NICK Yallouris joined many of cycling’s greats as a Golden Mile Wheelrace champion at Sunday night’s Bendigo International Madison carnival.
His warm-up to a madison start was superb as he won the Andy’s Earthmovers-backed classic ahead of Ben Abels, Rohan Wight and last year’s winner, Bendigo star Glenn O’Shea.

A great summer for Yallouris included victory in the Australian Madison with Jackson Law.
“To win the Golden Mile is massive,” Yallouris declared.
He started off 10m in the 1600m contest.
“The backmarkers worked really well together,” he said of the pursuit.
It was Jackson Law’s turn at 1 1/2 laps to go that put Yallouris right in contention.
“It was a massive effort by Jackson.”
A Burnie Wheelrace winner on Tasmania’s lucrative circuit, Yallouris said the Golden Mile victory was a on par.
“This crowd and atmosphere is amazing.
“There is nowhere else like it,” he said of the thousands of fans packed into the Tom Flood Sports Centre.
