Track Cycling Feilding

 

Another dry clear sky greeted the riders but the cool South-westerly ensured the bikinis and board shorts stayed out of sight. The stellar appearance tonight was left to a restored war plane humming away in the sky above resplendent in camouflage livery and red nose cone. While the wind was a factor in preventing Lachie Ferguson’s gutsy effort to break his own under 17 flying lap record it was not enough to impact significantly of the nights results.

We had another good turn out of 22 riders with a few being new for the season but not new to the track and still we had riders away, so we certainly do have a solid core of riders and potential to move into the 30 plus category. If this line sounds familiar, you are right as it was the same in last weeks report but still valid.

The racing started with graded warm up races of 4 to 6 laps followed by Lachie’s record attempt that came up a second short on the time he set last season, but with the right conditions or an indoor velodrome Lachie has the ability to set a very challenging record. The warm up races are used to give the handicapper, Ian Gray a guide in estimating the respective handicaps for the nights handicap races. The riders competed in 2 to 3 lap and 1 lap handicap races in their grades followed by longer 10 to 12 lap handicap races. The handicapper performed the magic required to treat the spectators to some superb tight finishes with riders spread 4 and 5 wide across the narrow track dragging all power and speed from their tiring legs and warming the spirits of the cold and hypothermic spectators.

These are the results:

Rider of the night was Sean Whitehouse with a strong and dominant performance with 3 wins and a third, all from the scratch mark. The third was in the best race of the night when he finished within a wheel width to the winner Cameron Gibbons.
