Shepparton riders made a confident start to the Victorian Junior Track Championships on Saturday.
Shepparton Cycling Club pair Ryan Kilpatrick and Demi McDonald hit the track at Darebin International Sports Centre Velodrome in Melbourne for two days of highly competitive racing.
McDonald contested the junior women’s under-15 time trial and individual pursuit races, while Kilpatrick battled a big field in the junior men’s under-17 time trial.
In the time trial, McDonald finished fifth in a time of 43.72
In the pursuit, McDonald was sixth in qualifying, with the top four going on to contest the medal races.
Kilpatrick was seventh in his time trial, clocking a time of 36.25
Racing continued yesterday, with both riders entered in the sprint and keirin events.
Shepparton Cycling Club president Edward Dalle Nogare said it was good to see both riders continue to ride well at a high level as racing gets increasingly competitive.
‘‘Both have been down at the track for a number of years and they have been working really hard,’’ Dalle Nogare said.
‘‘Demi is racing in 15s now and Ryan is in 17s, so they’re starting to get towards those higher age groups, where it gets more serious.
‘‘It’s about putting time into training and it’s good to see them getting reward for their efforts.’’
The pair is keen to follow in the footsteps of fellow Shepparton cyclist Jay Castles, who spent the weekend racing at the concurrently run Cycling Australia Track National Championships in Adelaide.
