|The girls Scratch race gets under way.|
Friday 9th of may saw the summers first Grass track race of this years league and true to every other event we've had this year the rain came out to play but we didn't let it stop our fun and the racing went ahead all being it on geared bikes rather than the track bikes.
|The boys scratch race.|
First race was the 1 lap Time Trial with four riders setting off a querter of the way around the track from each other at once. The fastest time of the day was 29 seconds set by Gyula Buzasi from Southwold for the boys and 34 seconds by Mercy Phipps from gayhurst in the girls race.
Following this we scratch races with years 4,5 and 6 all racing at once in the boys and girls races. Medals will go the top three finishers whilst points were awarded 1st to 10th in the three year groups which meant most riders scored some points for their team. Harry Gregory and Mercy Phipps( both Gayhurst) won their races.
After the scratch we had the elimination race or Devil as its known where the last rider over the line each lap is taken out of the race - these were closely contested with Harry and Mercy once again being the victors.
The final races of the day were team pursuits with two riders from each team battling it out against their opponents against the clock over three or four laps. The girls were up first with the times for three laps being Gayhurst - 2.07min, Kingsmead - 2.48min, Tyssen 3.04 min, Southwold 3.10 min. The boys did four laps - Gayhurst -3.35.6 mins, Kingsmead -3.17.71 mins, Tyseen - 3.19.13,Southwold 3.19.53 - very close times between the last two there.
Everyone had great fun and the rain held off mainly. Looking forward to seeing you all at the next one on the 13th of June.
