fntl update

I've got some news from HA&CC 'Normally for Freewheelers I don't think they need accreditiation. Seniors yes. We are probably going to have a club registration system next year to try & get more riders from other clubs in, I'll keep you posted on that. Also going to try + set up fixed wheel accred s...

Friday Night Track League 4th September

Last race of the season and the Beacon was represented by Phil Farley and myself with Dave Farley and Simon Dighton in attendance. Nice to have some support on night that certainly had an end of season feel about it. I really must put on record my appreciation for Phil's entirely selfless efforts. I...

Friday Night Track League 21st August

Its a truism that you have to be in it to win it. This was certainly the case last night. However another truism is that you can only beat the competitors that show up. First up was an eight lap scratch race with a prime at 4 laps. I had a couple of early digs - but noone seemed willing to work a br...

Track accreditation

http://www.derbyarena.uk.com/cycling/accreditation/ I can thoroughly recommend Derby's track accreditation session(s) for anyone who is interested in riding the track; whether or not you intend to race. I did mine this Saturday morning and it was a really good session. Its a bit like doing your driv...

Friday Night Track League 7th August

A still and warm night and some good racing. In the 10 lap scratch Phil Farley mixed things up really effectively; launching two attacks in the early stages of the race. I got away a bit later with one of the Halesowen young riders - only to have the break chased down by the men in purple! It all ca...

Friday Night Track League 31st July

Excellent to see Phil Farley at track night. He picked up a 4th in the 2 lap scratch(I was 5th). I time trialled my way to a 4th in the devil. I got 5th in the Women/Vets points race, and hung on for 3rd (B cat) in the 30 lap A B scratch race at the end. Interestingly enough the table on the Halesow...

accreditation

Hi Tim, I'm heading to derby next w'end to get accrediation there. If halesowen aren't running sessions you could try there. then you'd have 'UK Track accredited' on your Licence. see http://www.derbyarena.uk.com/cycling/accreditation/ Youth 1 are predominantly U14 and U16 riders Youth 2 are predomi...

Hi Tim, http://www.halesowencycling.net/#!fntl/c2431 has the details. I think they have some track bikes available for hire. They say 'Registration with the league is available for both individuals and clubs, priced £5 and £35 respectively. For those with no fixed wheel racing experience, accreditat...

Friday Night Track League 10th July

Fourth dry Friday night on the bounce. Some good racing with Steve going really well - I didn't have a lot in the tank this week. I'll post more details. However totally agree with Steve's comments last week about it being a good night for spectators. You also get to sample Simon's cooking!

Friday Night Track League 3rd July

A good night's racing with a good series of races to encourage attacking racing. I was really pleased to see Steve Croggan heading toward signing on. The first race of the night was a 12 lap points. Me and Steve attacked immediately after the first sprint and got away in a group of three then four r...

Friday Night Track League 26th June

First track night of the season for me at Halesowen. I'd been up for it a fortnight ago but it rained; couldn't make last week. I was looking forward to racing in my new beacon kit for the first time. First race of the night for the B Cats was a 10 lap scratch. Noone tried anything very much during ...

Halesowen Friday Night Track League

Just wondering if any other bacon riders were intending to ride this year?
Are we registered as a club?
