Junior Women’s Race at Woodbridge

Junior Women’s Race at Woodbridge last week. A small field meant that Gaia and Rebecca were only racing for three points for the win. The field rapidly thinned to five with both of the girls in. With three of the very long laps to go Gaia punctured but with the aid of a formula one’ish wheel change she got going again but some way behind. There then followed a super human effort to get back to the field, with the aid of Rebecca refusing to take a turn in the bunch. At the end the long sprint with a strong tail wind proved too much with both girls spinning out their Junior gear. Gaia finished third and Rebecca fifth.

Thanks to everyone that came, we require volunteers to assist with marshalling / pushing-off etc – if people could let us know what Tuesdays they can do and we can try to sort-out a rota .

Welwyn Track League – 22nd May 2015

WELWYN TRACK LEAGUE – 22nd MAY 2015

Sponsored by Peloton Hatfield

What do you mean no 10 miler !?!?!

22/05/15 at Welwyn Wheelers track league meeting Sponsored by Peloton Hatfield and supported by Herts County Council saw the lowest numbers this year. With only 23 youth riders and 38 senior riders, which was put down to the bank holiday weekend and school half term.

Unfortunately, the absentees missed a major change in the senior racing programme – the 10 mile race which traditionally rounds off the evening was replaced with a 35 laps point’s race.

It was the first outing in the Peloton Hatfield yellow leader’s jersey for John McClelland (Bush Healthcare CRT). He did the jersey proud winning the senior A devil and the senior 35 laps points race at the end of the evening. This was by far the most exciting race of the evening, with Andrew Hastings (Richardson’s Trek RT) pushing McClelland hard all the way to the end.

Home rider Keith Bryceland (Welwyn Wheelers) had a good evening in the senior B’s placing in all the races and winning the scratch race.

The youth racing was set alight by the youth CDE block pursuit, which was won by Euan Woodliffe (Welwyn Wheelers). This was an extremely close race and was only won by a wheel length by the trio led by Woodliffe, when at half way Joe Kiely (Welwyn Wheelers) was out on his own and leading by around ¼ of a lap. Kiely did win the youth CDE scratch and devil.

The youth A racing was dominated by Ryan Green (Lee Valley), in a real show of strength winning all category races with ease. This feat was nearly emulated by Ollie Stockwell (Welwyn wheelers) in the youth B, but he was pipped in the final race of the evening by Eleanor McArdle (Welwyn Wheelers).

Archie’s Derby Go Ride Experience

Archie Bracewell flying the Welwyn Wheelers flag in Derby yesterday (25th May 2015).

As Archie is only 9 they have been going to Manchester for him to ride the boards. Derby put on a special Go Ride session yesterday which allowed Cat D’s to ride “it was a fantastic afternoon and I can highly recommend it to anyone who has an U10 who would like to have a go”. They will obviously get more out of it if they have had some track experience – especially for the skills sets.

Well done Archie we are pleased you had such a good time
