Irish Youth Riders In UK Track League Action

Katie Reilly and Rachel White took part in the Johnson Jets Track Event at Glasgow Velodrome on the 18th of January.

Both riders were supported by the Women’s Commission Rider Race Bursary, and were the first two successful applications of 2020.

The event consisted of four races, an Elimination,  two Scatch races and a Points race.

There was a field of twenty five racers,  only three short of the maximum allowed at this level.
Katie & Rachel said that It was an amazing opportunity to race in such a large field with such a high standard.
The First race of the day was the 32 lap Points Race, followed by the Elimination which went well with both girls placing high.
The last two events were the 32 lap scratch races, and both riders had to contend with a high pace and attacking riding from the gun.
