Duryea dominates carnival

BENDIGO-BASED physio Beth Duryea was in hot form at Saturday night's cycling carnival on her home track.

Duryea's winning run included the eight-lap motor pace in the women's omnium, the $1500 women's wheelrace (2000m) and both A-grade scratch races.

In the wheelrace final, Duryea started off the backmark alongside Bendigo clubmate Imogen Jelbart.

An attack by Duryea about halfway along the back straight turned out to be a decisive one as she raced to the line ahead of Jelbart, Nina Greig-Towers (145) and Lara Batkin (70).

The main event on the women's card was sponsored by Precision Formworking and Pro-Found Civil.

"The backmarkers worked well together," Duryea said of their pursuit for glory.

"To have $1500 sponsorship for a women's wheelrace is fantastic."

Duryea will race for Total Rush in the Bay criterium series and then prepare for next month's national road titles at Buninyong.

Then it's back to Europe to work as physio for the Specialized Lululemon cycling team.
