QUEANBEYAN TRACK PRACTICE SESSION
THURSDAY 10 OCTOBER 6.00 PM
ALL WELCOME - DONT MISS IT !!
The 2013-14 Track Racing season will kick off with a practice session on Thursday 10 October at the Queanbeyan track.
There will be no racing. All interested riders are invited - particularly new riders and track novices. It is a great opportunity to give track a try!
Queanbeyan track is located in the park in Central Queanbeyan (behind the police station);
Track & road bikes acceptable;
New riders can get practical advice on gearing, bunch riding & track etiquette;
Interested riders can try out a track bike;
Experienced riders can tune up the machinery & motor;
All riders can express their preference for events & races;
The practice session will be around 1hr 30 mins;
There is no formal structure to the practice. You can do your own thing.
We hope all riders will later adjourn to a selected Cafe to discuss the coming track season.
A few basics on track etiquette for the practice session:
If you are cruising around the track, ride high (next to the rail);
Tempo riders use the centre of the track;
Use the inner track if you are circulating fast or sprinting;
Hold your line - don't make any sudden changes of speed or position;
Be very careful if you are crossing or moving on / off the track;
Start from the fence and be aware of riders approaching;
Be careful braking on road bikes. Remember the track bike on your arse has no brakes!
Regular track racing will start on Thursday 17 October.
