Welcome to another term of cycling! Six juniors arrived ready for another ride around the Traffic Education Centre.
After a few warmup laps, the riders participated in an ITT. No promises of fast times as a head wind was with the riders at the home run. Bella Page beat the head wind with a PB of 2:34 and the rest of the group between 2 – 15 seconds off their PB’s.
After a drink to keep the fluids up in the sun, the crew used the wind to their advantage and tackled the sprints with gusto. The group of Tommy Page, Eliot Scott-Hamilton & Bella Page started first, with the practice of riding in a straight line, and ended with Tommy finishing first with Eliot & Bella close behind. The last round saw the group of 3 as a tie over the line. The next group of Joe & Bernie had close finishes between them, with Bernie just ahead of Joe by not much. Thomas Singleton joined in the sprint so gave Bernie and Joe a run with a close finish with the three, also remembering to keep their lines too.
Under the guidance of Andrew Swann, John Scott-Hamilton & Michael Singleton the group had a roll around of the top half of the track in reverse as the majority of the time the riders are going uphill, not down hill for the track rides.
The final task for the afternoon was the 3 lap handicap, with each rider going at 30 sec intervals with Tommy Page starting the group, followed by Bella Page, Eliot Scott-Hamilton, Joe Nano, Thomas Singleton & Bernie May, which ended in the tail enders finishing the race Thomas (first), Joe (second) & Bernie (third). Well done to all!
Special thanks goes to Ben Page for time keeping and to Swanny, Johnny & Michael for rolling with the crew! See you next week at the start time of 1.30pm.
