Bad weather put pay to two track meetings at Welwyn Wheelers Cycling Club but there was still action to be had elsewhere.

The Friday Track League meeting at Gosling Sports Park was rained off while the threat of strong winds on Saturday meant the second round of the East Region Omnium Series was deemed unsafe to run.

The Omnium at Reading where the girls were racing was also cancelled
