Tigers coaches took part in a track cycling skills session today, lead by Lead Coach Neil Kininmonth who has completed his Track Cycling Discipline Specific Unit. This is in preparation for our grass track cycling sessions which will begin very soon at Mackie Academy.
During the session Neil coached us all in starting and stopping, moderating speed and group riding. Many of the skills involved are very similar to road cycling except that these bikes are fixed gear (so you cannot stop pedalling) and they have no brakes.
Unfortunately the GoPro battery ran out before the group demonstrated the perfect ‘through and off’ formation, building up a fair speed together.
