Track Report: Good Friday Track Racing
Herne Hill Velodrome (HHV) Open Day
A group of TCC members took the annual trip to HHV to take in the wonderful atmosphere and watch Jess Rhodes – Jones compete in the Women’s novice races. Slightly under geared JRJ did TTC proud and finished a well deserved 2nd in her first race. Well done Jess.
For the TCC spectators it was tough supping beers and rumbling through the jumble and buying bargains on the stalls that were available and watching JRJ suffer.
Lee Valley Velodrome (LVVP) Race Meeting
As JRJ finished her racing and drove up to the Lake District to spot Alex Tinsley and James Bradley undertaking secret training, all the spectators headed for East London and the Lee Valley Velodrome to watch Emma Towers compete in the Women’s series of races.
Emma competed well in the sprints and kierin but was waiting for the scratch race to show how competitive she was. A breakaway of 2 riders was caught with 2 laps to go and Emma leading the front finished an honourable and well deserved 7th – well done Emma.
Look Mum No Hands provided the rest of the TCC spectators with beer, pies, scotch eggs, cake and coffee.
