Hi folks,

This is our motley University Club trying our best to put a Team Pursuit team together. We've got a rare opportunity of a) having a track (Calshot) nearish by and b) having several strong riders all wanting to race track.

Calshot being only 140m in length it makes everything more difficult. It is also a freezer in there in the winter so is pretty darn uncomfortable. That said doing this really puts Team GB's efforts in to perspective. We're riding 5:20 for 4 km with a group of capable 2nd cat and 3rd cat riders. It's a looong way off 4:00! Yikes.

We've got track time Bournemouth, Newport, London coming up before heading to Manchester for the University Champs in May. It'll be interesting to see how much we can bring that time down.
