Welwyn Track League – 26 June 2015

WELWYN TRACK LEAGUE – 26TH JUNE 2015

Sponsored by Peloton Hatfield

George Olive Cleans Up

26/06/15 at Welwyn Wheelers track league meeting Sponsored by Peloton Hatfield and supported by Herts County Council saw a much depleted field due to other races taking place this weekend. Due to this there were only 25 youth riders and 19 senior riders.

The senior A racing only comprised of 5 riders. This played into the hands of George Olive (Finchley RT) who is very much a sprinter, so the small field was to his advantage winning all the senior A races.

Olive also won the 10 miler, which saw a number of attacks try and fail leaving Olive to take the closing bunch sprint.

Tom Durkin (Welwyn Wheelers), had a good night in the senior B racing taking wins in the point’s race and the hare and hounds. Durkin took a little while to warm up as he did not place in the opening senior B race which saw a hotly contested sprint won by Ben Selfe (Lee Valley CC).

The youth AB racing was very competitive with 15 riders in the field. Nathan Blackmore (Welwyn Wheelers) earnt a good win in the scratch attack with 2 laps to go holding off the closing field. Alexi Edwards (Palmer Park) had a good night taking a well-earned win in the block pursuit.

Tom Sharples (Welwyn Wheelers) won all the youth CDE races apart from the handicap race, for the second week running.

Jason Burrill takes the initiative

19/06/15 at Welwyn Wheelers track league meeting Sponsored by Peloton Hatfield and supported by Herts County Council saw 38 senior riders and 25 youth riders take part in fiercely contested racing.

The senior A saw some very competitive racing with Tony Gibb (Full Gas racing) and Frank Longstaff (Team Terminator) taking most of the spoils. Gibb took the point’s race by the scruff of the neck ridding just under half the race off the front on his own.

The 10 miler saw a great win for Jason Burrill (Peterborough CC) attack off the front with a lap and a half to go. With no one in the group willing to take on the chase, the sprinters left it too late and Burrill picked up a well-earned win.

The senior B racing was very open with a different winner in every race.

Tom Sharples (Welwyn Wheelers) won all the youth CDE races apart from the handicap race.

The youth AB racing saw a great ride by Louis Bilyard (Lee Valley) in the point’s race. Bilyard rode very strongly to take 5 points overall in the race and the win.

It is hoped the number of riders continues to rise as more riders mean better and more competitive racing.

 The senior A racing was very open with wins for John McClelland (Bush Healthcare CRT) and Mike Broadwith (Artic Tacx RT) with Joshua Roberts (Zappis Racing Team) pushing them hard.

 Ryan Green (Lee Valley CC) had another good night in the senior B’s picking up wins in the scratch and holding off the A riders for a win in the handicap.

 Alexi Edwards (Palmer Park) rode strongly in the youth AB, with very strong rides winning the scratch and handicap.

 The highlight of the race evening was the youth AB block pursuit which saw a great ride byChristian Manzi (Lee Valley), Ollie Stockwell (Welwyn Wheelers) and Reece Pollen (Welwyn Wheelers), who held off a charging Alexi Edwards (Palmer Park) in a nail biting final half lap.

Tom Sharples (Welwyn Wheelers) dominated the youth CDE racing winning all but the handicap.

Frank Longstaff tightens his grip

05/06/15 at Welwyn Wheelers track league meeting Sponsored by Peloton Hatfield and supported by Herts County Council saw Frank Longstaff (Team Terminator) take a clean sweep of the senior A races and the 10 miler at the close of the meeting. This dominant display by Longstaff has helped him to close the gap on John McClelland (Bush Healthcare CRT).

 The Senior B racing had the unfortunate accolade of the first crash of the 2015 season with Jack Loveman (Verulum CC) taking a tumble in the first event of the evening. Loveman suffered only road rash but chose to take no further part in the evenings racing.

 Due to a rule change enforced by British Cycling (BC) a number of the Youth A riders road up into the senior B racing. This seemed to suit Ryan Green (Lee Valley) who won the senior B scratch and came third in the point’s race.

 The rule change from BC also meant the youth A and Youth B class have now been put together as one. This did not faze Dexter Mansel-Thomas (Colchester Rovers) who took the win in the scratch race.

 Tom Sharples (Welwyn Wheelers) had a great night in the Youth CDE taking every event bar the last event of the evening, the handicap, which went to team mate Joe Kiely.

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).
