There was some furious racing and questionable commentary at Harrison Street Velodrome last Sunday as the 2012 BCC Junior Clinic Championships were on.

Spurred on by the National Junior Track Championships that wrapped up the night before, and a late night in front of dodgy internet feeds (Gazzetta x Eurosport collab), the kids were pumped and the parents were cheering. There was a lot at stake, trophies for bragging rights at school the next day

Two highlights for me were:

  1. This future track star giving his all amongst bigger riders and taking the win

Huge props to the Morgans and other volunteers who give up countless Sundays so that kids can learn to ride & race track and get stoked on bikes.

I’ve sent that nipper to sooo many people already. What a champ…

No joke within 2 years that pain face kid will be able to beat me for sure.

By the looks, the pain face doesn’t differentiate. It stays consistent throughout. Love it!
