Dear All

We have the Track and Skills champs tomorrow (17th September) and here is a recap of timings. We have also attached the pursuit station start list so you can check your station (copies will be posted at the stadium tomorrow).

9.00 sign-on and gear check opens
9.30 sign-on closes
9.30 Rider briefing
9.40 Racing starts with flying 200 for those categories that require it, followed by Pursuit.

Flying 200m for U10 girls, U12 Boys, U14 Boys and U16 Boys.


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 for the track champs and all other categories are on freewheel bikes. If you need a club bike you will be able to collect one when the stadium opens at 9am approx.

We are running a flying 200m at the start to help us seed the sprint heats. This is only being used where we have too entrants for a category to allow us to run a straight sprint final.

Please will all riders in these categories be ready in the rider pen to get onto the fence at 9.40 prompt.  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. The pursuit station list is available below, 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.

Once the track races are over there will be a short break while we set-up the skills, and this is a good time to have a bite of lunch. We will require the D to be cleared after the track champs as we will be running a skills station there, and also for safety reasons as riders will be moving around the red track.
Please remember that U14/U16 riders must use freewheel bikes for the skills champs, so please bring both bikes with you!

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.
