Mid Season Track Report

Mid Season Roundup. Ian Bibby / June 12, 2014 2014 is turning out to be quite a busy year for Finsbury Park Trackies with many members so far having enjoyed the Track Training sessions at the fabulous new London Velodrome.

Our first club session at London velodrome

Our first club track session on Thursday 17th April, was excellent; everyone had a great time enjoying a mix of skills and fitness exercises. We must have had at least 1hr 45m on the boards out of the two hours. Natalia was the only one with no previous track experience and the coach (Rob) gave…

Newport Velodrome Training – 3rd Nov

Chris and Vince cruised down to Newport track to join in a ‘corporate’ session being run by our coach John Capelin, Sports Coaching. Session was 4pm to 7pm for a relaxed afternoon. Turned out not too relaxed as some of John’s clients had a shortage of track skills and a surplus of energy; I was…
