On April 26th myself, Josh, Jack and Joe went to the midlands track championships stage one which was at the Derby arena. This was the first official race at Derby Arena and first proper indoor velodrome race that we had done. In the Omnium there were 5 races TT, elimination, scratch, keirin then points. I thought it was hard and I now know what I need to do to be better. The end results were Josh coming 1st and Jack coming 5th in the u12 boys, I came 16th in the u14 boys and Joe coming 30th in u16 boys. I enjoyed the scratch race the most. It was my best race because I saw a gap and went for it but the group above me used the bank to come over the top of me. The elimination was good but I got blocked and I thought there were people behind me so I was eliminated. Overall we all did a good job and I think we are all going to the other 2 races.
