Cycling was on the Olympic calendar and, as such, enjoyed a relatively high profile. The deeds of the cyclists attracted considerable world attention and Bankstown Sports’ remarkable cycling record continued into the ’80s. In 1980 Bankstown Sports Cycle Club’s junior cyclists – Owen Cricket, Dave Whetters, Mark McGurgan and Robert Balmer won the NSW 3000 metres Track Teams Pursuit event at Hurstville Oval in a State record time. This was one of many records set in competition by Sports cyclists. Robert Balmer also won the State 30 km Point Score title, joining Chris Wilson and Vicki Carne as individual winners while David Garrety won the Australian 5 km title.
