Nine regular junior riders welcomed newcomer, Elliot Scott-Hamilton, to the track for the first cycling session of term 2 on the weekend in near perfect riding conditions – where the afternoon temperature hovered around 19 degrees and the slight breeze provided a sweet tailwind for riders making their way down the final straight of the 1.2km circuit.
As Elliot familiarised himself with his new bike and the track, seven of the riders lined up to test the quality of their training during the school break. Lincoln and Dempsey managed to shave impressive seconds off their respective times whilst the remainder of the riders showed consistent form, despite backing up from a range of morning sporting activities, posting respectable times in line with their previous best efforts. (Nice work guys!)
With numbers a little light on compared to previous sessions, the whole group stayed together for a fun relay session where the skills of sprinting, tight turns and emergency braking were put to the test before transitioning into a skills session focusing on improving these key skills. Once again, it was great to see improvements from all juniors across all the skills within a very short space of time.
The session wrapped up with a handicapped 2 lap race where Lincoln continued his good form, taking first place.
Once again, well done to all and many thanks to the club members and parents who came along to lend a hand on the day – it certainly makes the running of these sessions so more enjoyable for all.
