Many rising stars have graced the Junior State Titles and Open Track Carnival at Dubbo in the past and many have gone on to reach great heights.
The latest in that long list of talents may have been uncovered on the weekend.
Bathurst young gun Ebony Robinson was “virtually untouchable” at the Victoria Park track, dominating every event she contested.
The carnival, for rider ranging from the under-9s through to the under-13s, attracted huge numbers again but it was under-13s rider Robinson who stood out.
The young gun collected the prized Jackson Pascoe Memorial Trophy, the award for the weekend’s most outstanding rider.
The prize is named in honour of the state gold medallist who died tragically in a road accident, aged eight, in 2005.
“She’s an outstanding rider,” Dubbo Cycle Club president Matthew Gilbert said after Robinson swept the pool.
“She’s untouchable compared to the other riders. She’s under-13s and she’s so fast.
“There’s been some awesome winners (of the Pascoe award) and she’s cleaned up and is really exciting.
“Bathurst should be well proud of her.”
Robinson previously won the junior girls 13 derby during the Clarence Street Cyclery Cup late last year, while she also picked up gold in the NSW elimination championship there.
Dubbo juniors also performed well with Cooper Farr, referred to by many as “Super Cooper”, winning a gold while Ella Mann scored a silver and two bronze medals in a strong showing.
