The Team Sprint is a four-member team event. The race is held over 4 laps of the 250m track, a total of 1000m. Two teams will be on the track at one time. Each starting and finishing on the opposite sides of the track. The lead rider will ride one whole lap then pull off as the second rider takes over for their whole lap on the front of the team. Next will be the third rider and finally the fourth rider races the last lap. Each rider will complete a whole lap on the front of their team. Changes will take place between the cones on the respective straights (between the pursuit line and a cone placed 15metres before). The following riders’ front wheel may not overlap the leading rider’s rear wheel until they are in this zone, nor can they pass the leading rider until after they cross the pursuit line. The leading rider must have left the sprinter’s lane before the final 15metre cone. The time of the team is taken on the final rider crossing their pursuit line.
All-comers Record Attempt
Each year our Track Challenge race day is open to teams wishing to challenge the All-comers record attempt.
Teams ride the same gearing as the Track Challenge teams - 81 inches but they are allowed carbon spoked wheels but no discs, aero helmets and the likes. Just notify the office with your team names before the event to ensure your crew can try for the record. It currently sits at 1.06.540 - set by Corbin Strong, Mitchel Fitzsimons, Conor Shearing and Sophie Bloxham in 2018. Entry is free.
