Junior Come and Try Session at DISC this Tuesday

Pete has organised another Come & Try session over the school holidays for Preston Juniors this Tuesday, 4th April, between 12pm and 2pm.

This is a great opportunity for our younger members to experience riding in an indoor velodrome under the watchful guidance of our coach Peter Wykes.

Great news for the kids, the Preston CC Kids Clinic will continue as normal over the School Holiday period. Pete will be on deck to coach the beginners at 10am Saturday and intermediates at 11am.

Junior and Senior Training (from 12 onwards) will not be held over the school holidays (April 8 and 15). Juniors and Seniors are still welcome to use the track at this time, however no formal coaching will be available for those two Saturdays.

The 2017 Preston Juniors Club Team

The 2017 Preston Juniors Club Team

Congratulations to all the riders for representing the club so well; the kids certainly did the club proud in what, for many of them, was the first time they’d raced in team events against teams from other clubs.

All the junior teams rode well and while it’s certainly not all about podium finishes we even managed to get a few of those.

Thank you also to all the parents for supporting the junior athletes by bringing them to training before the event and ‘managing’ them during the course of the event which turned out to be quite a long day at the track.

Finally a special thanks to club coach Peter Wykes for his tireless work preparing the juniors over the course of the last few weeks.
