Friday Night Winter Track Racing Week 8

Dunc Gray Olympic Velodrome, July 5 2002

Hopkins New Series Leader

Shaun Hopkins (Parramatta) showed his class and endurance by winning three from four events at the Dunc Gray Olympic Track Velodrome last Friday night elevating him to outright leader on the series point's ladder. Phil Dixon (Bicisport) having his first ride of the season rode aggressively picking up 40 points on the night. He showed sufficient form to put the other riders on notice that he will be a force to be reckoned with over during the remainder of the season. Up and coming 17 year olds Phillip Dixon (Penrith) and Chris Young (Parramatta) once again were in the thick of the action and served notice that they will be right in amongst it at next weeks 100 Lap Madison event. Phillip particularly showed great speed and endurance taking a 3rd placing in the miss & out race and taking a well-earned victory in the prestigious points race.

A major success story of the Friday Night Winter Track Series is the Women's racing. With 24 riders competing in two divisions, the women's series is attracting plenty of attention. Already, a number of our recently recruited riders are showing that they will be in the thick of things when the summer track season gets under way later in the year.

Sophie Cape (St George) led the charge in Division 1 with an eye-catching performance in the opening scratch race. Sophie rode consistently throughout the evening earning 47 points to be the leading points earner on the night. The ever consistent Keeley (Squeels) McNamarra (St George) was 2 points back on 45 points taking maximum points in a very aggressive ride in the Points race winning 3 of the 4 sprints on offer. Not far behind Squeels is Bicisport's Tanya Newton (39 points) who continues to show her all round ability figuring prominently in both the sprint and endurance events. Only 6 points separates these three riders on the series point's ladder. Other notable performances on the night came from Jackie Kejda (Illawarra) despite being restricted to U 17 gearing, Kyles Spencer (Illawarra)

Showing some good top end speed, Tunde (Gadget) Berryhill (Parramatta) returning from illness and Caroline Smale who rode strongly in the point's race figuring prominently in the top four placings.

Mick Kejda (Illawarra) had his best night of the series accumulating 47 points figuring prominently in all races. Mick now leads the Division 2 series by 1 point from the evergreen David South (Waratah vets) who must surely be in the best form of his career. Justin Worthington (Parramatta) said goodbye to Division 3 and now finds himself in Division 2 following some outstanding rides over the past couple of weeks. Never one to sit back in a race Justin continually attacked the field in each event lapping the field in the final points race of the evening.

A new division (2A) has been established to cater for the increasing popularity of FNWTR. Regradings sees consistent rider Steve Gilmour (Liverpool Leppington) installed as series leader, however strong competition can be expected from Clay Batt (St George), John Buckton (Randwick Botany) when they return to FNWTR from road commitments and the always-consistent "Blues Bros" Hugh and Jim Gray (Waratah Vets).

Division 3 sees Trevor Waite (Parramatta) takes over as the new series leader following a string of consistent performances over recent weeks. Adam Christopher (Southern Cross) and Maurice Hager (Koorangang) are riding strongly week in and week out and are expected to challenge Trevor for the series leadership over coming weeks.

Next Friday night (12th July 2002) sees the staging of the second of our 100 laps Madison event and the inaugural 5 lap Handle Bar Tavern Women's wheel race. A record field is expected to compete at next Friday night's series, as there is a break in the domestic road calendar.

Only 13 spots remain available for the Madison event. Riders will for the first time, be able to nominate their own teams.

Gates open at 5.30pm with racing commencing at 7.00pm. Spectators - gold coin donation and gain access to the infield arena to watch all races.
