Dear All

Please read the following important information regarding the track champs tomorrow.

Sign-on and gear check opens at 8.30am and closes at 9.15am — we have a lot to fit in and not much time to do it! Gear check and sign-on will take place on the red track.

The D will be used as the rider area for roller warm-ups and waiting for your race. No warm-ups to be done in the stand.

Remember, U14s and U16s are on fixed wheel bikes and all other categories are on freewheel bikes. If you need a club bike you won’t be able to collect one until the stadium opens at 9am approx.

We are running a flying 200m at the start to help us seed the sprint heats. Only the following categories are to take part; U10 Boys, U12 Boys, U14 Boys and U16 Boys. Please be ready in the rider pen to get onto the fence at 9.15 prompt, and we will be going from youngest age to oldest to give all a chance to recover before the pursuits. If you are in the age groups above and don’t record a 200m time you can still take part in the sprints but you will be seeded last.

During the flying 200m there will be NO crossing of the track. Please make sure you have everything you need track side and are prepared (and don’t need the toilet). Crossing at other times will only be between races.

The running order for the morning will be flying 200m (for some categories), pursuit, sprint and bunch race. A race programme will be pinned up in the rider area for everyone to see. We hope to have the pursuit station list out to you in advance, but this will also be in the rider area for you to refer to.

Please be at your pursuit station in plenty of time. We need to get riders up to their station and ready to go as quickly as possible to be able to complete the full race programme.

it looks like we might have got lucky with the weather forecast, but in the event of rain during the day we will carry over any incomplete events to 3 October.

Most importantly of all, have fun. We know this is the club championship, but it is also an opportunity to race in a friendly atmosphere with your friends.

Matt & Fiona
