I'm arranging to get out of work early on Fridays for this. From all reports it sounds like the best thing ever.
How many weeks does it run for? Can't find any dates on the website.

News and Information
For Week 1
Friday, June 17 2011




Game on,
Bring it!
RAW Track (Race All Winter Track) is back for 2011.



RAW TRACK Newsletter 2011 sponsored by:

http://WWW.Bicisport.com.au

The 2011 intro clip
• Thanks to those who, sent me encouraging messages re: the intro vid posted on Youtube
• If you haven’t seen it check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8oZvKFl ... g&index=24

Week 1 Feature Race
The RAW Track 1.5km Wheel-race
• This weeks feature race will be the RAW Track 1.5km wheel-race
• Riders finishing in the top 3 of the warm up scratch race from Div 1-4 will qualify for a 12 up wheel-race.
• If Divisions are split into two, first and second will qualify.
• Trinkets + Cash prize

First week’s Program
• Round 1 warm up Scratch
• Round 2 The RAW Track wheel-race
Round 3 sprint (4 up’s over two laps)
• Round 4 Points Race (3 sprints)

• Round 5 Combines

Blue indicates Series Points scoring rounds

Explain these races
[size=6pt]Sprint- RAW Track sprints are usually run as 4-6 ups over 3 laps (2 laps this week) the first few laps are usually spent sizing your opponents up and positioning yourself for the optimum explosion to the finish. It is not uncommon for a sneaky rider to attack early in the hope of holding a lead to the finish. The sprint is a test of power, speed and above all, tactics.

Point score- Riders must score points by sprinting for intermittent sprints every 5 laps for bonuses (5, 3, 2, 1 points). Lapping the field scores a bonus 20 points, consequently losing a lap to the field scores -20points. Winner of the race is the rider with the most points. Although the lapping rule is indicated in this description, at RAW track the race is generally too short to secure the lap consequently we generally don’t allow lapped riders back in. [/size]


BSCC- RAW Track Canteen
• I am delighted to announce that Bankstown Sports Cycling Club will be hosting a Canteen at Raw
• The Canteen will provide the basics and it is hoped that it will be well supported by our riders and spectators
• Profits raised will be going towards covering costs at their Wednesday night training session which are currently running at a loss.
• Not only will we be supporting the canteen but also promoting the Wednesday Training session in a hope to turn both initiatives into profits.

Rain is not a problem at the DGV
• In contrast to a lot of NSW racing over the last two months, Rain is not going to interfere with RAW Track Racing.
• Despite this, please be prepared for a chilly experience.


Points for 2011 series starts week 1
• For every week you attend you receive 10 points
• Everyone is allowed to miss 2 RAW nights without losing to many points.
• In rounds 3,and 4 top 4 place getters receive 5,3,2 and 1point respectively
• From Week 11 August 26 place getter points are doubled.


Sign-on’s and Licenses ….. Bring It!
• If this is your first RAW Track for 2011 you will need to show your license …….It is everyone’s first for 2011
• I record your license as sighted and you are fine for the season.
• Sign-on’s are in Point-score order.


Website http://www.rawtrack.com.au
• I note in the poll of “Who will win TWE RAW Track 2011 Point series”
• It is Tiarian McManus who is the people’s choice ahead of David Stevens

• I note in the poll “Which Club will win the Hillbrick Club Challenge”
• Dulwich Hill BC are on par with Every other club.


2011 Sponsors
Stay tuned for more to come



















Money troubles?
• If you are experiencing money troubles please do not hesitate in approaching me so we can come to an arrangement.
• I would much prefer to see you race than stay home.
• In the past I have had reduced rates for families, pensioners and uni students and maintained confidentiality.

Hey guys, I'm in for tomorrow. What's the best way to drive to Bass Hill in peak hour? Hume Hwy all the way, or Punchbowl Rd etc?

(I'm not from Sydney and have never driven further west than Ashfield.)

It depends partly where you start from.
I find that leaving from either Redfern or Annandale that Hume Highway is the way to go. It can be a bit slow but it is fairly consistent. Several of us come that way.
Avoid the M5 it is bad news, especially on a Friday night.

Forgot to add that. Leaving from Leichhardt. Will take the Hume, also less chance of me getting lost, which is pretty likely really.

Glad to hear there'll be a canteen there with some food!

Yeah I saw some pretty big sprint attacks from Patrick, also from Michal. Some epic points race action from Simon and Alex too. Great to watch, I realised I was kind of spinning around on the spot on the infield. Looking forward to this season, annoyed to be missing next week though.

Have you guys looked at the RAW program for this week? Race 2 is a 'no race this week'
or something? does that actually mean there is no race this week, or is it a very clever
name?

I won a one lap screamer up against one of the all time greats of RAW track, David Brown, and that little up and coming Central coast lad Nick Yallouris, who was the fave for our race! In a time that beat Tirian McManus (but not half of B grade including our very own Andrey Slezak (21.54) who wasnt even trying?! But yeah :D What I have learnt, is that you dont love this stuff when it happens, because it may not happen often!

