Warming up nicely for Australian Olympic qualifier this weekend

This weekend sees the latest qualifier for the Australian Olympic qualifier squad. I'll be watching out to see if 19-year old "shooting star" Maxine Seear wins.

If she does, and that will take some doing as she will have to beat dual world champion and Olympic medallist Michellie Jones, 2000 world champion Nicole Hackett and newly crowned ITU 2003 World Champion Emma Snowsill.

Then what will the Australian selectors do ? As Seear isn't part of the official Australian squad the selectors can name a 3rd discretionary team member. We will see, all eyes on the Internet for results from Perth early Saturday morning here in UK prior to the 7.30am training ride.(turns out the race isn't until Sunday, so I'll be looking the results up from Heathrow airport...)
