Six and the City


I’ve been involved in track racing in one way or another for just over ten years – and had a passion for bike racing that goes back further than that. It’s eight years, this year, since I attended my first World Cup race and five since I attended my first World Championships.

Derny Pacer Training – Welwyn, Gosling Stadium Sunday 9th May
