Tamworth considers road racing switch

TAMWORTH Cycling Club could trial new race days when it begins its new road racing season after Easter.

Tomorrow morning the club completes its criterium racing season with club championships in A, B and C grades at Goddard Lane.

Then the club  has an Easter break before beginning its road racing season, a season that could start on the first Sunday after Easter and not Saturday as normal.

In the past the club has raced Saturday afternoon road races, publicity officer Mal Nash said.

“But there’s been a few whispers around that we might trial Sunday morning road racing,” Nash said.

“There could be a change – a few of the boys are talking about going to Sunday morning racing. 

“And it could mean the first half dozen races might be on a Sunday morning but that might be decided after the criterium club championships.”

Those club championships start 8am tomorrow.
