Echuca’s Charlotte Thompson was the best district rider, finishing second in the Victorian championship.
Echuca’s Charlotte Thompson put in a strong performance to claim second in the under 15 women’s event at the Echuca-Moama Cycling Club Junior Track Carnival.
Riding off scratch, Thompson set the Moama Velodrome alight on Saturday night, putting in a spirited performance in the endurance event.
Echuca-Moama Cycling Club secretary Andrew Clapham said it was a strong performance from Thompson.
‘‘It is not her ideal event, this was an endurance race and she is a sprinter. However, she lifted in from of the home crowd and put in a great effort,’’ he said.
‘‘The event is part of the state team selection process .
Clapham said the event had grown in numbers this year, after a couple of lean years with inclement weather.
‘‘We had about 120 cyclists in total, which is up. The novice numbers were up 100 per cent and the open categories were up about 20 to 25 per cent,’’ he said.
‘‘We had a little hassle with rain today (Sunday), but most of the major events were run in perfect conditions on Saturday night.
‘‘The conditions were mild and the wind was low which made for some fast times on the track.’’
Clapham said the open winners were James Tickner and Brooke Ramshaw in the under 17 divisions and Georgia Cummings and Riley Hart in the under 15 divisions.
Clapham said strong numbers in the novice divisions were much improved this year.
‘‘Our coach, Jamie Costello-Manning, joined with coaches from Brunswick to put on a successful novice program,’’ he said .
‘‘All of our juniors put on a good performance.’’
