Free track bikes!

We are at capacity in our storage facilities at Gosling track, so we are freeing space by removing six of the track hire bikes that are used less frequently. These are older bikes in sizes suitable for adult (or perhaps larger youth) riders, roughly 5ft6in – 6ft in height (174-180cm).

We will give these away to anyone who will use them, in return for a donation to club funds, and we are offering club members first refusal.

If you would use a track bike in this size range, PLEASE DO NOT JUST TAKE A BIKE! That would be theft!….instead discuss with Francis Gallacher at a Gosling training session and he will identify which of the club bikes are available.

Winter Indoor Track

The Winter Indoor Track season continues to see good form shown by our Youth riders.

Icebreaker Round 2

Josie Griffin and Imogen Chastell represented the club at the second Round of the Icebreaker Series in Newport on Saturday.

The Icebreaker Omnium events attract large entries from around the country and with 41 Youth U16 Female riders on the start list competition is fierce and the standard very high.

Amongst the highlights of the day were Josie and Imogen finishing 3rd and 5th respectively in the qualifying Scratch Race and then in the Scratch final Josie securing an excellent 4th place, with Imogen 12th.

Both riders qualified comfortably for the Points final and in the Points race final it was Imogen impressing to take 6th with Josie securing 8th.

In the overall Omnium standings Josie finished 7th and Imogen 11th both outstanding efforts in a high quality National class field.
