We recommend between 4 and 6 'Track Skills' sessions before taking the training accreditation test. It is important that a rider is very comfortable riding a track bike on the velodrome before moving on, because only then can he or she start thinking about what is going on around them rather than just basic control. The Intermediate sessions are run at a quicker pace than the Track Skills sessions and we are simply looking for riders to be safe (and not a risk to others) riding in that environment.
Some riders become competent faster than others of course, so if in any doubt, just ask one of the coaches who will be happy to help and advise.
Makes perfect sense! Thanks.
