Olman to miss Cup on Wheels



LEADING Rockhampton cyclist Miles Olman is expected to miss next month's CQU Rockhampton Cup on Wheels program.

The 19-year-old's first race with the South Australia.com AIS team is the Tour of Wellington in New Zealand on January 24.

The CQU Rockhampton Cup on Wheels is on January 20 and 21.

However, in Olman's absence the madison will make a return to the Rockhampton event.

The Tuckers Avanti Plus/Peak Fuel Madison has been added to the bumper two days of track cycling at Rockhampton's Kenrick Tucker Velodrome.

The madison, which involves two team members competing to ride the greatest number of laps in an allotted time, will headline the carnival, along with the CQU Rockhampton Cup on Wheels and Herron Todd White Capricornia Cup on Wheels.

More than 160 riders from throughout Australia are expected to converge on the Beef Capital chasing $20,000 in prizemoney.

The Rockhampton Cycling Club is offering a Sports Lovers Deal for people keen to get trackside for the event.

It includes 10 entry passes to the CQU Rockhampton Cup on Wheels for just $40.

Sports Lover Deals can be purchased from Tuckers Avanti Plus, City Centre Cycles and Different Cycles right up to the CQU Rockhampton Cup on Wheels rolling off.
