Changes to hire bikes at the Velodrome
Over the next few weeks the hire bikes at Newport Velodrome will be replaced with new Dolan bikes fitted with Look Keo pedals. Therefore the current Look Delta cleats will not be compatable with the new bikes. So dont forget to buy some Look Keo cleats if you use a hire bike.

Amy Hill becomes Junior World Champion
Amy Hill, an Ex Newport Velo Member, along with her team mates competed at the Junior World Track Championships in Glasgow, winning gold as well as smashing the world record twice in one day. In the Qualifing of the Womens Team Pursuit the team recorded a time of 4:38.708 which was fast enough to break the world record which had only been set by Italy a few weeks earlier at the European Championships in Portugal. The Final started off as a difficult one to call, with Russia slightly ahead, then GB, then Russia until eventually the British girls started to get the better of the Russian team and went on not only to win the Gold medal, but to take back their World Record once again, finishing in a time of 4:35.085.
An emotional podium ceremony followed before the girls were mobbed for their autographs by children in track centre.
