Despite a poor showing from the GCC Senior Track riders on what was an almost perfect 30 degree evening, the first track racing session of the year was held at the Geelon West Velodrome (Church St) on Wednesday night. With good junior numbers Pam and Nev decided to run a 3 x Scratch Race event to kick things off for the new season. It was obvious that the youngsters had been putting in a few KMs over the winter period with solid results coming in from Mackeely (promoted to seniors after her 1st round win), Dom and Lincoln. These guys are not only getting faster but they are also getting older ! Watch out seniors.

Senior racing was somewhat hamstrung with just 4 riders in attendance (boosted to 5 with Mackeely joining in Rd 2 & 3) and with a strengthening wind it was a stark reminder that the GCC Geelong West oval is not only a tough track, but also quite windy and relatively hilly….a real change from a winter racing indoors at DISC. The results spoke for themselves, and reminded us all that James Blight is going to be a tough man to beat this season.

Whether you own a track bike or not (we have club bikes for hire), have ridden track or not, please come along one Monday night to give it a go and help support this important branch of the GCC and you never know you may just catch the Track bug !

All good things must come to an end. Thanks to Pam and Nev for running the night, to Danielle Bridger for scoring and supplying sausages, James Blight for coaching and to Bakers delight for the bread. #gcctrack14
