Manchester Regional Track League 22nd November

Since last Friday I have really piled in the training (not), a club run, a gym session, some efforts on the turbo and some core work. Sensibly (unusual for me) I am getting back in to it slowly so as not to do myself in. In any case some work has been done and so I was expecting an improvement at the track tonight. My Friday work schedule meant I was able to get to the velodrome at a decent time and with rollers. This meant I could have a decent warm up. Every little helps.

There were 12 or 13 riders signed on, one of whom easily won every one of our races & I think is destined for group 3 very soon.

Tonight’s results:

Race 1.   Unknown distance – 4th place

Race 2.   Devil – 6th place – disappointed as I had plenty in the legs but got myself in a bad position.

Race 3.   16 lap scratch race – 4th place – let myself get boxed in.

Race 4.  1km scratch race – 5th place – 1st was up the road & it was a 4 way sprint for 2nd.

Race 5.  20 lap points – 5th place – I got points in the first couple of sprints and after the 3rd sprint a few people went away. I thought they would come back. They didn’t.

So, definitely improved on last week. Silly errors made though. Onwards and upwards.

As a club, we’d like to wish Andrew Simpson @simmo_on_sport all the best for the future, with a heartfelt thanks for supporting WVCC all these years....
