    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 200m Flying start TT – Jack Fearon
    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

    Dave

    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.

    Hi Dave,

    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.

    Thanks for organising this and all the other track nights Dave and to Paul, Caroline and Andrew on the night. Shame there weren’t a few more riders for the Champs, I thought the format was good, just need to improve my race tactics!
