Italian Flair

Last Wednesday the SCRL were pleased to welcome Francesca Selva, an 18 year old Italian rider currently studying in Brighton.

Francesca has been in Brighton for a while but has only just discovered the velodrome.

At her home, near Venice, she has both an outdoor track and indoor velodrome for racing. Although the only female rider on the evening she proved fit and competent with Italian support from the stand, and even a brief Italian commentary over the tannoy.

The photo shows Francesca being pushed in the handicap by Izzy Stone who has also raced league this year; though has been more focused on A Level exams and racing in Belgium.

Accreditation Part Two This Friday

Just a quick reminder that this Friday is the second part of accreditation for those still to complete it.

Those of you who have completed week one AT ANY SESSION but not week two, and are not signed off as accredited, should attend. There will be no further accreditation sessions this year so it is important that you attend if you want to race.

Also remember that if you are already accredited you can still attend as a practice session for just £3! You won’t get it that cheap at those fancy indoor velodromes, and you might get a bit of a tan too!

See you Friday!
