Cycling siblings Colby and Brailey
Jachmann will be hoping the many bike
rides up Bookpurnong Hill and Sophie
Edington Drive will pay off this weekend,
when they compete in the second round
of the National Junior Track Series in
Brailey, 12, has been cycling for about six
months, while older brother Colby, 15, has been
competing for almost a year and will be hoping to
continue his run of success in Melbourne.
Colby became the youngest ever winner of the
Riverland Cycling Club Championship earlier this
month, winning the 50km road race and backed it
up with a victory in Sunday's individual time trial.
"I was hoping to do alright. . . I didn't really know
how it was going to go," he said.
"The outcome in the end was a surprise. But, it
wasn't something I thought was impossible."
Brailey and Colby will be competing against the
best young cyclists in the nation on Saturday and
Sunday and said they were looking forward to the
The duo are currently training twice a week at
the Super-Drome in Adelaide, along with weekend
road races in the Riverland.
Colby said there was a "big difference" between
track and road racing and while he enjoyed both, it
is clear he enjoys endurance events.
"I probably prefer road races, because I am not a
sprinter," he said.
Meanwhile, Brailey is in her element on the
track, after falling in love with the sport after this
year's Australian International Pedal Prix.
"Mum was with Colby in Adelaide and was talk-
ing to the coaches and she mentioned that I was in
the school pedal prix team," she said.
"They suggested to bring me down to see if I
would enjoy it on the track.
"So I went. . . then I just really enjoyed it and had
a really good time."
Brailey said she enjoyed cycling for "numerous
"It is good because it is really social. You can
finish your race and sit down and have a chat," she
"People that I ride with (in Adelaide) all started
roughly the same time as me, so we are all about the
same speed, which is good."
Colby moved to cycling, after competing in a
number of triathlons previously.
"I would like to make a pro team in Europe and
travel the world circuit. That would probably be the
top of the list," he added.
