Senior A Focus
We are now four weeks into the season and the Track League is still wide open with everything to play for. The competition between riders is most intense within Senior A as, of course, the overall League winner will be decided from these riders. The first event of the evening was a Scratch with A and B racing together. This resulted in a win for Jake White with B rider, Tom White second and Grace Lister (racing in Senior A for her first season) third. After a series of Match Sprints it was onto a Course de Primes event where Mahyar Abbott (also riding his first season in Senior A) took the first lap before falling back and allowing Jake White to take the lead and then distance himself from the rest of the field and take the maximum points for himself with second place going to Giulio Cervi and third to Jake’s sibling Zak White. In the other Course de Prime it was Will Farmer over the line first with Tom White second and Grace Lister third.
More skilful handicapping was in evidence for the final event of the evening with Brotherton Cycles riders Brian Handley and Karl Ward joining Tom White, Grace Lister and Simon Orme (Brereton Wheelers). The fast pace helped by Brian and Karl ensured that Tom and Grace couldn’t be caught by the rest of the riders and at the Intermediate Sprint it was Tom over the line first followed by Grace with Brian taking third. After the full 22 laps it was still Tom first and Grace second but Jake White managed third place.
Jake White currently leads Senior A Rankings with 96 points. Zak White is in second place with 65 points and Will Farmer is third with 51 points. It is, however, too early in the League to make any meaningful comment other than to say that we have an exciting season of racing ahead of us.
