Hamil­ton Hill cy­clist Tay­lah Christie says she is primed for the Track Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Ade­laide start­ing to­mor­row.

WEST Aus­tralian In­sti­tute of Sport (WAIS) cy­cling tal­ent Tahlay Christie has been hit­ting the track at the Mid­vale velo­drome twice a week for seven years.

This will come in handy when the Hamil­ton Hill teenager com­petes in the Track Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Ade­laide start­ing to­mor­row.

Christie (17) is part of a squad which reg­u­larly laps the velo­drome at Mid­vale.

She works out at the WAIS gym in Mt Clare­mont un­der coach Clay­ton Wor­thing­ton.

Ahead of Ade­laide, Christie said her fit­ness was good and her con­fi­dence high.

Af­ter com­plet­ing Year 12 last year she said she was ex­cited to fo­cus on cy­cling.

“I feel more com­mit­ted now that I can pre­pare with­out the pres­sure of study,” she said.
