What a week at the National Junior Track Championships event at Newport velodrome for Wolverhampton wheelers junior and youth rider's. Georgia picked up a national jersey in the Keirin and silver in the Sprint and another silver in the 500m TT. Will Manfield and Matt Lewis rode the scratch and points Matt qualified for both the scratch and points final taking a lap in the points qualifier. Both finals were full bore Matt finished 11th in the scratch. The 120 lap Points final was lined out with no rider's able to take laps, Matt just couldn't get in the right move to take points sprints. Will gave it everything in the Kilo and posted a respectable time. Sophie, Ethan and George competed in the scratch and points riding against a strong field and performed well. Sophie almost took max points in the final sprint after a 6 lap break, getting caught in the final 50 metres. George rode in the madison which was blown apart in the first sprint, he rode hard all race. Great to see the wheelers mixing it with the best.
