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.

Sprint Championships This Week!

It’s championship time again! Double points are on offer as usual and it promises to be an exciting night of racing. There are a few non-qualifier races too so don’t be disappointed if you aren’t a sprint specialist there will be racing for you too!

Do note that the schedule has been tweaked slightly to ensure we get the maximum out of our track time. As always the schedule is subject to change on the night for operational reasons.

You can check out the nights schedule here.

See you there!
