SPRINT SUNDAY 3/4/07
On a very nice (can you say warm for a March day) Sunday morning we had a sprint semi-tournament. It was a semi-tournament because after everyone did a flying 200m for seeding, we broke into groups of six based on those 20om times so that everyone would be sprinting against riders their own speed. Because of that format, we really didn't have an overall winner, but there was some really good sprinting for this early in the season.
After the Match Sprints, those who were so inclined did 500m TT's, followed by several Team Sprints. Results are below.
With construction at the track starting on Monday, 3/5, this may be the last racing at Hellyer until June. Even if the track is open on the weekends for the next several months, this was the end on an era in terms of the present physical facility, so the sprinting was a great way to to say goodbye.
As an even better farewell was the sight of almost 30 young juniors on the track after the sprint racing ended. A good portent for the future of of Hellyer.
