We understand that many U16 riders are racing in Scotland  on the following weekend so we are structuring the camp so that the emphasis on the first two days is more of a technical nature  with a view to skill required for National Championships and would recommend that riders going to Scotland, give the final day a miss.  This format, with first two days being more technical,  may also suit Juniors who may have been stage racing over Easter.   The staggered start (with overlap) will also help us ensure the both groups of riders get more from the camp.

Tuesday : U12 / U14  Focus on Standing Start TTs  (with Gate for U14) .  Track Skills
