Shane Perkins won his Fourth keirin national title with a powerful victory on a thrilling final day of racing.

Perkins burst back in to the lead on the final lap and held off late challenges from defending champion Jacob Schmid (VIC) who finished just behind in second. South Australia’s Thomas Clarke picked up bronze.

“That’s definitely one of the most satisfying wins I’ve had in my career,” said the 29-year-old Perkins.
