International Track Day

posted 6 Jul 2011, 15:34 by Kevin Monaghan
Saturday saw the International track day held in Sundrive Dublin.  Lakeside Wheelers had one rider participating under the Irish Development Squad, Sarah Piner. The ladies raced the Omnium which consisted of 4 events over the day followed by 2 invitation events thereafter.

Without going into too much detail the days racing works by participants being awarded points, the higher your placing in the events the lower the points scored. It was a successful day for the Development squad with Sarah finishing second on 5 points behind World Cup rider Rebecca McCurley over from Australia on 3 points. Sarah also took second in both of the invitation events the Kerin and 6km Scratch.

The racing is fun at the track and as always I would highly recommend going along and giving it a go. There will be a ladies training day for the Omnium during July and for any details please contact Sarah.
