Just a quick summary of the results from the Track Championships on Thursday. There was a very disappointing turnout of 14 riders, but the quality of riding was excellent and thanks to these people for making such a memorable event.
I’ll post a full result later but here are the highlights:

Winner of 2000m Pursuit – Nick Butterworth
Winner of minor placings scratch race – Matt Gilbertson
Winner of scratch race final – Jack Fearon
1st Lady overall – Katie Fearon
1st Youth overall – James Risk
1st Junior overall – Jack Fearon
1st Veteran overall – Nick Butterworth
1st Senior overall – Bruce McKie-Thomson ( also first international rider!)
3rd overall in championship – Dave Fearon
2nd overall in championship – Nick Butterworth
1st overall and club track champion – Jack Fearon
This was the last track night of the Winter season and many thanks to those who supported the events and I am sure that they all had a good time. We also had several first time track riders and each year the track nights introduce new blood into the club. Overall the track nights have run at a financial loss which is a shame as the people who do ride really enjoy the experience. Please, please support the track nights next Winter or we run the risk of losing these activities.
Finally I wouild like to thank the 2 Pauls for providing such excellent coaching and putting us through so much pain / pleasure!

Cheers to Dave for organising all the nights. It’s the first time I’ve ever been on the track and also taken part in any sort of competition really on a bike. The track has no doubt helped me improve as a rider and look forward to starting them again next autumn!
Great competition at the champs too, great to see everyone getting involved and cheering on.Claire.OMember14 March 2011 at 18:10Post count: 419
Well done to all the winners and competitors.
I’m sorry that Rob and I didn’t make it to the Track Champs on 10th March. We both had heavy colds, otherwise we would have definitely been there. It was Rob’s birthday, too, which was a shame….
Thank you Dave (and Caroline!) for organising the club nights – we have really enjoyed them.
