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.

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