Oceania Championships medals for McFarlane

LEONGATHA Cycling Club member Thomas McFarlane has been busy on the track at the Adelaide Super Drome this past week competing in the Oceania Track games.
Thomas returned from the championships with two bronze medals.
Thursday saw Thomas grab third in the Junior U19 scratch race whilst on Friday he was part of the four rider Victorian team to take third in the Team’s Pursuit.
On Saturday he rode in the Points Score race and after his team mate grabbed a lap on the field very early in the race, the rest of the race was spent helping defend that lead.
As a first year rider in this age bracket the performances have been excellent.
This week culminates around four weeks of weekend training camps in Melbourne so well done to David and Maree for getting Thomas to all these events.
Following last weekend’s working bee at the velodrome things are all set for the start of the track season.
An introductory night is scheduled for Thursday 16 at the netball rooms from 7.00pm to 9.00pm.
This is open to riders wishing to come and try track racing as well as our regular track riders.
Club coaches and officials will help get riders fitted out on bikes.
There has been a good turnout of riders with bunches of weekend riders at Leongatha, Inverloch and Phillip Island.
Enjoy the riding by joining in with a bunch.
At Leongatha riders leave from the Post Office corner at 8am and 9am both on Saturday and Sunday.
New riders are always welcome to join a bunch.
Club members will make sure you get back to the Post Office corner.
Track season training will start with training on Wednesday, October 22 and 29 (6.00pm) with the first racing night scheduled for Friday, October 31.
Racing starts at 7.45pm.
This is a great time and place to check out cycling.
Racing caters for boys and girls plus men and women.
2 bronzes in the scratch and teams pursuit.
