BREAKING CLUB NEWS : Tech Park criterium Training
Posted by Damo on 2015/1/24 13:13:38 (54 reads)

Tech Park Criterium training

With our first race at the new tech park circuit looming, Damo from The Watts Factory/FTP Training has offered to run a training day on Saturday morning from 7-8am on the 31 of January.

The intent of the session is to educate club riders on skillset required to race on a tight criterium circuit safely, but also some tips and advice to ensure you enjoy your racing experience.

The nature of the circuit is very different to Flinders and quite a few club members wont have raced on this style of circuit before. Damo has raced in NRS crits and is a former state and National Masters criterium champion. It is a great opportunity learn in a controlled environment before the first events commence.

The session is open to all club members with a senior race licence, do not bring juniors as they will be looked after when jnr training recommences. Please be out the circuit by 6.45 to ensure we start on time. If the group is large enough it will be split according to grades as required.

BREAKING CLUB NEWS : Nowra Junior Development Program
Posted by Damo on 2014/11/4 14:26:55 (129 reads)

Starting this Wednesday the 5th of November The Nowra Velo club will start a Jnr Development program to held out at the Main Road 92 Technology Park. Sessions will be held on Wednesday nights from 6pm -7pm and every 2nd Saturday at the same place at 5pm. I calender of dates will be posted here and on the website.

The intent of this program is to take young riders into the club and develop their bike handling skills, knowledge of riding on their own and in groups, increased awareness and safety on the bike an ultimately prepare them for competing and racing as they get older.

The Wednesday session will primarily target skills for all levels, the Saturdays will be an opportunity for them to test their mettle in some controlled timed events. Our hope is to provide a pathway for these juniors to progress into the graded ranks of the club and begin racing in their own right. As Juniors reach the required level they can then turn up on Sundays and compete in the appropriate grades.

The sessions will be run by FTP Training coaches, Mel Kilby and Damian Mason, both are level 1 Cycling Australia coaches. Club members who have children who would like to attend any or all of these sessions will be encouraged to assist where possible. All those participating must be members of the Nowra Velo club either as a full or junior member.

Parents with children who are interested but are not yet members can attend and observe any of the sessions, but will need membership to participate. All Nowra Velo club members are encouraged to spread the word to any kids out their interested in having a go. Road bikes are not necessary initially as they will not be racing, but the bikes must be road worthy and they must have an Australian Standards approved helmet.

We will begin on Wednesday night from tomorrow and follow the schedule below from then on. If you have any questions please contact Damian or Mel

Aaron Coghlan, Matt Wright, Paul Mackie, Godfrey Green will also make the race where Nick Johns should have an A grade start following his win the NVC B grade championship recently.
