The Cycling Australia 2012 Australian National Hand-cycling Series got underway in Sydney at the weekend with three days of racing in Sydney's Sutherland Shire.
Hosted by the Sutherland and Bankstown Cycling Clubs, in conjunction with the Australian time Trial Association and Wheelchair Sports NSW, great weather may not have greeted the riders for Friday's opening day, however the rain did nothing to dampen the spirits of all involved.

In Sunday's time trial, Taylor and Tripp made it three from three with resounding victories in their respective categories, with Reid claiming her second win of the weekend.
In the overal series standings, Glenn Bennett (H1), Michael Taylor (H2), Sue Reid (H3) and Stuart Tripp (H4) head the leader board in their divisions.
The next installment of the series will see riders head to regional Victoria, with Echuca hosting round 3 from February 25-26.
