Sam King, Alex King and Karlee McMillan attended the Track Training Camp held on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th October held at the Toormina Velodrome under the guidance of Sean Eadie the current NSW Track Cycling Coach and our club coach Mark Bullen.
We were put through several training exercises and training drills, some proved to be more difficult than others. Saturday night saw Coffs Harbour Cycle Club run a mini carnival incorporating some of the skills we had learnt throughout the afternoon, races included a keirin, handicap, scratch, elimination and motor paced races, with some pleasing times and performances. On Sunday morning Sean and Mark discussed training programmes and gym session and ways in which we could improve our overall strength and racing ability.
I would like to congratulate Sam and Alex King on their awesome effort throughout the camp. It was their first time on a track bike, although a little scared at first they gained confidence and learnt new skills that will be utilise in future riding and racing.
A good weekend was had by all with no injuries.
