The Skidders

Another fantastic day with Ride & Skid it yesterday and the weather was fine although it did look like it was going to bucket down at one stage during the afternoon.

A few photos from Session 1 when the lads and lassies are familiarizing themselves with the bikes and the track. Everyone takes this session carefully and up to now I’ve not seen a faller in this session.







Session 2 - Adam, Aidan & Les show the wannabe speedway riders how to do a skid or a slide. It’s certainly not as easy as Aidan, Les & Aidan make it look as most of the riders find out!


Adam explains how it should be done


An early faller


Getting going!


Oops - he was ok


What it should look like


Yeh - getting there


This fella (Aidan Collins)can do it with his eyes shut! His next trick is blind folded!


By Jove he's got it!

Session 3 & 4 are pretty much the same, however during Session 3 the riders are led out by Aidan Collins who shows the riders the right lines to follow around the track. Session 4 the riders are left pretty much to their own devices and they do generate some speed and some excitement.


Aidan leads the riders out for Session 3











And this one is only for the braver riders


The session ends in a blaze of glory - only kidding

Thanks for looking.
