Bournemouth Telesoft Track League #5, Report/Results


Tom Day (Poole Wheelers) continues to dominate the Bournemouth Telesoft track league. On a warm, still, almost perfect evening, 16 year old Day won two scratch races, the Elimination race and a competitive match sprint up against Conal Low-Grier (VC ST Raphael) with Oliver Pettifer (Poole Wheelers) almost as impressive in the youth races.A programme of Scratch, Elimination, flying 200s & unknown distance races providing the action.
The competition is keen, the organisation is slick, even the weather is obliging but the fact is the Telesoft league is poorly supported, with only 17 signing on for round 5. Where is everybody?. There are mutterings about the expense, (£14 for the seniors), would another 20 riders appear if the entry fee was halved? It is acceptable to not make a profit but its unacceptable to make a loss and professional first aid cover does not come cheap. Some say the Velodrome is in the wrong place, "It should be in Southampton". The notorious Bournemouth traffic makes it hard to get to for 6pm! Its on the wrong night but no night is the "right" night! Local club politics,the elephant in the room! It’s a minority sport within a minority sport. Whatever the reasons there seems to be little appetite for track racing on the south coast, a youth Omnium in May, the Telesoft track league.... the only racing on the calendar for 2018 at the £750,000, British Cycling/Bournemouth Council funded facility. Of course racing is not the only measure of success but it does showcase the track, training sessions are well attended (what are they training for?) and taster sessions are popular but surely regular competition is the whole point?
