Moss breaks more world records on her way to gold

SNR SPORTSPERSON: Grafton cyclist Laurelea Moss has taken to the velodrome like a duck to water.

Last week, Moss returned from the 2016 Masters Track National Championships with four individual medals including gold in the 2000m individual pursuit, the sprint and the scratch race and silver in the 500m time trial.

But it was her times in the races that were more impressive after the cyclist broke her own world record in the 2000m pursuit and the flying 200.

Only last month Moss broke the then World Record for the individual pursuit, but was still waiting on ratification when she shaved another two seconds off her time in Melbourne.

What is most astounding is that this is only Moss' first year on the boards.

"This is my first year and I do find the velodrome intimidating but I am really enjoying it," Moss said.

"I still love the road as well though. I like the stuff that I win at - I am winning on the velodrome and I am winnign on the road at the moment too so it is all good."

Moss' efforts on the track have seen her awarded the GDSC Clarence Valley Senior Sportsperson of the Month for March.
