This year we are running an early season three week Women’s Track League on every second Saturday in April at 1430 at Sundrive Velodrome. We will be running a race program to suit experienced track riders and those new to the sport. Track Accreditation is a pre-requisite to race and we will be giving specific instruction to those who are newer to track.

Racing is open to Senior/Master/Junior/U16 Women and we will be having A and B category racing based on experience. Each group with have 4 races always starting with a Scratch race which will have a warm up neutralised element. Other races could be short Points, Race, Elimination, Mile or Kilo Dash and the final race would be a handicap or Hare and Hound.
Racing in this league will leave riders nicely poised for participation in our Wednesday Night Track League which then begins in May and also the Duane Delaney Track Grand Prix which will have Women’s Categories based again on experience.
There are plenty of opportunities going forward from there to participate in National Events or indeed to race as a part of a team in our June Team Sprint / Team Pursuit event which we are running to help promote the Team Sprint / Team Pursuit National Championships later in the year. We allow mixed teams for the first of those events, but for Nationals, all riders must be from the same club.
We would encourage all accredited riders to take advantage of this Women’s Track League to come to Saturday training to develop their skills and fitness. We would also encourage those not yet accredited to do so and get involved. There is a Women’s Track Day hosted by Arcane Track Team this coming Sunday and upcoming Track Accreditations on March 18th and April 8th. Details of all training sessions, accreditations and how to sign into the appear on www.trackcycling,ie and every event and training session is listed on the calendar on that website.
Please note that Accreditation is a two stage process, with the first stage to attend a formal accreditation session, and the second stage to attend normal group training.
