It certainly seems that time on the new Velodrome in Milton has payed of for our Youth Racers, Axel Froner and Finlay MacEwen. Both of these young men put in extremely strong performances at the first Youth Cup of the 2015 season. This event was actually designed and an Ominium with both a Time Trail and a Road Race talking place. 

Axel was mixing it up all race long and even attempted a flying break-away during the final lap of the Minime Road Race. Unfortunately he could not make it stick, but this certainly made for an exciting finish. (editor's note: I had an opportunity to ride with Axel on holiday Monday and this kid has some serious power. He will be a force to reckon with in the near future)

Finlay was participating in his very first PeeWee Boys road race and despite his Rookie inexperience, his track-fitness proved to be a match for the other boys and he finished on the second step of the podium. 

Its becoming somewhat clich√© but we love saying it... the future of the Duke's Cycle Cannondale LapDogs Race Team is looking very bright.
