start line 24.10

The clocks are set to go back next week and as they do, winter really draws in. But you don’t need me to tell you that, your lights are probably fixed on your bike already. If they’re not, I hope you’ve at least checked the batteries are still taking a charge. (You really don’t want to learn this just before you set off for home as I once did a few years ago.) Now we’re rushing headlong into this dark, cold time of year you’ll no doubt be inundated with messaging about the number of days to go until Christmas. I am not going to insult you by joining in. I don’t know what it is, I don’t want to know what it is and anyway, I’m sure a CW subscription…

olympic qualifying on track after euro medal haul

The British team is mostly assured of its places at the Tokyo Olympics after it left the first major competition of the track season with nine medals. British Cycling’s riders picked up two golds, four silvers and three bronze medals at the European Championship in Apeldoorn in the Netherlands. Head coach Iain Dyer professed to be very happy with the result. “Midway through the Olympic qualification cycle, we’ve got an eye on two things. The first one is points that are still on offer this winter. Adding a nice chunk of points in the Euros in the Olympic events was good, but the other side of it is that the points that we gained last year have dropped off our tally. As it stands in quite a lot of disciplines we’re actually…

spilling the beans

My first coach told me that everyone has a tin of beans. Some people have a big tin of beans, some people a small one. His lesson was that while you can (and should) train to increase the size of your tin, you can also train to improve your tin-opening technique. You will know the kind of rider who has a huge tin but can only shake their beans out one at a time. Or the opposite, and my favourite to watch: a huge-tin rider who grabs that ring pull and empties out a colossal amount of beans all in one go, leaving themselves with an empty and clean tin, having somehow managed to scrape the sauce out as well. Control of your tin opener is a super-important trait for a track…

racing ahead

National Madison championships (October 26) Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker became national champions 12 months ago, but Anna Docherty — the winner in 2017 alongside Pfeiffer Georgi — is aiming to take back the crown. Ethan Hayter is seeking a third national title in the discipline. National omnium championships (October 27) Also being held at Derby’s velodrome, Hayter, Fred Wright, Ethan Vernon and Harry Tanfield are among the favourites in the men’s race. Laura Kenny edged Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker in the 2018 women’s championships. Beringen (October 26) The fourth round of the eight-race series, Britain’s Anna Kay has enjoyed a good start to the competition, recording a third, fourth and sixth place so far. Eli Iserbyt and Toon Aerts are the favourites in the men’s race. National Trophy Series round three (October 27) The third…

independent pedaler dominate closed circuit champs

After finishing second on three occasions, Chris Fennell (The Independent Pedaler) finally secured the RTTC National Closed Circuit Championship time trial, while his team-mate Joscelin Lowden won the women’s title at the Thruxton motor racing circuit in Hampshire on Sunday. Kent-based Fennell claimed silver medals in 2015, 2017 and 2018, and said after this year’s event: “I really wanted this one — I have finished second so many times, so this was one of my main targets this year. It’s just a relief to finally win it after so many close attempts.” He clocked 21-47 to win by 40 seconds from second-placed Ken Buckley (Nuun-Sigma Sport) with Arthur Franklin (Team HUUB) third. “I know the circuit like the back of my hand which helped a lot,” added Fennell. “The team has also come a…

laverack lays down marker for nationals

Pro road rider Ed Laverack completed his preparations for the National Hill-Climb Championships by slicing nine seconds from the old course record on his way to an impressive victory in the Bristol South CC climb at Burrington in Somerset on Sunday. The 25-year-old SwiftCarbon rider from Llanelli clocked 6-41 for the two-mile course, setting a new power personal best for good measure. “I was really pleased with how it went, it bodes well for next weekend,” he said. “It was quite a shallow climb so it was hard for me because I’m quite light at the moment, but I got a new power PB.” Seven days earlier in the Welsh Championships on The Tumble, Laverack had to settle for second behind reigning national champion Andrew Feather, with pacing issues the main reason for that…
