Welcome to a short week after the buzz of an additional day added to the weekend yesterday,
A big congratulations to our 2104-2015 ILT Sports Awards finalists who were announced at a special function on Thursday night. Cycling has again knocked it out of the ball park in terms of results over the past year and our 10 finalists, including 5 out of 7 in the senior sportsperson category – is nothing short of outstanding.
Good luck to you all when the winners are announced at the formal shindig on 26 June Read more here

Lock Up and End of Track Sessions
All those using the track in the evening, can we please be a little more aware of security and how the place is left at the end of evening training please. Last Tuesday all the folders were left down at the track (with money in them), the Lock Up door was left wide open with all the lights in the lock up and under the track still on and the West swipe card door was left wide open. The Stadium crew shut everything down and brought the folders up to the office for me.
Please, please slide the folders and money under the office door or at least lock them in the lock up at the end of sessions. Also make sure lights are off and doors are shut and locked. Your help is appreciated.
