Youth Race Series


Overview
Experience the fun and excitement of racing in our club-confined 5-race series.
Our race series is designed to introduce members to cycle sport and develop racing skills. It is made up of road, grass track, mountain bike, time trial and cyclo-cross races, each held in traffic free locations.

Riders win points depending on where they finish in each race. The points are accumulated in a season long league table with trophies awarded at the end of the year.

The coaching sessions leading up to a each race will concentrate on the skills required for each discipline.
