Some Beautiful Days This Week

Three simply beautiful days at the Track this week--tonight capped off our first week of open weekday training and it was clear skies, and a gorgeous sunset, albeit a bit chilly by 7.15pm. The temperature was as high as about 60 at 4 o'clock, but it was still bearable by 6pm, although definitely dropping quickly. We rode 50 laps into the wind on the back straight, and we definitely felt it, but still so great to be rolling on the track after a winter indoors. Over the past couple of weeks, we've cleared an enormous amount of trash off of the property, patched the track in several places and even have the 1st 3 boards back up trackside. Ken McCallum was at the track rolling for a solid 90 minutes on his pursuit bike just coming off of a few weeks of training in CA at the ADT center. With the first week behind us, we look forward to the Try the Track Clinic in 2 weeks--there's still space for those interested in an intensive learning experience, and then racing in May. Looks like rain this Saturday, please check in our site for any rain cancellation notices; we've also put a Weather Channel link right on the home page to see current weather in Londonderry. Thanks for reading. Jeff
