National J15 & J17 Road Championships.
Team Manager Mark Drehlich is excited about the team’s prospects – “Victoria is being represented by an exceptionally talented group of young athletes. Last year we took a lot of first year athletes to Wagga and returned with 8 medals. This year we have much more experience in the team and believe we can bring many more home.”
The championships commence on Friday with the time trial, with competition expected to be fierce between Victoria and the other states. The championships will conclude on the Sunday with the Criterium, whilst the road race will be on the Saturday.

2014 Victorian Junior road team selection…
Congratulations to Austin Timmins on being selected for the 2014 Victorian Junior Road Team in the JM15 category.
