2019 Oceania Track Cycling Championships:
The Adelaide Super-Drome will host the 2019 Oceania Track Cycling Championships this week (10-13 October 2018), with Bathurst Cycling Club and WRAS Sprinter Eliza Bennett representing at the Championship. Part of the NSW contingent Eliza is the only U/19 female selected in the 35 strong NSW Team, with Western Region Academy Coach Marian Renshaw explaining that “the Championships are a massive step up from the Junior Ranks for Eliza”.
“Eliza will be competing in four events over the Championships; her favourite event is the Sprint in which she will be looking for a PB in the qualifying round”.

The 2019 Oceania Track Championships will be held over 4 days with Australia’s fastest male sprinters looking to reverse New Zealand dominance in recent elite men’s sprinting titles. It is a different story in the female power championships with Aussie stars Stephanie Morton and Kaarle McCulloch in control of the recent sprint titles.
Meanwhile in the endurance events, there has been very little between Australia and New Zealand in recent years, with the Aussies hoping the Adelaide Super-Drome will give them an edge in 2018.

Marian Renshaw is confident Eliza will perform well and use this as great experience in the coming months before States and National Championships this season. Marian also pointing to the Bathurst clubs good record at the Oceania Track Championships with Harry Carter at last year’s titles at Cambridge’s (New Zealand) Avantidrome. While local champions Mark Renshaw , Dean Windsor and Toireasa Gallagher (Ryan) have all been on the Podium at the Oceania Championships

With Olympic qualifying underway the competition will be very intense in the elite division, while medals are always tough to come by in Eliza’s Under 19 titles. Eliza’s first event will be on Wednesday where she will pair up with another of the Australian Riders in the Women’s Team Sprint.

This year is the 9th running of the Tour of Taihu Lake which first won by Australian David Kemp in 2010. The Bathurst region had a connection with the tour in 2014 when local cyclists Blair Windsor’s team Budget Forklifts won the Tour with Sam Witmitz.

This year the race starts with a 5km Prologue at Wuxi followed by stages to Maoshan (130.6k) Jinhu (88.5k) and Jiangyan (98.6k) with the tour’s longest stage to Haimen (146.5k) on the 12th October followed by a 116km stage to Wujiang and the final stage to Changxing (137.5k) on the 14/10/2018

Tim Guy and his Ljubljana Gusto Xaurum Team are looking forward to the Japan Cup as they will be supporting their star rider of 2018 Tadej Pogacar who will be leaving the team in 2019 to ride for World Tour team UAE-Team Emirates with Dan Martin and Fabio Aru.

Pogacar has had a wonderful season and local cyclist Tim Guy has been very excited to watch the development of the young Slovenian in the Ljubljana Gusto Xaurum program in which he is a part sponsor.
Tadej Pogacar recent performances suggest he will be a contender in the Japan Cup even though the race includes a number of top world Tour teams such as BMC Racing Team, Mitchelton-Scott, Team EF Education First-Drapac p/b Cannondale, Team LottoNL-Jumbo and Trek – Segafredo.

Pogacar was 7th in the recent U23 World Championships at Innsbruck which came after Outright Wins in the 54th Giro della Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia and the prestigious Tour de l'Avenir  where he defeated Thymen Arensman  Netherlands and  Gino Mäder  Switzerland.
