Thanks for setting it up Eddie! You can put my name down for this.

I'd vote for the Scratch race instead of tempo (purely personal preference).

Just to clarify, is it going to be a full flying lap or a flying 200m like last year?

Whichever one you're slower at!!
Actually the full lap just to change things around bit.

Well done to all the riders, it was great to see the turnout from the youth alongside the seniors. Well done to Eddie for promoting the day, and as Valdis says to Jen, John, Charlottle, Laila and associated other helpers. And to Jen again for the sandwiches and cakes!

From memory, the events today were:
  • Flying lap
  • Scratch race
  • Elimination race
  • Flying Kilo
  • Points race

Most of the events were split into youth and seniors, resulting in the following standings:
RiderPoints
Ronan241st
Caoimhe242nd
Andrew223rd
Aine141st U10
Katie111st U12
For the youths, the top place came down to the wire - the sprint placing in the points race, with Ronan taking 2nd there ahead of Caoimhe in 3rd to take the overall.

RiderPoints
Valdis511st
Daniel422nd
Fionn423rd
Freddie40
Eddie241st Vet
David Hearne17
Dimitri16
David Hendron10
Shane10
Valdis was dominant for most of the morning, but there was a turnover on the next step on the podium when Daniel took a couple of sprints and the win in the Points race to jump from 4th to 2nd and knock Fionn down a spot and Freddie off.
