Just a quick shout out of congratulations for our new Masters lady on the track Melanie Gibson.

With only 1 season of Raw under her belt, she had never entered any other races little own State or National titles before, but had no fear. She entered any race she could just to get the experience regardless of her perception of how she would go. I guess that is what woman's racing is all about, participation and having a go - as there are so few of us racing. Anyway - she dragged me in to race with her, after all my complaining - no training, not fit, and any other excuse I could dig up. A great effort from Mel - I think we will see her just grow from strength to strength and definitely a larger medal haul to come.

Mel had a go at pretty much everything - and although didn't medal in all these categories - I would say she put in some pretty stellar first time performance:

- Individual Pursuit
- NSW Team Sprint (all ages) - BRONZE

Aussie Titles
- Flying 200 & Sprint Serby
- Individual Time Trial
- Points race
- Individual Pursuit
- Team Pursuit (120+) - BRONZE
