Anna Meares Named Brisbane Cycling Festival Ambassador

Olympic and Commonwealth Games gold medallist Anna Meares has been announced as the official ambassador for the inaugural Brisbane Cycling Festival in 2019.

The Brisbane Cycling Festival will feature the Tour de Brisbane, Six Day Final and Cycling Australia’s Track National Championships.

Meares said the festival was an opportunity to celebrate Cycling in Brisbane and Queensland, with a great collection of events attracting the world’s best track and road cyclists to town.

It was an honour to have a velodrome named after me in Brisbane and now to see more racing of such high caliber with world-class track cyclists from the Six Day Cycling Brisbane Final, to the sport’s next generation stars through Track Nationals racing on boards that bear my name is an absolute pleasure,” Ms Mears said.

“Brisbane Cycling Festival is a great opportunity to get to Brisbane for three weeks of cycling activities- families can participate in the Tour de Brisbane, soak up the Track Cycling of the Six Day Brisbane Final and get behind Australia’s best track cyclists.”

Cycling Queensland CEO Sean Muir said Anna Meares was the perfect ambassador for the Brisbane Cycling Festival.

Anna Meares was the first Australian athlete to win a medal at four different Olympic Games during her career. It is great to have on board as a Brisbane Cycling Festival Ambassador,” he said.

The inaugural Brisbane Cycling Festival runs from March 28 to April 14.
