Superclub at Newport Velodrome

Aminur and Tyrell coming in after a session on the track.
The latest Superclub session took place last Sunday 7th at Newport Velodrome in Wales. The superclub is a cluster of British Cycling eastern region clubs aimed at getting more of our young riders on to the track and upskilling them for racing. CCH turned up with the largest contingent for this session with seven riders, two coaches and three helpers traveling by minibus. After being split into groups the riders took it turns of 20 -30 minutes to ride the track practising various techniques, as any of them will tell you Newport isn't the sort of track where you can travel round slowly as your back wheel will slide out from under you, so a fair pace has to be kept up throughout. After four hours of this Aminur, Isaac, Logan, Louis, Ned, Shaquille and Tyrell were getting hungry and tired but were buzzing with the efforts they had produced especially in the practise races.
The superclub sessions are continuing throughout the summer up at Welwyn velodrome, all riders previously nominated will be nominated automatically. Riders new to the track are also welcome to attend - priority goes to U16/U14 age groups but U12 can apply too - there is a sheet up in the club whre they can put there name down.
