Derby Arena Track Programme

Structured Quality Training (SQT)

Structure Quality Training sessions are for more experienced track cyclists or newly accredited riders looking to further improve their race skills and knowledge. These sessions will cover the basics of the sprinting and endurance events and improve rider skills. They will also test your fitness and prepare you for various types of racing. SQT sessions are delivered by a qualified coach and offer more formal and race-centred opportunities. 

Endurance riders

If you are looking to develop your endurance skills and fitness then any Structured Quality Training (SQT) session is suitable. The sessions include drills and race scenario's to help develop your riding ability and track skills, including knowledge of track races, technical and tactical skills and an element of physical preparation for racing.

Madison SQT

A session focusing on both the technical and physical aspects of the Madison discipline. Whether you have ridden Madison before or not, come and learn everything required to train and race in Madison. Accredited riders only.

Sprint SQT

A session focussing on sprinting skills, new riders wanting to try sprinting welcome along with experienced riders. Accredited riders only.

Beginner SQT

A rider development session for riders newly accredited or returning to track cycling to help develop the confidence and skills to move on to the general SQTs.

Derny paced SQT 

Derny sessions are great for those looking to improve leg speed, strength and power. The session is suitable for experienced riders and is fast-paced.

Gearing recommendations are 92"+.

For further information on any of the above sessions please speak to a Derby Arena coach.

Drop in sessions

These sessions are for those looking at gaining some track time in an unstructured session. The nature of the session allows riders to complete efforts, try new gears and spend time on the track with coach supervision.

Discipline Specific SQTs

For those looking to practice sprint or pursuit efforts, we have a number of sessions to cater for this. The sessions have a lower number of spaces to ensure enough time for efforts. This typically looks like 10 minutes for sprint and 20 for pursuit efforts rotating over a 2-hour session, a typical number of efforts for riders is 4 sets.

Youth SQTs

For those riders aged 12-15 who attain accreditation can attend the Youth SQT. This session follows the same format as senior SQT sessions, however, is more suitable for younger riders. The speed and drills completed are appropriate and give an opportunity to learn about other skills such as standing starts, flying and rolling efforts and track craft both on and off the bike.

Gearing must be inline with British Cycling restrictions.

Women's Development Sessions

This session is great for those who have ridden before and achieved a stage 2 pass or have approval through the Women’s Friday novice session.

The session will include group riding skills, training efforts and where suitable some race based scenario’s. The session will give riders the ability to apply for track leagues or for those that already race the opportunity to further develop.

Full Accreditation can be gained at this session but is dependent on the skills achieved and would require sign off from the Derby Arena coach's. The session includes bike, helmet and shoe hire.

*Please note the session is priced at a one hour price due to sharing the session with another group. The two session will not be mixed on track, so each group will rotate every 20 minutes on and off track.
