Hillingdon SprintFest

Hi all,

Anybody here fancy the hillingdon Sprint Fest that John Leitch is putting on 14th Feb. Looks like a good training session!

Its a few hours on sprint training! Me, Mark Workman and James Graham are going so be good see any other Festival Faces! Here is more info! (Copied from the PowerPack email). Maybe see some of you there!

Improve your sprinting at the Hillingdon SprintFest

Coaching with a focus on power and tactics

There will be training exercises both with a lead-out man and where you’ll be going head-to-head on your own.

So you’ve trained hard this winter, done plenty turbo sessions, and you now think you can win races in 2010… think you could be handy when it comes to a bunch finish but how do you know?

This is a themed afternoon of coaching/training aimed at helping you hone those skills you need to do well in the last 200m.

Date: Sunday February 14

Venue: Hillingdon cycle circuit.

Time: 1.00pm (signing on from 12.30pm)

Finishing: 3.00pm-4.00pm…. depending on numbers and weather.

Club priority: teams of four will make for the best session… so rustle up three of your club-mates and come as a group.

On the agenda at the SprintFest will be a series of training races including:

  • longer two-lap races with each sprinter getting a lead-out train of three riders
  • shorter one-lap races with each sprinter getting a single lead-out rider
  • head-to-head sprints between two matched riders
  • head-to-head sprints between groups of four riders

Priority given to clubs fielding groups of four.

But not everyone will be in such a fortunate position, so there should be room for all combinations…. single riders, riders coming in pairs as well as groups of three…… whatever, we should be able to allocate you to a team of four when necessary.

Cost of places:

£12 in advance – members of clubs registered with the Surrey Cycle Racing League

£15 in advance – other riders

£22 on the day*

(*please note: a coach has an upper limit of 20 riders so once those places have gone then any additional riders turning up would have to be turned away…. on the other hand if numbers of advanced bookings were strong that would trigger me to make a move to track down another coach)
