Junior Road Nationals Update

With Junior State Championships starting to be run and won and State Teams starting to be announced, you now Junior Road Nationals is just around the corner.  Well, it’s still some eight weeks away, but that will be here in the blink of an eye.

It’s probably the last chance for athletes to freshen up, while there aren’t a lot of junior tours left to tune up in: Toowoomba is one and Centrals is the other that might be considered.  Recent tours have probably further stamped the favourites with no real upsets at Eildon to speak of.

We know the road race and ITT courses from the recent Shepparton JT, but the criterium course was somewhat up in the air.  I hear on the grapevine that the crits will likely be held at the DECA Training Centre.  The Shepparton JT used to use this circuit as a fourth stage going back a good few years; and the Shepparton CC have held the odd event there.  While I haven’t seen the course in person, it seems to provide a good solution offering a safe course and good logistics.

Let's hope the weather is like this for Nationals in September!

Check out a onboard video of the circuit here and this is the strava segment.

Good luck to all those still to race their State Champs and hoping all riders remain fit and healthy in the lead up to Nationals.
