Trek Summer Sprint Series round 5 done & dusted
Another one done
Thankyou to everyone who helped (Bev, Ann, Rich, Merv, Lucie, Sue, Tyler, Will, Dino, Nathan, Emily, Pat, Andrew, Doug, Nicko etc), we had another great day's racing at round 5.
My writeup is here but that's just the racing roundup, the behind the scenes stuff is terrific. Our system is working very well and everyone's giving me loads of positive feedback on how the races are run and the opportunity they're getting to take part in this unique series. This isn't my doing, this is our team and the hard work and practice we all did leading up to the first rounds, Dino thrashing through the draw software, Bev and Nathan and Dino and Rob all getting together to do practice runs, Nath and I doing little things like timing how long it takes to walk a lap, to do a slow lap etc. And of course Trek Australia for believing in us and providing some great prizes and the Blackburn Cycling Club for the trust and support with allowing us to run the series at the Blackburn track outside of the usual club race committee structure.
We've had good attendances over the last two rounds and I think we have enough momentum for this to be even better next summer. Once a few more riders find out about it and how it runs I think it'll be something that riders consider training for and making a season goal, and that's a great result for our team.
Thanks everyone who was involved, it's a fantastic series and I'm very proud to be part of the team that's running it.
