2012 Townsville Cup on Wheels

CATS juniors are off to a great start to the track season with great results being achieved at the Townsville Cup on Wheels from four of our young riders

CATS juniors achieved some great results at the Townsville Cup with Lachlan Fearon winning the wheel race, unknown distance and the points race in the U15 category.  Shannon McQuaid came 2nd in the unknown distance and the Women's wheel race while her sister Roisin won the handicap race at her first track carnival.  Coach, Aidan Grimes said they all rode brilliantly and he was so proud to watch them apply the skills and race strategies he has been teaching them for the past few years.  

Congratulations must also go to first year U19 rider, Sean Grimes who rode well to claim 2nd in the Elite Men's keirin and scratch races then finished a strong 3rd in the prestigious memorial wheel race.
