Several young riders turned out to try the race course on Brodick Park for the Hinckley Flyers 5 Go-Ride Racing Series. The testing course had a twisty central section then a curve up the natural bank in the park leading downwards to a sweeping curve and faster straight section before a final few turns just before the finish line.
After a warm-up and a few practice laps, a time trial got the afternoon’s action under-way, before a scratch race and a team relay completed the day’s schedule.
Cheered on by parents and grandparents, all our riders achieved good results – some experiencing their first Go-Ride Racing event. The session was finished with some well-earned chocolate cake after which medals were awarded to the winners!
Special thanks to Elspeth Brimley, Roger Towe, David Mather and Tim Ellershaw without whose help the afternoon would not have run nearly as smoothly.
