Latest Results and News

Hethersett Hawks/Swinton and Co opened their 2015 South East League campaign with a convincing win at Great Blakenham.  Both teams were down on full strength and struggling for early season fitness but, apart from a maximum by Lewis Osborne, the home side had little to trouble the solid Hawks. The visitors lost just one race in each half opening the match with a Dan Butler / Dan Chambers 7-3 win. Dan Chambers was the pick of the riders suffering his only defeats at the hands of Osborne.

Hethersett could only track four riders in the Division 2 match so were always facing an uphill task with tired legs but still gave a good account providing eight race winners in the 13 heats.

The first team are next in action on March 29th when they visit champions Ipswich Whirlwinds.

The first action on the Hethersett track this season took place under floodlights with an open evening for members of Hethersett Velo Club. They fully enjoyed the difference in the bikes to what they are used to and sampled normal racing as well as time trials, handicaps and relay races.
The cycle speedway club welcomes any groups who want an evening with a difference.

This season sees two big events coming to the Hethersett Memorial Playing Field track - a British Women & Girls League fixture in May and a British Youth and Junior League National Round in July.

Go Ride Status Achieved

 

The Hawks have finally been granted the coveted GO-RIDE status by British Cycling. We have been trying for over two years to put everything in place to get this “kite-mark” which confirms we are a well-run and structured club with all policies in place.  

 

The application has been led by Dave Chambers with help from Ian Grange,  Well done – now we can go for the next level of CLUBMARK!
