Velodrome 12th December
Friday night saw the best field for the season and it helped with the running of two trophy races. A mild evening with a gusty breeze did not help the cause for riding personal bests but several riders turned in new personal bests in the opening 1 lap time trials. Kaleb Jans (43.33) and Josh Wright (45.08), both getting used to new bikes put down personal bests whilst Bernadette Fitzgerald, also on a new bike took a second of her time at 34.80 sec. continued…

This was followed by the Bass Coast Challenge charity bike ride at Inverloch on Saturday for some whilst our top juniors were battling it out over Saturday and Sunday at the National junior Track Series event in Melbourne. The club had Thomas McFarlane, Austin Timmins and Will Lumby competing at this event so they were all missing from action on Friday night. continued…
