The first event of the Baxter and Neilson junior track cycling series for 2013 was the scene of some amazingly fast and skilled racing by our juniors.
36 riders took part and many parents stayed to watch and cheer and help out with the many tasks that make track racing possible. Thank you to you all.
This event is an omnium series and the riders race half the events of an omnium on each evening. Points are accumulated over the series and a yellow jersey awarded to the winner for each evening and ultimately by the series leader in each age group.
Winners for this week were:
U13 girls – Lucy Dawkes
U13 boys – Josh Miller
U15 girls – Madeleine Gough
U15 boys – Kain Bowles
U17 girls – Emma Cumming
U17 boys – Brayden Stephens
Spot prizes were awarded to Sam Russell for gutsy racing, Brooke Hargest for outstanding improvement and Ronan Ferguson for a time trial PB.
Well done all of you!!
Many thanks to the riders for your good behaviour and team spirit. Thanks to all the helpers and parents and biggest thanks of all to our awesome sponsors – Ray and Trish Galt from Baxter and Neilson Plumbing who make the whole event possible.
