Richard Rainville at Junior National Track Championships

Congratulations to Richard Rainville who competed last week in the 13-14 age group at the Junior National Track Championships held in Trexlertown, PA on the Lehigh Valley Velodrome. Richard placed in the top 20 in the 500m time trial and top 10 in the scratch race (a scratch race is basically a criterium held on the track). After a good qualifying ride in the points race to make the final his luck ended and he hit the deck hard. Despite the rough end, it's great that Richard was able to make the trip and represent AAVC at Junior Nationals, and we're wishing him a speedy recovery. Here are some great shots of Richard racing.
