Over the next three weeks track cycling will be heating up! There is track racing every weekend, starting on April 5 and culminating in the ever popular, exciting Easter Grand Prix!
As we look forward to the exciting racing in the weeks to come. we look back on the 2013 campaign … sweet memories of a strong team, awesome supporters and equally powerful results!by hummingbirdscc
On many counts, the 2014 Track League has been a resounding success with many highlights .. athletes starting on the track, youngsters starting to show promise and others returning after some lay off. At the same time we were really concerned when Martin, one of our strong racers suffered a serious spill and is now recuperating.
It is always fun and interesting to take a top-down look at the results of the series to get a perspective on what has been accomplished by our cyclists. The chart below summarizes the results for the track league. Yes, that’s 8 1st places, 8 2nd places and 7 3rd places.
|Category||Places at finish|
|40 – 49||1||1|
|50 – 59||2||2|
|60 – 69||1||1||2||4|
A sincere thanks to our manager Michael, as well for helping with organizing, registering and making sure that everyone is ready to race. As many of us know, there is a lot more to racing than putting your bike on the line and competing. A manager does all of the running around that would distract us from being our best in competition. Many thanks, Michael! (Thanks to TriniView for the picture)
Congrats to you all and best wishes as you prepare for the upcoming busy track meets!by hummingbirdscc
As the track league draws to a close and we get ready to “fire up” for the big track events in the coming weeks we celebrate Joey. Joey bested some stiff competition to be the champion of the Masters 70+. The pictures above show Joey receiving the trophy for the league.
It is truly inspirational to see these boys competing and encouraging others to jump back on their bikes to have some fun and to be in the best health of their lives. Congrats again!by hummingbirdscc
