Reading Track League Bordeaux-Paris Meeting 2011


With the May Day Bank Holiday weather reliably unreliable, the organizers of the Reading Track League Bordeaux-Paris meeting have two or three backup dates - stretching out to late September - pencilled in every year. And most years they get to use a couple of them.

Not this year, though. A strong, gusty wind made rear wheel and gear selection a challenge - and sapped the riders' strength - but the sun shone throughout and the meeting went off without a hitch.

Preston Park Track League 5 May 2010


On the eve of the general election, there was an exceptional turn-out of 78 riders despite the cold conditions, and each race in another action-packed meet had several candidates for victory. In the search for an outright winner tonight, my vote was definitely going to the joint league leader Felix English. The in-form junior had put in a barn-storming performance last week when he won every race in which he took part, and he had clinched the final stage of the Isle of Man International Junior Tour the previous weekend.
