Victorian J11/J13 Track Championships and Junior Teams Championships

January 16th-17th, 2016

A strong team of Blackburn Juniors enjoyed great success at the Victorian J11/J13 Track Championships and Junior Teams Championships last weekend. The J11/J13 individual events included flying 200m, 500TT and Scratch Race. Oscar Gallagher put in characteristically fierce performances in the very competitive J11 boys category and took out the Bronze medal in the 500TT. Ash Newnham took out Silver in the Boys J13 500TT and Gold in the Scratch Race. Sam Mitchell showed his talent as a bottom age J13 rider, giving many of the top age boys cause for concern.
In the Junior Teams Championship it was impressive to see the strong talent graduating from our Novice Track Program, with a number of riders racing for the first time at the event. Our coaches Daryl Perkins, Emerson Harwood and Russell Nelson put on special training sessions for the riders to prepare for them and their efforts really showed on race day. Riders competed in both Team Sprint and Team Pursuit events, with many riders riding up an age category. Medal winning performances on the day included:

Sprint

Bronze - J11 Boys Team Sprint - Hamish Clarkson and Oscar Gallagher
Bronze - J13 Girls Team Sprint - Jo Mangan and Lauren Fitzgerald
Bronze - J13 Boys Team Sprint – Sam Mitchell and Zane Mumford
Bronze - J17 Women Team Sprint – Mackenzie Betts and Jemma Eastwood

Pursuit

Bronze - J11 Boys Team Pursuit - Hamish Clarkson and Oscar Gallagher
Gold - J13 Girls Team Pursuit – Indigo Keating, Jo Mangan and Lauren Fitzgerald
Bronze - J13 Girls Team Pursuit – Annabel Johnstone, Sari Keating and Lily Johnstone
Bronze - J13 Boys Team Pursuit – Zane Mumford, Sam Mitchell and Ash Newnham
Bronze - J17 Women Team Pursuit – Mackenzie Betts and Jemma Eastwood

Well done also to Nathan Bowden (J15), Harry Morgan, Callum Hopkins and Sam Gallagher who rode in the very competitive J17 age group after returning the previous week from NJTS racing in Adelaide. Many thanks to all the coaches, riders and parents who supported this event. A special thanks to Brian Harwood for bringing along the behemoth Blackburn Marque that provided some relief for all on the day.
