The crowd was roaring at the Northbrook Velodrome last night as Lynn Rivier took the win in the final race of the evening for the women’s category 4 field. Lynn took up track cycling last year at the youthful age of 60. Although she is often competing against ladies half or a third of her age, she is very much in the mix of things. Last night’s win came in the win and out where Lynn attacked in turn 2 and held off the field in a nail biting finish. Congratulations, Lynn, it was awesome!
