Welwyn Track League 2021 Results and Prize Money

Congratulations to all this year’s winners of the Welwyn Track League series. Despite a lot of early season rain, which always seemed to occur on Friday evening, 11 league events were possible.

John McClelland (AeroLab Ward Wheelz) won the Senior A category in a close fought contest. At the start of the final meeting he led Oisin Murphy (VC Europe) by 6 points but by winning the 10 lap scratch and the final 10 mile he could not be caught and retained the series.

The Senior B league was won by Michael Sumner (VCL) from Lee Rowe (Team Terminator) and Paul Stewart (Full Gas Racing Team), tied in second place. Lesley Bodell (Welwyn Wheelers) won the Women’s category with Sophie Lankford (Team Jadan-Vive le Velo) in second place.

The two youth groups were won by Henry Hobbs and Elijah Storti (Welwyn Wheelers).

Thanks to all the officials and helpers from Verulam CC and Welwyn Wheelers who combined to run the Track League this year after the blank year of 2020. The numbers have been healthy this year with 140 league members registering and including participation by some of our local stars when not competing internationally. As ever we are keen to increase women’s participation and more support is needed in this area.

Prize money will be £2 a point for Senior Riders and 50p per point for youth riders payable when they return their League body number. The final meeting of this year will be the Track Open meeting on Friday 10th Click here to enter (via BC website).
