Pre Race Comments

Megan Dunn (AUS) is the you youngest member of the Australian team and is very excited to beat her first senior World Championships. A multi time champion in the junior ranks, Dunn showed real class winning the Points race in the Beijing leg of the World Cups. "I am thrilled to be here. There was a little bit of doubt as to whether I would make selection for the World Championships. Getting a start is fantastic," said Dunn.

Dunn reflected on her chances of getting a medal, "Wining the World Cup, gives me the hope that I can do something here. I know what to expect and I will be really happy with a top 6 result here. That would be fantastic, I would walk away with a big smile on my face. There is no pressure, I have only experienced one international race at this level. Not everyone was there, Lizzy Armistead (GBR) was missing, she will be a vital player in the Point scores. I am excited to be learning but I am going out hard to try for the Rainbows," added Dunn. 

Like many Australian riders, making the transition to the Northern Hemisphere from the warm summer weather is hard, Dunn is no exception, "I found it hard adjusting to the time difference and I kept sleeping at all the wrong times. I have adjusted now, which is great, just in time. The cold, I hate the cold. We all thought we had enough clothing to cope with the cold weather. We went out into the city on a sight seeing tour and realised we definitely did not have enough," smiled Dunn.

Dunn finished 10th, she too second in two of the sprints and fourth on one.
