Round 3 Winter 2017

We had 48 junior riders taking part in Round 3 at Lansdowne. With such a large turn out, the atmosphere was abuzz with riders, parents and volunteers.

It was great to see full grades and good racing from D grade all the way up to A grade. The A’s put on a great show with a solid performance.

Some of the parent feedback received was that the strong numbers in the higher grades seem to be leading to really competitive racing as riders are forced to work harder rather than looking at each other to see who wants to work. This makes for great racing for the riders and the spectators alike.

100m between the top 10 Scratch B grade riders.

The D grade riders always seem to have fun riding with their friends and playing between events. -A very important part of the sport. Some of the C graders have started to become rather competitive as they try to make their way into the grades with the bigger kids.

Both B and C grade have seen a lot of growth this year. The stronger B graders shouldn’t be surprised if they are tapped on the shoulder and asked if they want to give A grade a try.


Time Trial

We ran the new timing system for the second week. Disappointingly, it didn’t go as planned and the data we captured was deemed unreliable. Normally around a quarter of the riders achieve a PB with points awarded as a win (10) plus their participation points (another 10). This week, all riders will receive points for 4th (7), plus their participation points. We have learnt a lot and we will be implementing extra measures including a dedicated device to capture the data, as well as paper based timing to fall back to in the event of failure. Apologies to all the riders who gave it their best this week.
