We recently received a message from Iain Cook the Great Britain Cycling Team Foundation Coach.
The message that went out to riders at the last circuit RSR is that they should be aiming to race once a week (or up to 2 times a week). This regular racing is important to their learning and development, most of it will be fairly stress free local racing and should be fun and motivating too. For riders who also race track or mountain-biking (these could count as their 1 race a week) they should be looking to do a circuit race at least once a month too. All of the regions midweek racing series are now up and running, so it shouldn’t be too big a journey for anyone:
Mondays: Angering, Sussex
Tuesdays: Crystal Palace, South London or Goodwood, Sussex
Wednesdays: Herne Hill (Track), Preston Park (Track – starts 18/5)
Fridays: Cyclopark, Kent
