I’ve been racing in the Newport Velodrome Winter Track league this year, and I am doing a lot of learning!
Peter, my coach, has been really helpful in guiding me how to approach the races, and whilst I have plenty to learn I am starting to get success.
The evenings generally consist of a Scratch race, the Hare and Hounds, a 4 lap (1km) Dash, Elimination race, and then my favourite, the Points race.
I have generally been able to win 3 of the events most evenings, and I enjoy attacking in the final part of the points race and trying to stay away until the end.
Hopefully this experience will help me in the Youth Omniums next season.
