Megan's training rewarded with four-medal hall at Masters

TOOWOOMBA cyclist and Bikeline Racing member Megan Stevens was rewarded for her hard slog on the training track with an impressive performance at this month's Masters Track Cycling National Championships.

The titles were held at the Dunc Grey Velodrome in Sydney.

Stevens returned home with a four-medal haul.

She won bronze in both the 500m TT and sprint.

Stevens also took the silver medal in the scratch race.

She capped her championships with a silver medal win in the team's pursuit where she combined with teammates Melinda Symons, Yvette Waterfall and Jeanette Davis.

Stevens said many months of training at the Toowoomba velodrome and in the gym helped reap her welcome rewards.

"The nationals were intense and the standard of competition was very high," Stevens said.

"But I backed myself, gave it 100% and came away with some great results. I'm over the moon."

Stevens is now setting her sights on next year's National Championships in Perth.

"I'll take a small break from the track now and then it's back to the grind for next year's national champs, where my goal will be to upgrade some of those medals."
