With 1 week until the start of the 2012 UCI Track Cycling World Championships it’s a time of highly intense work and virtually the icing on the cake in the final preparations and mentally one of the toughest times of an athlete’s prep on occasion. My own preparations have been on track for our targets come the titles and it’s a very exciting time as it’s not only in my home town but coming in as a reigning world champion is a complete honour. The test is going to be regaining the title.
I have had my challenges this season although it is all coming together in the end. I have a complete program this year during the titles with me now lining up for man 1 in the Team Sprint so my training has been slightly different this season with the addition of this. I will also be racing the Sprint and of course the Keirin. It being an Olympic year spots are on the line and I’ll be doing all I can to book my ticket to the London Olympic games. Thanks you all for your support and I hope to make you and Australia proud come next week!
