TRACK CHIT CHAT
From Ian Gray.
The Opening Track Meeting is upon us this Sunday 28 October at 3pm.Warmup at 2 30pm.Come early as you need to register & obtain you’re seasons racing number. We all need to be patient as this is an ” orientation ” meeting and we have lot of new keen riders (which have really impressed me with their initial skills & fitness at bike fits and at orientation .We need to emphasize rules and safety,not only to the rookie riders but also to those returning to the velodrome.The first event is a special 2 lap time trial over 800 M,so new riders can get confidence riding competitively. As we have no track records over that this distance it will be run under record conditions with riders on each side of the track 3 watches on each rider.Winning riders in each grade will establish a record for the 2lap distance. Next we will have scratch races in each grade to help establish handicaps for future events on the program. Look forward to seeing you all at Fielding on Sunday.
PS. Road bikes on track start at 1 30 pm.
