Australian sprint team

I heard Shane Kelly & Ben Kersten are racing for the last spot on the Australian Olympic sprint squad. Does anyone know who the other members are?

Not off the top of my head but it should be noted that Shane and Ben were supposed to race off about a week ago. However, Shane dislocated his shoulder in a crash a couple of days before Ben was injured in the huge hit and run accident in Sydney. I may be wrong but I think they are both going into this carrying healing injuries.

I hadn't heard about Shane Kelly dislocating his shoulder.

Actually I'm surprised Ben Kersten is in the ride-off given that his performances at the World Championships were'nt overly impressive. Ben Kersten's ride as last rider in the teams sprint was the second slowest last lap in the entire field. He missed the national titles due to picking up some illness so perhaps that has been taken into account.

Ryan Bayley, Mark French, Shane Perkins, Shane Kelly, Ben Kersten and Daniel Ellis have all put up performances worthy of the team. I'd hate to be a selector.
