Shane - there was some talk about chaingang activities this Thursday, although it could have been light-headedness after climbing Streat hill!! Wink

Jonesy will no doubt update everyone - my attendance depends on how I feel after my drink-up/curry in London tonight...

Hope fun was had by all tonight, I'm going to struggle to get home from London in time.

Thursday's are a bit more possible potentially. If I can manage it, 6.45 where?

Beresford Lane destruction and devastation aside, amazing how a technique change made so much of a difference. To think we cruised round only a minute slower than the fastest lap last week yet it felt so much easier. More practise on that under effort conditions and it won't be long before we crack a sub 10 min lap. Well done chaps, good riding.

Yes, since the Handicaps finish this week, we could bring a training session out on the Thursday night as well as the Tuesday chaingang.

I won't be there tonight (7th Aug) but hope to be around for the the 14th and beyond.

I think Shane means instead of the handicaps which finish this week

In response to Shane's question "It sounds like the sprint training could be on a Thursday instead of the racing".

Yes to Thursday but ? instead of racing.
Obviously some prefer to race and that takes priority.

A debatable point to throw out there:
Some say it's better to get fit and speed in the legs through racing?

Sounds good, although my next Tuesday will be the 14th assuming I can get back from London in time. 6.45 will be quite tight as I'm not sure how early I'll be able to get a train home.

It sounds like the sprint training could be on a Thursday instead of the racing, did I read this right?

As the nights draw in, have people got PROPER front lights to continue this or will we stop when the clocks change?

This is Jonesy's message from the other thread - so far Gozza and myself are in agreement on new meeting place:


Good stuff for starters and great everyone enjoyed it which is the main thing.

There'll be a couple of changes made to the format next week over the first 2 laps but the final 2 laps remain the same.

What do you guys think about changing the start/end to Travis Perkins/Wivelsfield school?
The reason being was that at half way (2 laps) we could take a short recovery ride by continuing 200m along South Road, turn left into Downsview Drive then left back onto North Common Rd and ready to start again. About 3-4 min recovery and chat.

If agreeable, can we meet at Wivelsfield School at the end of 100 acre lane still at the same time of 6:45?

bounce
Moving on to the week after next and if there was no racing on Thursday evenings, we could do a different sort of training too. At least it's some prep for next year. And that's lead out and sprint training.
With safety a priority in mind, somewhere relatively quiet, a short loop and with lighting if required, we could use Charles Ave, York Road and Jane Murray Way? Near the main Burgess Hill Tesco. If anyone knows of a better safer small circuit then shout?

Idea being each lap a different sprinter is chosen, others wind up the pace along Jane Murray Way (sprinter sits in), then at a designated place somewhere along Charles Ave the final lead out man pulls over leaving the sprinter to have a go. Could spice it up a bit and then make the last man of the group to come from behind and challenge the sprinter.
Ok - so I'd loose the sprint every bloomin time so need to practise Very Happy

Just a thought for now and putting the idea out there?
