Southland Junior Fastest Kiwi Ever Over 1000m

Postby Melissa_Theuriau on Fri 16/Mar/07 9:54am

Eddie Dawkins streaked his way into the record books with the fastest ride ever by a New Zealander during the national track championships at the ILT Velodrome in Invercargill.

The Invercargill teenager produced the best ride ever seen at ILT Velodrome and one of the best rides in New Zealand cycling history, underlining the class he has been consistently showing on the track this season.

Dawkins rode the under-19 men's 1000m time trial – colloquially known as the kilo – in a blistering 1min 3.700sec.

It was the fastest time ever ridden by a New Zealander over that distance in any country at any event and in any age group, including senior.

That's phenomenal - would've put him 14th at the 2004 Olympics, and 5th at the Manchester WC this year.

With talent like this perhaps the sprint programme will justify a little more attention.
