LFGSS track day VIII 2.0 4/5/14

track-day-viii

After the LFGSS track day VIII was rained off last year, the 2.0 version has just been announced.

There will be some awesome prizes, everything from champagne and cheese to free coffee and t-shirts, so hopefully enough for people to win things even if they weren’t first across the line.

Also it was be a laugh because we all know LFGSS is the friendliest place on the internet.

To race you will need to have done an induction on the track, and I hear they are implementing a kind of accreditation process for the coming season, but there’s loads of time to get that sorted  before May.

The probable race program is currently:

Mens’ A/B Qualifier (10 lap Scratch)
Women Scratch (10 laps)
Cat A Devil
Cat B Devil
Women Devil
Cat A Keirin
Cat B Keirin
Women Keirin
Cat A Points
Cat B Points
Women Points
Hare & Hound (All In)
Keirin Finals

 

So come along and have a blast!

 

 

 

 

Now here’s some metal

LFGSS track day 2013

So today was a blast. The less than annual LFGSS track day was in full swing at Herne Hill Velodrome, albeit with fewer people than last time due to the bank holiday. The sun was out and so was the lycra. It was great to see so many friends and heckle them when they lost.

Here’s a load of photo’s. I’ll probably upload them to facebook to tag everyone as well.

2012 track world cup

So the 2012 track world cup happened this weekend at the Sir Chris Hoy velodrome in Glasgow (even though Chris learned to ride track in Edinburgh).

There’s been lots of this happening

Laura Trott won the Omnium again. Jess Varnish came second in the sprints with Becky James third. Ed Clancy,  Philip Hindes and Jason Kenny got second in the team sprint. The small amount I could watch while at work was great.

Which reminds me of Laura Trott winning the Devil (elimination race) at the track world championships (not the world cup, they’re different apparently) earlier this year, which was the most exciting bike race I think I’ve ever watched.

 

Now here’s some metal.
