Track News April 2012
On Easter Tuesday 6 youth riders (Connor,Amy, Harry, Nathan, Georgia and Halle) and 4 senior (Alan G, Neil, Darren and Martin W) attended a session at Manchester Velodrome, planned and coached by Len, with assistance from Alan Gornall. Time on the track was spent gaining valuable experience for the upcoming National Omnium series. The riders learnt how to perform a standing start, Time Trials, how to ride around the track looking behind for their oponent and taking part in match sprints. It was a fantastic session, very much enjoyed by all the riders. Thank you to Len for taking time out to coach the session, now its onwards to the nationals that begin next month in Dundee and Edinburgh.
