Hi All,

Next week is the Christmas BBQ. Please RSVP and bring a plate to share

Welcome back to Tess Wallace, great to see you back riding again.

Congratulation the Lawrence Santos for his bronze medal for overall championship in the U15s at the metros last weekend.

Another great night to ride on the track with 26 riders over the two sessions

The first session started with 2 Pacelines, 1 from the main track and the other lead by Alison from the warmup track.
Next was 500’s for the riders on the main track while it was skills on the warmup track.
And again we finished the session with the more experienced riders buddying up with the novice riders and encouraging them to ride all over the main track

The second session started with a 15 lap Paceline followed by 500’s in groups of 3/4.
Next was a rematch of last week’s elimination. Rohan had pulled away early to have a ½ lap lead on the rest of the riders. The field of 14 was reduced to Sebastian, Jonathan vying for the minor places as they couldn’t catch the Rohan. Sebastian ran out of steam first, leaving Jonathan to come across the line in second place.

After a sort break and this the lack of seniors we stayed on the track for an Italian. With uneven numbers Rohan was given 2 laps as anchor of his team. On the front straight were Bat, Alison, Caitlin, Ruby, Luke, Sebastian and Jonathan, the back straight comprised of Oliver, Jo, Sandro, Harry, Sarah and Rohan. The racing was closing until a gap appeared in the riders of the back straight team so they slowed to group back together. Sarah and Rohan tried to close the down the lead of the front straight team and Rohan started to gain over him 2 laps but missed out by ½ a bike length. An excellent race to watch, well done all.

Then happy laps before the seniors took over

House keeping
Riding Licence renewal - a number of you need to renew as your licence will expire on the 31Dec2015 so renew now before you forget. I’ll be doing licence checks next year and if you don’t have a valid licence you can’t ride on the track.

Christmas BBQ and December training – the Christmas BBQ will be held on the 9th Dec so please bring a plate to share. Can you RSVP so I can gauge the numbers for the BBQ, thanks. Last training for 2015 will be the 16th which will be a casual combined session were parents are invited to ride, Mums and Dads must have a CA licenced to be able to ride.

Bikes for sale – there are a number of bikes coming up for sale, you kids keep growing. These will make a great Christmas present! If you have a bike for sale bring it down to the track as I’m hoping there will be some interest for the others.

Holiday training a Dunc Gray – once again, Barry and Tom will be holding training for U11 to U17 in early Jan. See here for details
