March 8/11 13:52 pm - FCV Youth Championships
Posted by Editoress on 03/8/11
The Forest City Velodrome hosted their second annual Youth Championships on Saturday afternoon at the 138m indoor Velodrome in London, Ontario.
Fifty two (52) riders registered from all over Ontario to contest the eight divisions of athletes. The Ontario Cycling Association supplied the three commissaires for the event; special thanks to Anne, Ed and Steve, plus the regular FCV volunteers for their timing and scoring of all the racers throughout the event.
The FCV will make modifications to the event for next year to accommodate the large number of riders - each division had 8+ entries. The format of the day was individual timed events to accomodate the many new track racers from the National Cycling Centre Hamilton.
The three event Omnium included a standing start 500m, standing start 5 laps and a bit, while the final event was a flying lap that all the kids like (to show off their speed). Complete results for each division can be seen below.
At the end of the night of hard racing a Pizza Party had all the young athletes talking about how fast they were during the event.
The next event at the FCV is scheduled for Saturday March 26th at 7:00 pm. All age groups will be competing.
