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.

MTB is coming!

Have a look in the events section to see the upcoming MTB events we have coming up.

We are hoping to run regular coaching sessions on Saturday mornings before our road sessions start.

The sessions will be based on building skills and confidence whilst having fun and getting a work out at the same time.

Good race face Becky, loving the Red Rose kit!
