Fresh back from a successful trip to the UK National Track championships, our ever impressive Warriors Alumni Jenny Holl and Rhona Callander headed back down south for one final bit of track action before settling into a solid block of training prior to the road season kicking off.
On the 4th February the British National Omnium Championships was held in Derby. This is a senior track even with elite riders taking part and sell-out crowds. The format (for the women) is a 7.5km Scratch Race, 7.5km Tempo Race, Elimination Race and a 25km Points Race.
Rhona Callander - 5th
Jenny Holl - 12th
Both have done very well to finish this highly racing against senior opposition, but Rhona's result bears special mention. Of the riders who finished ahead of her, 3 are professionals, 2 of which have MBE's, and all 4 are Elite category riders. The winner of the event Katie Archibald MBE from Milngavie, is an olympic gold medalist! This is an absolutely phenomenal result for Rhona and well worthy of applause, chapeau.
