DHL sprint school 2008

Over 50 riders travelled from across the UK to take part in the DHL Sprint School racing day on December 6 at Manchester Velodrome. British Cycling coaches Tim Buckle and Gary Coltman organised an action packed day with six hours of competition for the youngsters.

Tim was delighted with the day, and even more with how much the riders had improved over the season. He said: "Well that was mint. Objectives of 2008 were about having fun and showing improvement. Better get my head down and make 2009 even better. Thanks everyone you know who you are."
