The Eather brothers are continuing their climb to the top of the cycling ladder with great success at the recent state championships and the Sydney Cup.
All roads will lead to the Tour of Taiwan for Kurt, while Dylan will contest the national championships in Brisbane and they will both compete in the Oceania Games.
Held at the Dune Grey Velodrome in Sydney, the state championships proved a happy hunting ground for the brothers with the team of Danny Barber, John Trovas and Kurt Eather winning the team sprint race.
Dylan Eather took gold in the time trial ahead of Kurt Eather and Dev Grewall with a time of 1.04.156.
Kurt Eather fell foul of a blown rear tyre in the points race relegating him to ninth position, while his brother Dylan went on to grab second place behind Cam Rogers, who also claimed victory in the individual pursuit ahead of Dev Grewall, with Kurt Eather flying into third place ahead of brother Kurt in fourth spot.
Last weekend the pair travelled to Sydney’s Dune Grey Velodrome for the Trek Sydney Cup where they had great success.
The brothers scored a quinella in the open men’s starter race with Kurt flashing into first spot ahead of Dylan, and Bankstown’s Isaac Silva in third place.
Kurt backed up his win in the open men’s elimination, with Dylan in second place ahead of Newcastle’s Jonathon Millington.
Dylan Eather turned the tables on his brother in the open men’s keirin, beating Newcastle’s Jonathan Millington with Kurt finishing third.
The big event was the open men’s trek cup wheel race, where Dylan turned the tables beating Kurt to the line with Cadel Lovett of Bathurst in third place.
Dylan Eather was ‘over the moon’ with the winner’s prize, a much-coveted E-bike which he quickly put through its paces around the infield.
The pair will travel to Wagga Wagga this weekend to contest the cycling club’s carnival, with training then in full swing for 21-year-old Kurt in the Tour of Taiwan, with the CCACHE x Par Küp road cycling team, while 19-year-old Dylan will compete at the national titles followed by the Oceania championships with his brother.To order photos from this page click here
