I looked and couldn't find a thread for those CC members who race track. So here one is ... Currently I'm going through accreditation at Manchester, but choosing to take my time. So tonight I took the chance to race at Scunthorpe's Quibell Park. This week saw the return of track racing to Scunthorpe and the debut of a novice rider, just a 49 year-old one. I joined group B with the other 3rd and 4th category riders - Elite/1st/2nd's go into group A. It turned out there were two novices making their debut this evening: one lady and one male rider. Deliberately starting at the back of the group my first race was an E/1/2/3/4 10 lap scratch race and a baptism of fire in terms of the pace; I finished about 18th out of 25. Then followed 9th (scratch)/ 8th(devil)/ 8th (points) places in the 15-rider group B as I started to get a bit more comfortable in the mix, with points on the board then 11th in the E/1/2/3/4/U16 15 lap scratch race at the end. The aims of not crashing and not last were achieved. There were a couple of close calls when one rider moved wildly without looking, but otherwise I felt more confident as the evening went on. The only downside? I got lapped by my 14yo in the final race as he went round with the 1st and 2nd cat riders Have we any other track-riding CC'ers?
