In December 2019, OmniGrip Direct sponsored the 2020 Madison Nationals cycling races at Melbourne Arena. The event was part of Cycling Victoria’s Melbourne Track Carnival.

OmniGrip Direct’s jerseys were worn by the number 1 teams in the Womens and Mens Madison races. The teams comprised Kristina Clonan and Maisy Stewart, and Samuel Welsford and Kelland O’Brien.

Events such as the Melbourne Track Carnival are vital to the preparation and selection of the Australian cycling team, with the next Olympics to be in Tokyo in July 2020.

Congratulations to all the riders in the many events, including the Austral Wheelrace and 2020 Madison National Championships.
