Tim O’Shannessey knows what it takes to compete at the highest level possible and has encouraged cyclists around the country to get on board for the 2017 Australian Masters Games.
The Burnie talent and 1996 Olympic bronze medalist will compete at the event held in the North-West from October 21-28 and is hoping for strong numbers in all competitions.
“I’m looking at doing the track and road time trial,” O’Shannessey said.
“On the track I’ll probably do the pursuit and scratch race and maybe the sprint, so three events there.”
Elesha Spillane hasn’t been able to compete in the sport she loves for almost 12 months now.
In exactly three months the 16th Australian Masters Games will get underway in Tasmania's North West and the entire region is gearing up for the week-long festival.
