Club Track Championships – Saturday 2 March

The Club Track Championships have been scheduled for Saturday, 2 March at Dunc Gray Velodrome

Sign on from 8.30am for a 9.00 am start.

As in past years we will be running a modified omnium format of 5 events.  The program starts with a warm-up Scratch Race over 10, 20 or 30 laps depending on grade.  This is followed by a new event for 2019, a Kilo. 4 laps, 1000 meters, timed from a standing start.  After the Kilo a perennial and exciting favourite, Kerins, return this year.  We have secured the service of John Crouchley, an experienced derney rider, who will draw the fields up to top speed.  Event 4 will be an Italian pursuit, giving Waratahs the chance to combine in a team race that allows every rider to ride to their own strength.  The last event will be the annual Wheel Race.  Handicapped over 6 laps, every rider has the chance to hold the trophy.

Depending on numbers there will be five grades: Under 50 A and B, Over 50 A and B, and a novice grade.

If you have never ridden on the velodrome, this is the time to try.  We will have a novice grade and we can supply a bike on the day, however, you will need to attend a Try the Track event prior to race day.  Contact Stephen Joyce on     Stephen.Joyce@foxtel.com.au  or Terry Freshwater on    freshwatert@ymail.com

See you in March
