was convincing in the men’s keirin race. Perkins snuck away to claim victory over Malaysia’s Azizulhasni Awang, who has enjoyed a successful outing at this year’s carnivals.

Megan Dunn showed her class in the women’s point score race, winning the event from Belinda Goss. Amy Cure took third place in the event.

Dunn had to settle for second fiddle in the women’s A Grade Scratch race, as Isabella King claimed victory and Goss finished third. The men’s A Grade scratch race was a close contest with Scott Law marginally holding off Maddison Hammond for the victory.
