The near perfect winter weather last the weekend assisted a number of junior riders improve on their times for the individual time trial event. Poppy Stace (3:24), Lucas Howlett (2:39), Richard May (3:34) and Liam Scotchmer (2:23) all managed to shave several seconds off their previous best times – perhaps that elusive 2 minute lap goal is under threat this year. Time will tell. Kal Blair continued his incredibly consistent form with another 2.5 minute lap. Since starting with the club earlier this year, 7 of Kal’s 8 timed laps have been within a second either side of 2.5 minutes – remarkable!
The juniors moved into some pace-lining around the track for the remainder of the session, preparing themselves for the upcoming Interclub Junior Road Cycling Series next month. It was during this part of the session that Lucas showed his potential as a future Tour de France contender, hopping back on the bike immediately after a spill at the top of the hill. Well done Lucas.
Speaking of the upcoming Interclub Junior Road Cycling Series and junior cycling in general, juniors will need to purchase a race level membership. Race memberships start from $55.00.
