Two riders arrived to start the afternoon junior session on a warm, windy Saturday afternoon. After the duo did a warm up lap and had a drink, we started the afternoon with an ITT. We had no new PB’s this afternoon from Bernard May & Richard May, but the timings were 2:10 for Bernard & 2:34 for Richard.
We then decided to do some sprinting. Bernie decided to start back from the line and Richard was to start just ahead of the line to try and make things a little even. This tactic didn’t help Bernie at all but did for Richie with Richard winning 4 out of 5 sprints with the last 2 sprints being held to assist with the clipping in of the shoes and both starting on the line. Bernie was to keep 1 foot clipped in.
After a refreshing drink to keep the fluids up, the brothers lined up for the handicap race. Richard started off for the 3 lap race with Bernard starting 30 secs later. This race ended with Richard May in first & Bernard May in second by 2 bike lengths.See you next week at the start time of 2:30pm.
With school holidays appraoching this will be the last junior session for 2020 – enjoy a well earned break and we’ll see everyone when junior cycling returns next year!
