Dulwich Hill Trackies, please make an effort to get to Round 2 of the series at Hurstville oval tomorrow night 12 Dec
including a full program of graded races with feature wheel races for both seniors and juniors - prizemoney (or prizes for the kids) up for grabs. All results will go towards the overall six-event series pointscore in each grade. It's a great chance to ride Hurstville velodrome before our Christmas track carnival on December 29. The track offers plenty of seating and grassy areas for spectators, so bring the esky and some snacks. Indicate your interest on the facebook event, and enter on the night. $10 open riders and $5 juniors (U15 and below). The track is flat, so suitable for juniors from under nines. Warmup and entry from 6.30pm. Racing at 7pm.

Message me if you would like a lift to Hurstville or need a bike picked up from the velodrome. It would be great to have a big DHBC turnout.

Another great night of track racing with 26 riders across 4 grades. We raced scratch races (derby), Keirens, Miss and out (otherwise know as elimination race) and a 10 lap graded scratch race where B grade had a half lap head start on A grade. Thanks again to Phil Bates for running the night and to Morgan and Richard for commissairing and doing the lap board. Welcome Justin and Hannah to track racing! Results below. The number denotes the place and the letter is the grade so 2C mean the rider placed second in the C grade race.

A small but quality field raced in two grades with James Fowler flying the flag for Dulwich Hill in A grade and myself and Ben in B grade. I managed third in most races getting chicked by Lizanne in the Sprint heat and the miss and out. Luckily Ben managed to save honour for the club by beating his fiancee by a tire thickness in the B sprint final.
