Message from Josef George, CWCC Youth Development Officer
Firstly, I would like to say, thank you for the responses from all the parents who got back to me regarding my previous email. I appreciate that you shared your opinion and thoughts on our sessions potentially restarting at Middlesbrough Sports Village (MSV). I’ve had lots of messages asking for an update so, hopefully, the information below will answer a lot of your questions.
Many congratulations to Charlie and Harry Tanfield on their performances at the Track World Cup held this weekend at Minsk in Belarus.
On Saturday, Charlie outclassed the opposition in the 4 km Individual Pursuit to win the gold medal in a time of 4 mins 12.253 secs. To put this time in context it’s less than two seconds outside Jack Bobridge’s world record and the only Brit to have gone faster is Chris Boardman.
On Sunday Charlie was joined by brother Harry, Dan Bigham and Jonny Wale riding as Team KGF in the Team Pursuit where they came away with the gold medal beating a Russian trade team in the final.
What next for the Tanfields?
Just a reminder that we are running track sessions on the velodrome at the Middlesbrough Sports Village on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. The next session is on 7 October and then every Saturday until 9 December. The sessions are supervised by our track coach, Richard Carter. They cost £5 per rider.
We would just like to give a quick update regarding the CWCC Track Sessions at MSV Velodrome.
We are holding them on Saturday mornings 10:00am-11:00am. The first official session is this Saturday, 22nd of July 2017. £5 a session. These are always weather permitting, any cancellations will be posted ahead of time as soon as possible, on our members’ Facebook page, our open Facebook page and our website, which is also getting a dedicated Track Page with all of the above details.
Any further questions could you please direct them towards our very own Track Coach in Richard Carter.
