LVRC ‘Olympic’ Omnium Newport Velodrome February 9thth – 10th   2014

 

This new event  promoted by the enthusiastic organiser Mike Amery on behalf of the LVRC  at the Newport Velodrome .  Unfortunately I was unable to ride due to a training crash recently. So via clubmate Bill Cotton (Belper BC.) I have managed to compile a brief report on the event.

The Omnium consisting of 6 events covering many of the track disciplines, from sprints to longer distance endurance races, similar in principle to the athletic decathlon. The event was classified into 7, 5 year age groups. The events being: (1) Flying lap sprint, (2) Points race, (3) Elimination race, (4) Pursuit, (5) Scratch race, (6) Time Trial. In each event the winner scores 1 point, 2nd 2, points and so on.  At the end of the competition the winner is the rider with the least points.

The flying lap race is a single timed lap with a flying start, each rider being allowed 2 laps warm up and then on the penultimate lap unleashing a sprint coming off the final banking to hit the line where the clock is started until finishing a lap later. This is for pure sprint riders. In the ‘A’ (40-44) group John Russel (Strada Cycles) produced a 35+ mph. ride, but the fastest ride came from Ralph Carter, a C cat. rider(London Dynamo) who produced a sub 15 second lap, 37.56mph ride. Worthy of note was fellow Belper BC. rider, Simon Parkin,  only returning to the track last year (A cat.) finished 2nd. to John Russel . Bill Cotton, also finished 2nd. in the ‘F’(65-70) group to evergreen Dave Rutherford. 

But the most outstanding efforts of the weekend came from D cat. Chris Davies and E cat. Steve Davies, no relation I believe, who went on to win all their events in their category  both finishing with a 6 point total in the D and F category.

Not being there, it is difficult to assess the quality of the racing. But from my informant, Bill Cotton, I am  assured that the weekend was a brilliant success, with good racing and no crashes and enjoyed by all competitors.

So to sum up,  the winners were:  A cat., John Russel (Strada Cycles); B cat.,Pete Georgi (Giant  Halo Films); C cat., Ian Greenstreet( Newbury R.C.); D cat., Chris Davies(Giant Halo Films); E cat.,Steve Davies( Ferryhill Wheelers);  F cat., Dave Rutherford(Bush Healthcare); G/H cat. Lady rider classified as H cat. Arja Scarsbrook.  

I must also mention clubmate Bill Cotton who also won his elimination race and finished 2nd. in his first pursuit ride ever.

 

I felt that such a prestigious promotion was worth mentioning on the website; well done again Mike
