FSL team in BNZ Corporate Challenge at the Avantidrome

Flight Structures is fortunate to be based close to the Avantidrome, which is a world class velodrome on the outskirts of Cambridge.  Jon, Clyde and Brett are all regulars at the velodrome, so this year we decided to enter a team in the BNZ Corporate Challenge which was held over the past two weekends.  As they are experienced riders, they completed in the Open Men's section of the Cambridge Pursuit.  After six races, both time trials and against other teams,  the FSL team ended up in 6th place.

The Cambridge Challenge consists of a three person team racing over six laps, or 1500m.  All three riders complete two laps, then the front rider peels off, the second rider then leads for another two laps,with the final rider completing the last two laps on their own.
