Club Cluster Training at Newmarket – Road and Time Trial

Mark Wyer will be running some youth road and time trial coaching sessions at the Wildtracks Kart Track, near Newmarket on Wednesday evenings this summer.  I have space for 20 riders at these sessions.
The sessions will work through the basics of road racing and build up to looking at tactics, team working and coach led racing scenarios.  The circuit has a great surface, a variety of corners and a gentle change in elevation.

  • Riders must be aged 12 – 16 (Youth A or B)
  • Priority to members of Go-Ride clubs
  • You must have a road bike (no aero/tri-bars or cyclo-cross tyres)
  • £5 per session
  • It’s preferable if you are available for the majority of the sessions
  • Sign on by 6:45pm ready to start at 7pm
  • Finish by 8:30pm (we may have to finish a bit earlier at the first session due to light fading)

There will be access to toilets but no changing rooms.
The dates are Wednesdays from 30th April to 16th July (but not on 28th May or 18th June).
Email Mark to register with your name, age and club.
