Juniors and seniors from Tri3 Sleaford Triathlon Club got some pre-season training under their belts at Derby Velodrome last week.

Many of the club’s seniors braved the track for a three-hour cycling training session with top velodrome coaches as they stepped up preparations for a busy season ahead.

Stewart Lancaster, who organised the day, was very impressed by the hard work of all participants.

Many of the juniors were able to build on previous experience on the track and the session culminated in team pursuit and keirin races.

The club is hoping to make the velodrome a regular feature of its training in the coming months.

As with all training sessions, the club welcomes new members along.
