The Illawarra Cycle Club is celebrating a successful NSW Under 9-13 Junior Track Championships with a pair of riders claiming gold medals.
Gabriel and Grace Jakobsen produced a number of blistering performances on the Victoria Park track in Dubbo, with Gabriel sweeping his rivals to take out the under 11 boys scratch race, sprint derby and time trial events.
He was awarded under 11 cyclist of the year for his achievements.
Grace was faced with a tougher challenge, as the only girl entered, she was forced to race against the boys. She performed admirably and was awarded girls state gold medals for each event she contested.
The club’s older members will have their own opportunity to race for a state gold medal in a week’s time at the NSW Under 15 and 17 Junior Track Championships.
The competition will be held at the Dunc Gray Velodrome in Sydney on February 22-24.
