This is great stuff.

There is some great talent in the next generation of New Zealand athletes.

New Zealanders Regan Gough and Luke Mudgeway are now Junior World Madison Champions! Gough already has a World Championship in the Points Race, our first Junior World Track Champion since Sam Webster in '09, I believe... :thumbsup:

Brilliant! That's impressive.

Can't speak for some of the riders, but there's a definite relation between results and areas with solid junior programmes. Good to see

That's right, Cruiser.

I believe it's also evident that Countries that do sharing of development (eg NZ / Australia / Korea / Malaysia) help bring out the potential across the board. Inter-Tasman racing has really been beneficial to both colonies (especially in competing against the race opportunities present in Europe), and in helping Korea and Malaysia produce some top class athletes. It's good to see the Southern Hemisphere punching above its weight.
