FORMER Fraser Coast cyclist Jordan Kerby has been named as a finalist for a major Cycling Australia award.
Kerby sprung into international headlines in April when he recorded the third-fastest 4km individual pursuit time in history on his way to a shock world title.
The former Xavier Catholic College student, who was previously an under-23 national title winner in both time trial and road racing, became the Australian champion in March.
He then powered past 21-year-old Italian Filippo Ganna to victory at the UCI Track World Championships in Hong Kong.
Kerby, a Hamilton Wheelers Cycling Club member, is a finalist alongside Cameron Meyer and Sam Welsford.
The awards night will be held on Friday, November 17, in Melbourne.
