Brunswick has a Tuesday roast

Brunswick is taking a page out of Hawthorn's book and running a more endurance-focussed track program over winter at DISC

Reading around the traps today I see that the Brunswick Cycling Club is changing their Tuesday night DISC racing program to a more endurance focus over winter.  This format (longer track races) was started off last winter by the Hawthorn Cycling Club with their 'Sunday Roast' which it was quite successful after a slow start and some interesting decisions re how the racing would be formatted.  I think this is a good thing for a number of reasons.  Firstly I think it's valuable to have a varied race program to provide variety (although the success of Glenvale seems to suggest that variety isn't so valuable!) and thus maintain interest, but with a schedule so riders can plan for and know what to expect at each race meeting.

Also it's a compliment to HCC's vision (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!), and it may bring more roadies into track racing.  Track's seeing a bit of a boom at the moment, Blackburn's last two track seasons were very successful with big fields and quality racing, and well-promoted, exciting and varied (Northcote, you get that?!) racing is great for everyone.
