Our friends at PNP & Wellington Velodrome have announced details for a Sunday series starting in November. Details below.
The season-long points based competition is open to all grades and abilities and will run from 4-6pm every Sunday afternoon from November 4 until April 2013. Riders can accumulate points in graded racing that go to an overall league table. The Sprint Ace competition is back too, and there will be a new Team Scratch competition to compete in as teams of clubs, shops or just mates.
The Speed League has come about based on rider feedback and lessons learned from previous seasons. This is your chance to be part of something awesome so start dusting off your track bike.
Last week Gareth came down from Palmy and bombed some hills with us.
I didn’t get any photos on the ride, but here’s some from the pre-start.
Thursday the 22nd was a perfectly still night; Richard, Tim and I hit the streets.
The route was a reverse-double-bays of about 33km, heading out through Newtown and stopping in Seatoun for some shark-n-taties on the beach.
One reason not to clean your bike. Let this be a reminder to take care when cleaning a track bike, and if possible remove your chain!
