Criterium series 2017
After a fantastic set of criterium races at the start of this summer, we're set to race again.
Start: Wednesday 25 January, sign on from 5:30pm
Location: Wodonga TAFE Logic Campus, Albertson Road, Barnawartha
News: watch the club Facebook page for confirmation of details & updates
At the moment, we're planning fortnightly racing (so week #2 is on 8 February).
Come for one race or many - each week will be great. If you can make a few and stay consistent, you could be a series winner.
New Year means two things: write the wrong date for many weeks, and renew your racing licence (or get a new licence). You will need a current licence to race, and we will need to see proof - the card, or the confirmation email.
This is the link for racing memberships.
See you next week. And don't forget your membership!
PS, for trackies
Junior track training and riding starts again for 2017 on Monday 23 January, at the Pearsall Street Velodrome, from 5:30pm. The riders are having a great time with club legend Greg Featonby. We'd love to see more join in.
Club Championships are on this week (7 December) for criterium racing. The Christmas Party for all on the following weekend (10 December). And we really need helpers with a number of club roles as we head into 2017.
We've had four great evenings of racing at Wodonga TAFE's driver education centre, Barnawartha. There's one more for 2016, on Wednesday 7 December. These races will be our club championships for each grade. Get there from 5:30pm to sign on & pin on a race number. As you'd expect, only AWPCC members can become club champion. But all-comers can race. The more the merrier! If you're off the bike, come and watch. You'll see more than just 11 seconds at the end, like the video below from 23 November.
Help needed: running the club.
There is a desperate need for us to have more club members helping out - in many roles. Without more hands to assist, we really won't be able to run races. Yes, it's that big a deal.
People have changes with workload, or family needs, or move from the area ... so they have to step down from roles. Can you - or your nominee! - help with the general club committee? Or the race committee (that's imperative)?
It's clear people are contributing - look at those who set up signs, marshal, etc. But what we're looking for is people who can help with fundamental club-running activities.
How? Come to general committee (Monday 12 December, 7:30pm, 374 Amatex St, East Albury). Or email the secretary, Chris Little email@example.com.
- Junior Track Cycling runs for two more weeks before a Christmas-New Year break. That is: 5:30pm @ Pearsall Street Veldrome, on 5 & 12 December.
- Don't forget to renew your licence before it expires at the end of December.