A lot of us managed to scream loud enough to win this time, I surprised myself. Crafty recorded 21.82 for me and Alex P who was 2 inches behind on the line. That was quicker than faster sprinters in divs 3 & 4 so I don't quite believe it? Fun racing anyway.

Explain these races
Win’N’ Out This is the opposite of a Miss’N’Out race. After a designated number of laps a whistle is blown for the first sprint. The winner of the first sprint is deemed the winner of the race and allowed to carefully withdraw from the race. Each proceeding lap sprint will produce the consecutive places from 2nd to 4th. Tip if you go for a sprint win it!

Mystery- This is a standard scratch race however the number of laps is predetermined by random selection by the organiser and concealed. The riders are given a bell with 1 lap to go.

Week 4 Bring it!

This week’s Races

• Round 1 Warm up Scratch
• Round 2 “No – Race this week” Every second week is a feature race.
• Round 3 Kierins
• Round 4 Winners Race

• Round 5 Combines + CNSW Time Blaster” (Time Blaster time is 8:48 sec for $100)

Explain these races
Kierin- The keirin is a motorpaced event that is very popular in Japan where it originated. In that country, huge amounts of money are bet on races and professional keirin riders command impressive salaries. It is similar to the match sprint, but features 6-8 riders on the track. A derny motorbike paces the riders from 25 km/h up to 45 km/h for the first few laps. During this time, riders jostle each other for the best position and this is often the roughest part of the event. With two and a half laps to go, the derny bike pulls off and the sprint is on. Team tactics are important here, as the leadout is often quite long. If one team can get two of their riders in the final, then they are at a distinct advantage. reference http://www.cyclingnews.com

Winners Race- The race is over 16 laps. There is a sprint with 13laps to-go, the winner of this sprint qualifies for the final sprint, however he/she must continue to race, keeping a close eye on the winners of the sprints with 10, 7 and 4 Laps to go. Each of these riders also qualify for the final sprint. With 4 laps to go all non-qualifying riders must withdraw from the race, leaving a 4 up sprint to decide the final placing. You can work out all the tactics on this one.

• Special Jackson Law and Timothy McMillan Fund raising event.
• Round 3 Sprints ( 6 up over 3 laps)
• Round 4 Point’a’Lap
• Round 5 Round 5 Combines

Explain these races
Point'a'Lap- The race is run similar to a point score-however each lap is a sprint for first place only and worth one point. The overall winner is the rider with the most points.


Sprint- at RAW Track, sprints are usually run as 4-6 ups over 2-3 laps the first laps are usually spent sizing your opponents up and positioning yourself for the optimum explosion to the finish. It is not uncommon for a sneaky rider to attack early in the hope of holding a lead to the finish. The sprint is a test of power, speed and above all, tactics.



Timothy McMillan and Jackson Law going to the Junior World Championship Moscow 17-21 August






• Two RAW track prodigies are heading to Moscow to represent our country
• Many of you will not be aware that a Junior level the costs involved in this fall upon the athlete (read Parents)
• Added to this there is the additional costs in attending compulsory training camps most of which are in Adelaide.
• The whole exercise cost $7000 per athlete and think of the cost if the parent wants to go be a supporter/spectator.
• We will be holding a fund raiser this week at RAW Track in a hope to raise a few hundred dollars to assist Tim and Jackson.

The Fund Raiser
• Tim will be riding a 200m fly this Friday!
• I am asking patrons to sponsor Tim for a unit of money
• This unit of money will be multiplied the amount of 1/10th below 11 Seconds Tim rides.
• Last year Tim road a 10.99 at RAW this would equate to 1 x $unit to be donated.
• If Tim rides 10.8? this will equal 2 X $unit
• Jackson will be able to aid Tim in his lead up to the fly.

Again in 2011- No series prize for winners of Div 5

• Riders will continue to score points in Div 5 and can take them up to Div 4 (as per RAW Track Constitution)

Round 1 warm up Scratch
Round 2 The Aqto / Bernard Beer 1.5km Wheel –Race
Round 3 1 Lap screamer
Round 4 Madi- Leads + Div 1 Madison
Round 5 Round 5 Combines


Explain these races

1 lap Screamers- Riders draw lots to start in position 1-4 up the track. The riders start in a Time trial hold (No-Push) for whistle start. First one back wins. Easy



Madison- A high speed, two person continuous race relay. Think of tag team wrestling meets track cycling - while one partner is racing the other is resting at the top of the track. This race is named after Madison Square Garden in New York where the event was first held. Two man teams contest the event. which is typically an endurance event. Only one rider from each team is allowed in the race at a given time, meaning that teams must take it in turn each lap (or more) to have a rider in the race. Changeovers are quite dangerous, but impressive to watch when done well - one rider circles around waiting for his teammate, who joins hands and imparts his momentum to the slower rider. At FNWTR we usually ride this on a scratch race format reference www.cyclingnews.com

Madilead- The pace in this race is set by a Madison team (see Madison). The bunch follows the Madison team for ??laps until, with 5 laps remaining the Madison leaders take off leaving the bunch to sought out the winner in scratch race style finish. The Idea of this race is to allow the lower grades to experience following a Madison change (which is a key skill in learning to ride a Madison). The pace of this race can often change with the experienced leaders putting in a few hard attacks to
