More January News...

Session cancellation, Saturday 23rd January

Our 8-11am track session has been cancelled as Revolution want the rider's D to set up for their event.


York track training day

This is now on (weather permitting) and will run from 1-4pm on Sunday 10th April at York Velodrome, York Sport Village. It will focus on omnium events so bring your omnium kit and please use appropriate equipment and gearing. It is a new outdoor track, 250m and one of the Northern Youth Omnium rounds will be held there on 7th May so it's a great opportunity to prepare for this. Usual session charges and please keep an eye on the weather forecast. I will check conditions with the velodrome first thing on the Sunday morning and email if they have to cancel.

Youth Tour of Scotland

We have two U16 boys teams going to this event and would like to enter a girls team also - but we need more riders for a team! The girls event is open to U16 and U14s and is a great opportunity for Youth A/B girls with road/circuit racing experience. The event is from April 1st to 4th (full details here) , please let me know if you are interested.

Support Matt Rotherham!

Sportcity Velo's Matt Rotherham has launched a fundraising bid to support his 2016 sprinting season. Matt has made great progress over the past few months - some of you will have seen him beating national sprint champion Lewis Oliva 2-0 and setting a 10.14 PB for 200m at the last Revolution - and if you would like to support him this year you can make a donation on hisgofundme page. Read about what he's up to on 53x12.net.
