Rocky cycling women honoured at state awards

THE Rockhampton cycling community could be forgiven for being a little bit too smug right now.

Not only have two of their current competitors brought home a title from the state awards on the weekend, but Rockhampton's golden girl Anna Meares has had a Velodrome in Brisbane named after here.

Brooke Tucker who is a rising star on the international competition scene was awarded the U19 Track Cyclist - Women award at Cycling Queensland's annual 42nd Cyclist of the Year awards ceremony on Saturday.

Quinn Cramer was took out the Elite Track Cyclist - Women award.

The awards ceremony followed the official opening of the Anna Meares Velodrome in Sleeman Sports Complex, Chandler.

The Velodrome opening is not the only honour Anna will receive in 2016. Rockhampton Regional Mayor Margaret Strelow has announced Anna Meares to receive Key to the Rockhampton City next month.

"The momentous occasion of the opening of the Anna Meares Velodrome offered a perfect backdrop to recognise our awards winners for 2016,” Cycling Queensland CEO Sean Muir said.

"It's a great way to finish off what has proven to be a standout year for road and track racing.

The 'International Cyclist of the Year' title was awarded to David Nicholas, of the Mackay Cycling Club.
