SASI Cycling has been dominating the headlines in recent weeks.
SASI cyclists have been dominating the headlines in recent weeks with Jack Bobridge and Rohan Dennis battling it out at the Tour Down Under and SASI track riders winning over 10 National Titles in Melbourne. It is great to see that this has been rewarded with 9 riders (of a total team size of 20) being selected onto the Senior World Championships Track Team who will travel to Paris to compete from Feb 18th – 22nd.
Alex Edmondson will be looking to try and defend his Team Pursuit and Individual Pursuit titles he won in Columbia last year, whilst Anna Meares will be looking to try and add to her impressive 10 World Titles that she has won so far in her career. Jack Bobridge has also been selected which is great to see following the disappointment of not quite beating the hour record which he attempted on 31st Jan.
The Australian team is very strong in all areas and they will be looking to bring home a similar medal haul to last year which saw them tied at the top of the medal tally with Germany (8 medals each). Good luck to the whole team!
