Manchester Regional Track League 15th November

Some people would say that racing on no training and with less than zero percent fitness is a silly thing to do. I would entirely agree with them but my reasoning on taking the plunge so soon is that I really enjoy the track league, it gives me a good focus over the winter and there is no better training than racing. Let’s face it there are few things better than being bent over in pain on a Friday night. As I haven’t ridden for so long I was put in group 1 (the slowest group) and on this first time out (and no doubt for several more to come) I was always going to get a sound thrashing, the question was just, ‘by how much’…
19 riders signed on in my group tonight.
In brief:
Race 1.  1km Scratch – 5th place
Race 2.  16 lap Scratch – 7th place
Race 3.  Devil – 4th place
Race 4.  Unknown distance – 6th place
Race 5.  20 laps points – my legs had gone by this point and I came nowhere.
Not as bad as it could have been!
First week out of the way, lungs currently being coughed up!!

Club runs are back in the calendar for our members and new riders who are looking to join.
