Backing for cycling series

Bendigo Weekly | Bendigo Weekly | 23-Feb-2017


CYCLING ace Brendan Schultz is the raging favourite to take out the Bendigo and District Cycling Club aggregate series next Thursday night.

Schultz is in career best form in the lead up to next month’s Bendigo International Madison track event, and the popular TASR rider has been training the house down in the lead up the biggest month on the local cycling calendar.

The Audi Bendigo-backed aggregate series has been keenly contested on Thursday nights across the summer, with the city’s Tom Flood Sports Centre a fitting backdrop to the racing that has unfolded.

Besides Schultz, other riders looking to do well in the final night of the series include Nick Simpson, Luke Knox, Isaac Buckell and Taylor Anstee, while young gun Connor Sens is another to have impressed on the track throughout the summer months.

The weekly action has also included the DCK Real Estate Women’s Crystal Classic, which has also been contested each race day since late October.

The Crystal Classic is the first senior race every week and has featured some of the most evenly contested races at the velodrome.

BDCC spokesman Syd Anstee thanked Audi Bendigo and DCK Real Estate for their support of cycling and the broader community in general.
