go-rideLogoThere will be a holiday camp at Palatine Circuit during the half term holiday. This is aimed primarily, but not exclusively, at those riders not attending the Tuesday night sessions at Tameside and Palatine for some pre-season coaching. Not for those having just attended the RSR at Half Term. For info

Lancs. Track Cluster

Next sessions is on the 2/3/14 and now live for online entry. See link: As usual please we encourage riders that have previously attended to do so again. This is more important for any riders in the Amber or Green groups who have not yet been accredited as this may be the last session before the Youth Track Omniums. There will hopefully be a GR accreditation session before then and it would be good to see riders progressing from the cluster sessions to regional racing. If they haven’t gained the necessary skills we can’t put them forward for the accreditation session.Riders MUST be club members and Amber and Green Group riders MUST be BC members. Bikes to be booked through the office, speak to Rob Mace. These sessions are for riders who have not yet begun competitive track racing, even if accredited. (Sorry but no riders currently racing Monday or Friday track league)
