Track is Back – Saturday 3rd February

Track is Back : Track Training at Sundrive Velodrome recommences on Saturday 3rd February. We will be running a combined Senior and Youth Session at 10am each week for Accredited riders. Separate Youth Training (U12/U14) commences on Saturday 16th March with a separate Youth Accreditation on March 09th.
We won’t be starting up the 8am Derny session until April.

We are also holding ‘Open Sprint’ training at12.30 on Saturdays for those who are working to their own plan, but please note these sessions are for Sprint Training only and there is also a training fee due. Times for these Open Sessions will change as the season progresses.

All Inclusive Option : We are once again offering an ‘all inclusive’ package for Seniors/Junior at 100€. This includes all public training, including Open Sessions, all leagues and also bike hire for new riders. Please note though there is no bike hire available for Derny or Open Sessions. There is also an ‘all inclusive’ available for Youth at 60€ and this will also include a 5 week Saturday Youth League later in the year.

There is also a Facility Fee (10€) due from all Senior/Junior/Coaches who use the track, irrespective of whether they train in public, private or open sessions. This is your contribution to the upkeep of the facility.

Please note that the ‘all inclusive’ is only an option – the ‘pay as you go’ will also be available and if you do choose to opt for the all inclusive deals we will operate a grace period where you can pay within a month. All payments can only be accepted via the Eventmaster link.

Saturday Session : Our Saturday public training for the first few weeks will focus on improving fitness and track skills and it will be a longer session than usual. Each week the session will consist of a 20 minute warm up, some skill drills, a longer endurance fitness section, some instruction on a particular event and all sessions will finish with a mock race.

Youth : There is a full program of Youth Events in the coming season including a 5 week Saturday Youth League, The Paddy Doran Youth Omnium, Leinster and National Championships. We also plan to include Tuesday training and host Easter and Summer camps.
