2013 U19 & Elite Track National Championships

Sean Grimes was one of the only competitors to ride in both sprint and endurance disciplines at Nationals.  He is currently ranked 6th in Australia for the 1km time trial, the winner of this event breaking the world record, 5 seconds ahead of Sean as a first year competitor indicating a promising future for him in this event.  Sean rode competitively in the point races but unfortunately crashed when a rider fell in front of and was unable to complete the event.  Despite his injuries (mostly board burns and splinters) he went on to finish the scratch race strongly and then anchored the Queensland U19 men's sprint team into 4th place.
