NW Youth League Round 2 Report: Speedway

Astley & Tyldesley Cycle Speedway Club put on another great event. It was the first time these Red Rose riders had tried speedway so they appreciated the expert coaching provided by the club before the racing started.

The racing was exciting to watch as each age group went through heats and finals. Some got the hang of it quicker than others, but George did really well and came 4th in his age group.

Thanks to the guys at Astley & Tyldesley - we really enjoyed the day as spectators and riders.

 

North West Youth League Round 1 Race Report

Red Rose at the Races!

George, Rhys and Dan were flying the flag for Red Rose Olympic this weekend at round 1 of the North West Youth League in Southport.

Road racing is a new venture for these guys and they all learned some valued lessons and picked up more experience of what is involved. They all learned about the gear checking and sign on process, and the importance of being prepared in advance.

There were two races for all riders; a short sprint race and a longer more endurance based race.

North West Youth League 2017

Calling all Red Rose Youth Riders!

This season we will be attending the North West Youth League events. This a series of races throughout the North West that covers four different disciplines: - Road, Cyclo-Cross, Mountain Bike and Cycle Speedway.

There is no need to complete all the events, riders can pick and choose which they fancy - but we are aiming to be at them all.

Jez and Mike will be there to offer help and support - lets go and have some fun!

MTB Skills Coaching

Look in our coaching page for details of MTB Skills Coaching that we are putting on over the weekends of 4th, 11th and 18th March.

The sessions are all about building skills and riders of all ages and abilities are welcome.

Come on down and challenge yourself!

 

MTB is Here!

Last weekend saw us out on our MTBs on Saturday and on Sunday!

On Saturday morning we had an MTB specific coaching session and we worked on balance, cornering, track standing and front wheel lifts. There was a mix of ages and abilities but every rider was challenged to develop their skills. Thanks to Jack and Jez for delivering the session.

We are going to be running similar sessions during March so keep an eye out for news.

On Sunday we put our skills to the test around the Red and Blue routes at Gisburn with eight riders braving the elements.

 

 

BMX fun coaching

Our friends at Preston Pirates have invited us down to try out BMX - so lets get down there and see what it is all aout!

The session will run from 10am till 11am on Saturday 25th February and they will lend us bikes and helmets.

It would be great to meet up with Lilly, Rhys, Aidan and Oscar and try out something new, I will be riding there so hope to meet up on the day.
