Magorzata Wojtyra at Manchester Revolution

We have been working with Polish track rider Magorzata Wojtyra or “Gosia” for about six months, during this time she has had some fantastic results riding the Planet X Track T.O.R on the World's Track stage.

We went to meet her on Saturday the 23rd of January at Manchester Velodrome for the final event of the UK’s Track Revolution series, we all had a great day and below is her own update of the event.

"I had the pleasure of taking part in the final event in the Revolution series this weekend. As always the organization, atmosphere and racing were at the highest level!

With the Berlin Six Day just around the corner and the World Cup knocking at the door, I always intended to use the event to try out some new tactics, gain some extra race time and get in a good workout. Unfortunately, my legs still thought they somewhere in Hong Kong which made competing feel harder than it should have been.

"I started the point’s race well and I took the first two points laps but after GB Rider, Laura Trott got away from the group and put a lap into the peloton it was always going to be hard to pull the race back. There was an extremely strong contingent of British riders on the track and I was fighting hard for second place with Emily Nelson but a well-timed attack from Emily and Laura caught me out of position as they took another lap leaving me with third place.

I had a good day in all but was challenged by the British riders as they worked well together.

I also took  the opportunity to try out the new Planet X Aero Road Helmet which was great, I will be putting this to test both on the track and in the tunnel over the next few months so will keep you all updated."

The break down on the day was as follows:

-          23 World Class Riders

-          4 Races in 8 Hours

-          Approximately 180 Revolutions of the Track

-          Average Points Race Speed - 46.7 KM/H (World Cup Level)

-          Two Third Place Finished (Points Race, Elimination Race)

-          6th Place Scratch Race

-          12th Place Elimination Scratch


You can keep up to date with my movements and my road to the World Cup and the Olympics (hopefully) on my facebook page and twitter.
