We could not have asked for better riding conditions this past weekend with 9 junior riders turning up. We also welcomed new rider, Liam Scotchmer, who didn’t waste any time demonstrating his potential as a future pro rider. He screamed his way around the 1.2km track in a time of 2:48, sending a clear message to good friend Lucas Howlett (2:55) that he means business. Perhaps we witnessed the early beginnings of a long term friendly rivalry? Time will tell.
Other notable achievements from this weekend include personal best times for Ty Schalk-O’Brien (3:39), Lucas Howlett (2:55) and Oliver Robb (3:54). The full results from the individual time trial can be found below.
Once we got the time trial out of the way, the coaching team challenged riders with a new skill that required riders to grab a tennis ball from the hands of Peter Creagan and use their precision to drop the ball into a bucket. Although it was quite a challenging skill to master at the beginning, by the end of the session, all riders managed to develop the confidence to remove their hands from the handle bars and successfully complete the skill. A great activity to continue practising for one-handed riding – an essential skill.
