2013 European Masters Track Cycling Champs: Newport, Wales.

Harri Rajaniemi headed from Finland to Wales to compete in the 750m TT and Match Sprint in the 40-44 age group.

The TT was not ideal as he false started and was 500m into his ride before Commissaire's signalled him to stop. He only had one heat before his re-ride.

In the Match Sprints he qualified 5th, lost the first round ride, won the repecharge, lost the 2nd round, won the repecharge, lost the 3rd round and placed 2nd in the repecharge leaving him in 5th place in a competition that was opened up to include 4 35-39 age group riders.

It was his first competition at this level and sprint competition on an indoor track so given us lots to work on for World Masters Track Cycling Champs in early October.
