You all seem to be reporting road events, and I don't think this forum is restricted to road only?
Either way - here's my report from last night (7th of August). Worth pointing out, my local track is 458m, not 250m.
First race, 4 lap handicap. Two groups start from either end of the track (at the pursuit lines). Stronger riders (including myself) started half a lap down. We managed to work together really well and caught the group with half a lap to go. I was shot and was at the end of the paceline that caught, so I didn't even try and sprint for it. A guy from my handicapped group won.
I was first out. I was disappointed but oh well. I dived under the group but it wasn't enough. I've never been a good tactic rider.
Team Pursuit (6 laps) -
We didn't choose teams. My team had five, whilst the other team had four. Although, the organisers (our coaches), said that we were handicapped in that one of our riders was very weak compared to the other four.
A good pace is held for the first two laps, then our 'weak' rider pulls to the front, the pace is dropped significantly. The next rider managed to pull us back up to pace. Then I gave a strong pull, dropping our weakest rider (we were allowed to drop two riders). Skip forward to the last lap. I pulled into the first corner, with the other group in my sight (about 100m ahead). Even though we had won, we still practiced three riders 'sprinting' for the line together three a-breast. (Team Pursuit, now my new favourite event!).
16 lap with 8 lap sprint - I'm a youth rider, and our category was told to pull out at 8 laps.
We were given half a lap handicap - we should of had a lot more!
We held the handicap and pretty much team time trialled it to the finishing lap. I was on the front as we passed the line, so I thought why not and attacked. I made it stick until about 50m to the line, made for a nice sprint but I lost by about two wheel lengths.
Overall - Not bad for me, would have preferred more sprint events though.
Sorry for long post.
