Australia was host to the 2019-2020 Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup over the weekend held at Brisbane’s Anna Meares Velodrome.
It was a rare opportunity for Australian track cyclists to compete in front of a home crowd.
Beginning the schedule were the Para-Cyclists and NSWIS cyclists Amanda Reid and Gordon Allan shone with both breaking world records in their pet events.
