Warragul Track Summer Series

Postby toppity » Mon Jan 10, 2011 4:45 pm

Hi There,

Warragul Cycling Club will be holding their Track Summer Series in the coming weeks. The track at Warragul is great for both riders and spectators alike. There will be good prize money on offer and therefore some very good riders racing for it. A link to the dedicated web site is below. This is a very friendly and welcoming club, I urge anyone who is interested in track racing to attend.... you will not be disappointed. As these events are on Friday evenings, and if you live in or near the city, consider making a night of it. There are plenty of restruants in Warragul and surrounds and with the Freeway in place the trip is very quick. Racing under lights in Summer......there is nothing better.

Great nights racing. The weather cleared up and although it was muggy, it was fine.

Small fields of 6-7 in most grades, but good racing.

Next racing will be Friday Night the 28th....so really looking forward to that. If the weather is better I reckon there will be more having a go. :D

500m TT
10k scratch

Gippsland champs was fun last night.

There was good turn out. Juniors (4 grades), ladies, masters and elite went around. The numbers are definately not dwindling around here. I think there will be more people interested in track racing next year as well. :D

They combined masters 1,2 & 3 and 4,5,6,7,8. I'm MAS3 so I was in the first group.

It was run as an Omnium and I placed 2nd out of 3 enterants in all events. I was very happy as the blokes I was riding against are great riders. Gary Jackson won all and Michael Krausz was 3rd in all. Bloody hell Gary is fast. :shock:

The Elite scratch race was dominated by Breton Jones who lapped the field. He is in his first big wheel race tonight. Hope he goes well, along with Brett Rowlinson, in the Austral.

Thanks to Steve, Karren and all the volenteers that make track racing a Warragul such great events to be part of.

The last night of the Warragul Summer Series has been moved to 18/03 as the scheduled last night was washed out.

Should be a good night with Austral finalists Brett Rowlinson and Breton Jones going around.

Last race of the summer for me on the track tonight. It's been great getting back into track racing this summer. The people at Warragul Cycling Club have been the best.

Then it's back to grinding out some road km's. My form is waning so I'm not expecting too much tonight. I'm more interested to see if the two top track riders in the district show up to race each other. Breton Jones won the 2000m wheelrace at Bendigo last week and Brett Rawlinson came 4th and won a graded scratch race. I'll be more interested to see these guys go at it.

Should be a gret show and the weather looks like being o.k.

Hey Toppity, are you sure that your form is waning or is it, you have just peaked for the type of training that you're doing and the others are just, catching up in their fitness levels? :)

I definately think it's my form mate. I have done a few of the usual training rides and I'm up to a couple of kph slower on some climbs. I spoke with the bloke who has been training us on the track and he said that I have gone over the peak in this training block (as you mentioned) and it's time to accept it and start the next one. I'm ok with that, but I wish I could of held on for another couple of weeks.

I got smashed on the track last night. I only placed in two races and felt every surge stretch me. Two lots of club champs crit's coming up (one today) and regional crit champs next week. I'll still race, but my expectations are now lower than what they were.

Anyway, it's been a great summer and although i'm not looking forward to the grind of the next training block, I know will will benefit me next year.
