The Club Track Championships have been scheduled for Saturday, 7th March at Dunc Gray Velodrome. Sign on from 8.30am for a 9.00am 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 Time Trial over 2 laps, 500 metres, timed from a standing start. After the TT we are running a new event for 2020, a Tempo race. The Tempo race is held over 10, 20 or 30 laps, again, depending on grade. In a Tempo Race 1 point is awarded to the first rider to cross the finish line, on every lap, after lap 5. 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. Following the Italian we are offering Novice riders an Elimination Race, in lieu of the Wheel Race. 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. The Novice grade is for new riders. We can supply a track bike on the day, courtesy of CNSW, however, you will need to complete an Introduction to Track session prior to race day. For details on these sessions please contact:
