After 16 months since last racing, coach Rob got back to it at Manchester last night. No spectacular results but picked up some points in the points race, gained half a lap in in a solo break the 25 lap scratch with an attack over the top only to be reeled back in and a top 5 in the 1km. Back to it now and a platform to build some better results on in 2017.
It was the first time out for our new kit from Miltag which received positive comments from other riders on the looks and also performed well, the skin suit is properly tight, the leg grippers sit perfectly without digging in and the chamois is really comfortable, we would highly recommend visiting miltag.cc for anyone thinking of getting custom kit.
Unfortunately James was unable to make it this week but will be competing at MRTL in the near future and Thom will start 2017 off racing at Derby Track League next week, we are excited for what 2017 holds in store for all our coached riders and can't wait to see the hard work they have been putting in over winter paying off.
Coach Andy is with British Cycling this weekend bolstering his coaching qualifications and knowledge so that we can continue to develop and offer the best quality coaching and advice possible then it is off to Amsterdam for Rob and Andy and coached rider Rory on Sunday to check out the continents velodromes before the National Track Championships at the end of the month where Andy and Rory will be looking to put in a top performance. Meanwhile Rob will be starting his PhD researching the Omnium on the 1st February, a really exciting 2 weeks ahead for InPursuit, we will keep you up to date with how it all goes.
If you would like our help InPursuit of your own cycling goals and dreams this year please feel free to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Thank you Simon Donoghue for the Photos and well done on your 2nd place in the 1KM!
