Results - PACC Track Racing 2/12/2009 - Teams

The inaugural Trak Cycles Track Series came to a conclusion last Wednesday night with the running of the final event – Teams. Every rider was randomly designated a Team Colour – Red, Blue & Green, with points from each race adding to the Team’s total. The Blue Team got off to the best of starts with Sam Croft and Scott Hallandal taking out the Junior Team Sprint and followed up with Mark Glowacki, Will Gower and James Glasspool winning the Open Team Sprint.
The other main Team event of the night was the 80 lap Madison. It was fantastic to see 6 quality teams take to the boards and put on a skilful display of teamwork – slinging each other into the sprints every 10 laps at high speed. The Red Team dominated the event with Dale Parker and Scott McPhee combining to take first place, followed by Damien Howson/Scott Benson and Tim Decker/Phil Mundy, both combinations also from the Red Team.

James Glasspool dominated the final of the A-grade Keirin, coming from a long way back to overcome the fading Ed Coad in the finishing straight.

For the record the Blue Team amassed the most points for the night, followed by Green and finally the Red Team.

Overall, the Trak Cycles Series was dominated by James Glasspool, who competed in each of the 5 events and took home a decent swag of points each time. Lachlan Hedley was the standout of C-grade holding down 2nd place and earning a promotion into B-grade, with Tom Morton narrowly edging out Mark Gregory for 3rd. Kyle Franson was the best B-grader in 5th place.

In the Juniors, Jai Angsuthasawit and Amery Frend tied for 1st after the 5 events with Carla Franson grabbing 3rd. Callum Scotson and Joshua Harrison were the only other 2 Juniors to compete in all of the 5 events, finishing 4th and 5th respectively.

Thanks go to Trak Cycles and GU for their support of the series that saw 84 Open and 28 Juniors compete in at least 1 event. A big thanks to the multitude of volunteers that made the events possible. A lot of work has gone into making this series as dynamic and exciting as possible and hopefully it has shown that Track racing in SA has a bright future. PACC look forward to your continued support for their Track cycling events in the New Year, starting on 6 January.
the ideal number of bikes is one more than you currently have
