Red Rocks Racing used tactics and strength to notch up their first win in the Team Scratch race at round
4 of the Burkes Cycles Speed League at the Wellington Velodrome in Hataitai. Jon Barnes edged Nick Warren (Burkes Cycles) after the duo broke away with two of Barnes' team mates just three laps into the 20 lap race.
September may have arrived at Palmer Park but the riders were greeted with beautifully warm conditions for the Round 18 of this season’s Reading Track League. These fine conditions, coupled with many riders’ lives returning to normality after summer breaks, led to one of Palmer Park’s highest attendances of the season - the last event of the evening, the AW Cycles 20k saw 30 riders start the event.
