Poole Wheelers Club Coach Graham Hurst writes.........
Four riders from Poole Wheelers travelled to Hertfordshire to ride The Welwyn Wheelers Youth Omnium which is the first in a series of 5 in the South Ryan Hogkyns in the U10 Cat riding in his first open track meeting rode consistently to finish 7th Overall, he was 8th in the Points race 7th in the Scratch race and sprint and finished with 6th in the 1 lap time trial.

Alistair Fielding in the U12 Cat again riding his first open track meeting finish 3rd Overall. Although he only finished 10th in the first scratch race, he backed this up with 6th in the elimination race, 3rd in both the points and the Sprint and finally 4th in the 1 lap time trial Rebecca Hurst U14 finished 6th overall after placing 6th in the Scratch, elimination, points and sprint and only slipped back to 7th in the 2 lap time trial.

Harrison Fielding U16 put up a very impressive display of riding and was not out of the top 3 all day (3rd in the scratch sprint and 2 lap time trial, 2nd in the elimination and 1st in the points race) to give him 2nd place overall. Although all 4 riders rode in different age categories they showed great team spirit and were always encouraging each other. Next week is the second round of the series on their home track at Bournemouth, 91 riders are entered so it should be a good day of racing and the Poole Wheelers team will have 8 riders competing. Racing starts at 10.30 and will continue to mid-afternoon.
