Another young champion followed in Steve Shiel. By 1991 Steve had won 47 gold medals and 3 silver medals in competitions as well as winning the NSW 500 metres time trial and gold at the Australian teams pursuit. Coach Fred Cobcroft built all the young champion’s bikes. Shiel continued the good form into 1992 when he won the Australian Juvenile Sprint Championship in Launceston. Shiel was given a season on the road circuit to “toughen him up”, a course taken by many of the outstanding Sports cyclists before him.
