Try the Track at Dunc Gray – 7 Feb 9.30 am

Have you ever considered tackling a velodrome? Intrigued by the idea of riding around a 42 degree banked tracked? Do you want to improve your sprint or perfect that smooth cadence?

The 2018 Waratah Masters Club Track Championship will be held on 10th March at Dunc Gray Velodrome in Bankstown.

We would like more club members to participate and in order to encourage those of you who might be interested but have not yet experienced the exhilaration of a velodrome we have organised two “Try the Track” days at Dunc Gray. The first was on 4th January at 2pm and was well attended as can be seen from this happy and slightly exhausted post ride bunch: http://www.waratahmasters.com.au/2018/01/try-the-track/

The next session will be on 7th February at 9:30am.

More details at http://www.nsw.cycling.org.au/Track/Try-The-Track

These sessions are usually limited to a small group and we would like to know numbers for the next session by Monday 5th February in order to organise correctly sized bikes so if you’re keen please contact Stephen Joyce stephen.george.joyce@gmail.com or Terry Freshwater freshwatert@ymail.com.

In order to encourage participation, the club will pay $50 per rider towards the cost of bike hire, coaching and track hire.

Why not give it a go, you may love it!

Vale Barry Robins 1934 – 2018

With great sadness we report the passing on Wednesday of Waratah member Barry Robins after a long battle with illness and most recently a series of strokes.

Up until a few months ago Barry was racing in F grade and, as always, putting in 110%; that was the only way Barry knew how to ride. Following a long and prominent cycling career at the St George Club, Barry was instrumental in continuing the long tradition of Veteran’s racing at Homebush Bay. He played a key role in the formation of the Waratah club and even proposed the name Waratah which was readily adopted.  Barry competed in A grade well into his sixties which gives you some idea of the quality of his bike riding. In addition to his riding prowess Barry put a lot back into the sport and, for many years, organised the famous 100 lapper at the Hurstville track on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s as well as officiating at many events including the early Waratah races at Homebush Bay.

Our sympathy goes to all of Barry’s family at such a sad time. His spirit will live on at the Waratah Club which he loved so much.

Barry’s funeral will be held in the North Chapel of Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Camden Valley Way, Leppington, on Thursday 25th January at 2.pm

CHAMPION SYSTEMS TO BE AT LANSDOWNE ON SUNDAY

Champion Systems, the club’s clothing supplier, will be at Lansdowne this Sunday. They will set up a display of their product range and will also have information that clearly explains the differences between the various clothing options available.

This is a great opportunity to look at some of the clothing on offer, ask questions about the products and even place orders.

The order window will be open for two weeks from Friday 19 January – Friday 2 February. If you wish to place an order on Sunday this will also be possible. You will need to pay by credit card not cash.

So now’s a great opportunity to stock up on Waratah kit. Remember if you’re wearing Waratah kit in a race you’re far less likely to be chased down by your club mates.

Try The Track

Try the Track

The first Try the Track session was held at the Dunc Gray Velodrome last week with ten riders getting on the track under the guidance of Barrie McLean with the help of Waratahs Terry Freshwater and Stephen Joyce.

Some of us had been on the track before and got a refresher, others were hitting the boards for the first time.  We quickly progressed from riding around on the baseboards to going higher up the banking, finishing off with swapping turns in a five lap race.

This is aimed at getting more members interested in track riding ahead of the club Track Championships to be held on Saturday 10th March at the velodrome, but it is also a great opportunity to introduce more riders to this aspect of the sport.  Once you get the bug, you can join in with the many track events run around Sydney, including regular racing run by Bankstown CC or LACC.  It would be great to see more Waratah representation at these events.

We will run a second Try the Track session on February 7th at 9:30am.  Please contact Stephen Joyce stephen.george.joyce@gmail.com or Terry Freshwater freshwatert@ymail.com if you would like to join in.
