The Coming Week on WomensCycling.net

November 28th to December 5th

A week of varied competition on the road and track

WomensCycling.net will be covering several events in the next 10 days. The summer weather has arrived in the Southern hemisphere and the racing is starting.

On Sunday Nov 28th, the venue is Albert Park for the Women's Criterium. This event, now with even more sponsorship and a larger presence is the first in what the organiser hopes will become an annual event. Click here for the full story

On Tuesday, its upstate Victoria (Australia) for the Commonwealth Youth Games. It is only the second time that the Youth Games have taken place and Bendigo follows Edinburgh in Scotland as Host City. A full week of track and road competition for cyclists is listed. There will be a road race, time trial and also track events which run through the week. There is also a mountainbike cross-country competition on the programme. With teams arriving from around the world in the past week, this is going to be a hotly contested week of races.

Next weekend (Dec 3rd to Dec 5th) sees Melbourne host to the Oceania Track Championships. The venue is Vodafone Arena (where the World Track Champs were held in May). The racing should be fast and furious and the crowds will have the opportunity to see some of the cyclists who were at the Athens Olympics in August. Local rider, Kate Mactier, who took silver in Athens and at the Worlds in the Individual Pursuit is included in the Australian team.

 Included in the International programme is the annual "Melbourne Cup on Wheels" event. The women's events which are part of the MCoW are always hotly contested by local riders - this year should be no exception.

So, an exciting week ahead - be sure to visit each day for news and photos.
