3.   At the last meeting the decision was made to request ALL licensed riders teenagers and adults to come to Ross Ogilvies home @ 27 Talonga Rd Woodend 7.30pm to commence the Commissaires training.  By doing it together we can support each other when we don’t understand.  The aim of this is to ensure that we wont be in the same position we are in at the moment where we only have one commissaire.  The expectation is that we will all take our turn at being commissaire during the year.   I feel that this will enable us to see what goes on behind the scene to enable a bike race to go ahead. SO Be there and help share the load

That’s it for now

Saturday Rides/Races

As we have no commissaires at the moment there will not be racing form any of the venues shown on our racing schedule.  However this doesn’t mean that there will be no riding. All rec/training rides will be commencing from the velodrome at 1.30pm  You are invited to come along and enjoy a leisurely or if you choose a harder training ride to prepare you for when we commence racing again.

In regards to commissaires, ALL adult riders over 18 are requested undertake commissaire training as a group at a location/time to be determined. This way it will be beneficial not only to the club where you will be expected to take your turn to be commissaire for a race, but to you as a rider as you will get to understand what goes on behind the scene at race meetings.

Please tell me by email what day/time/location suits you. My personal thought is that the sessions be held at Woodend in the evening during the week but you have to let me know. 

Look forward to a flood of interest.

Thanks Greg B Sec
