The focus for Juniors is skills development and fun. Many of our senior riders use this training to prepare for the Christmas Carnival Series however new riders to track are very welcome with more experienced riders providing guidance on getting used to track.
With a wide range of events track racing can suit sprinters and endurance riders alike.
JUNIORS use the track from 5pm to 6pm.
There will be some Track Bike available for use by Juniors.
Juniors will be required to wear a helmet, comfy sports clothes and running shoes/or cycling shoes if they have them.
