For the very first time, we broke with tradition of holding the final Club Championship races during an afternoon and instead opted for a Saturday early evening slot inside the infamous Calshot Velodrome. Of course, not breaking with tradition this time of year, the Track Club Champs races took place on a rather wet, windy and bitterly cold day, which true to form ensured we had the full experience freezer temperature experience inside as well!
Thank goodness, though, for an afternoon filled with speed, thrills and excitement which helped detract from the shivers and ensure we all had a great time.
Following the briefing by Coach Dave, Flying Laps kicked off the 2016 Track Champs with some seriously fast times and personal bests to set the scene, leading nicely into the Sprints races.
Whilst the U16 and U14 riders took a well-deserved break, Scratch races for the younger age groups commenced the next set of events to the sounds of cheering and clapping echoing throughout the velodrome.
Lining up for the final set of events, the 40 lap Points races became 50 laps and rounded the evening off nicely with all riders showing superb strength and endurance.
A Nod to All Helpers…
Even running track races requires planning, administration and a committed team to run the events throughout. A big thank you to the Track Coaches, Young Volunteers and of course Parents who lent a hand throughout to ensure things ran smoothly and to schedule – in fact, we even had some time to spare! Great stuff!
