It's difficult to put into words the emotions of my first Commonwealth Games. The opportunity to race on home soil was as special & unfortgettable as I'd dreamt about. @maddiejanssen & I did things in pairs... 2 PB's, 2 Comm Games records & 2 second place finishes. Thank you Australia for the love & support, the HUGE roar of the crowd was only matched by the HUGE smiles on our faces showing how proud & grateful we are to be able to share these moments with you all. Racing on the track was bloody unreal. 💚🇦🇺💛 @australiancyclingteam @cyclingaustralia @ausparalympics @commgamesaus @gc2018 #sharethedream #GC2018 #AussieCycling #TeamAus #GreaterTogether 📷 @tbsphotography
