Wheeling in the new champions

ROCKHAMPTON cyclists continue to be touted as potential future Australian representatives.

Lachlan Plane, Jeremy Hogg, Joshua Edwards and Philippa Hindmarsh ? all of Rockhampton ? have been included in a 15-member Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) regional cycling program which is being coached by the Gold Coast's Mark Brady.

QAS head cycling coach James Victor said the cyclists, aged from 15 to 17year-olds, were invited mainly based on national championship results.

Victor said this week's training in Rockhampton was educational rather than "flogging them''.

The group did testing in the Central Queensland University labs and track and road sessions.

The program is launched in Rockhampton today.
