Yes, volunteers again


Still need a few more for the pursuits. Qualifiers will be three races of three riders, but station 2 may need to be used if there is a false start and a rider takes a second run so we need people to cover that also.

Remember that if you’re not riding pursuits you won’t be doing much else so nothing to stop non-pursuit riders helping out.

Click here to go to the spreadsheet to put your name down.

If you are helping for pursuits, then please come to the judging table no later than 6:30 for briefing and station allocation.

Other Volunteers

We also still need another judge for tomorrow, and a couple of marshals. Click here to put your name down.

Returning Numbers

A reminder that next week (the 11th) will be our last week, so if you won’t be there please hand in your league numbers at the end of the night to the judges desk.



Track League News: Week 17


Just another reminder that the pursuits competition for next week (Week 17, 4th August) is still open for entry until Tuesday 6pm. You can read more about it at the original post here.

Also a reminder that we need about 3x volunteers to run the pursuits.

Remember that if you are NOT racing the pursuits you’ll have a wait anyway, so no reason not to help out if you are a non-pursuit rider.

To offer your services as a timekeeper or holder please add your name to the spreadsheet here.

Also next week…

There is a race meeting on at Brighton Racecourse on Wednesday through Friday. If your route to track takes your past there, especially if you have to come up Wilson Avenue, you might want to go a different way or leave earlier.

Post Season Social

A few of us are planning to head over to the Park View pub for a drink or two after the final night on August 11th. It’s an open invite to anyone in the league who fancies popping along. Go on, you earned it.


We haven’t set a date yet but will be doing so soon. This is the time to get together any thoughts about anything you might want to get put on the agenda. Ideas with support are more likely to be discussed so if you can get a few other league members to put their names to it as well that will help.

We will be planning to do a post-season survey as soon as we can when the season is over so think about any feedback you might want to give for that too.


Tonight: Volunteers and riders required!

Firstly, still two spots to fill on the volunteers grid. As well as regulars away it would seem a lot of people re not attending now that school has broken up and people are probably away, which means grabbing a random person tonight is not feasible. Fill the spots or no racing. Click here to put your name down. Which brings us on to point 2.

We have few riders signed up for tonight so far (if I discount those of you who’ve had an entry carried over for several weeks in a row, presuming you won’t show). It’s quite borderline as to whether its even really viable to run it tonight so if you want to race, get your entry in soon please. Click here to enter.




This Week

Still two marshal posts and an i-pad operator position to fill, at minimum, if we want to race tomorrow.

Don’t just presume someone else will do it, a lot of the usual volunteers are away this week, and the remaining two weeks as well so we need some additional hands to step up. Click here to put your name down.

Next Week

Still an empty volunteer sheet for the pursuits. Click here to put your name down.

COVID Restriction Easing

And what does it mean for us at Track League?

In short, very little.

  • Our track limits are within the permissible minimum bunch sizes set at their most restrictive anyway.
  • The track and trace QR check-in is still encouraged, so those will still be put on display.
  • There is plenty of room for social distancing to continue. Please respect those who may wish to keep a social distance outside of the racing bunch and vice-versa.
  • Entry will remain online only for the time being, as it saves a considerable amount of work on the day. We may consider bringing it back under different conditions.

Weather is looking good this week. Lets try and make it a final 4 weeks to remember.

League Entry

Sorry about the delay in the entry page being created this week.

Each week we have to move across any no-shows and also make sure that we bill anyone who didn’t pre-enter on the night. This all adds to the admin.

With that in mind, there are quite a few “late entries”, if we want to call them that, each week, and the same faces seem to crop up an awful lot!

Entry for track league is open until 3pm on the day so please enter online, as the additional admin of chasing post-race entry payments all takes time.


Our pursuits champs is up in a week or so’s time. There will be a separate entry form just as we had for the sprint champs. Keep an eye on your inbox.


Track Entries Now Open

Sorry about the delay, but entries for this weeks track league are now open.

Racing Cancelled: Week #13

The results of our poll put each senior category at less than 10 riders, and the youth categories at just three each. This leaves the league in a loss making position (though that is not the only consideration it is an important one). With the volunteer positions being a bit stretched as well we have decided that we shall cancel this week and look forward to the Devil Championships next week.

So either enjoy the match(es), or go enjoy the empty roads for a couple of hours.

See you next week.

Sprint Competition: Track League Week #11

If you are a registered member of the league you should have received an email from RiderHQ detailing the sprint competitions along with a link to enter (for free).

If you did not see it, please check your spam/junk folders, and be sure to add and to your whitelist.

If you still can’t find it, the content is below.

Sprint Champs

Putting the disappointment, yet again, of a wet Wednesday behind us we can look forward to our sprint championships.

These run slightly differently to the other championships, in that, for the senior categories it is an “opt-in” championship.  This means you must sign up separately to compete.  Entries are free.  Heats are decided by a timed 200M sprint qualifier.  Heats are then run down to semi-finals, then lower finals and then upper finals (depending on entrant numbers).

Youth minor and major will have their own sprint champs but will proceed directly to seeded heats, rather than a 200M qualifier.  they do not need to enter online, all youth will be included automatically.

If you don’t fancy it, the schedule (click here) has races in it specifically for non-sprint champs entrants, so there won’t be a points imbalance if you do not enter.

Seniors should sign up here:

Entries close 6pm on Tuesday.
