Round 2 Summer 2017/18

We had a last minute cancellation for Round 1 at Lidcombe Oval in the previous week when the weather turned just before the start. Round 2 was a completely different kettle of fish with a hot afternoon and plenty of people running back to refill water bottles.

It was great to see new riders having a go for their first time with ISC. There was also a few kids who transitioned from freewheel (regular) bikes to track bikes for their first track event.

Speaking of firsts, we’ve introduced time trials to our weekly summer events. The best chance of maximising your points is to get a PB in the time trial. After all, riders only have to beat themselves. -Every week they are a week older and stronger! Oh to be young again.

By the end of winter, kids were chasing a PB every week to make the top five. We hope to replicate that in the summer season at Lidcombe. You don’t have to be the best, you just need to be improving!

Riders will earn points on the first three events this summer. Events include a time trial, scratch and handicap, however we will typically run another two or three events depending to time. See details in the Summer Schools Cup Information page.

 

A strong turn out for both freewheel and track bike riders.
Start Time

Parents are reminded to be at the velodrome by 2:30pm at the latest as you still need to unload the car, sign-on, pin numbers and warm-up. We start uploading the start list at 2:45pm and need time to process entries and prepare the system. Unlike the winter season, the back of the start list will be strictly for riders in need of a restart eg, after a mechanical, pulled foot etc. Late riders will not be added to the start list.

If you’re running late, please call us. -Look for the words “Running Late?” below this post or any other page (mobile view) for what you need to do.

 

Time Trial

Our first time trial of the season ran reasonably smooth. -We expected that it would take some getting use to but overall, it seemed to run well and will only get better as kids begin to understand how they are expected to start, finish and leave the track. We have already started to tweak the new system to keep things running smoothly and keep riders safe. Next round we will:

  • include additional volunteers after the finish line to help younger riders.
  • omit latecomers from the time trial. -We are too busy running the TT and keeping everyone safe to change things at the last minute.
