Hoghton Tower, Preston
Updated with details of the course and coaching for young riders, but please see the section about the weather and parking.
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.
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.
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!
