"Some clubs will give them a chocolate bar in they win, but the guys got medals this time. It was fun watching their faces because they get pretty excited about that."
A point system was in place on Saturday, combining each cyclist's results in a time trial, scratch race and sprint derby race for an overall score.
"They compete in three different type of races and get awarded points depending on how well they went in it and then they tally them up and that's how they decide the actual champion," Robinson said.
"It's kind of like a lead into the sprint competition as they get older. This one was a shorter race with not many people on the track at the one time."
"The kids that won medals meant that everyone that went won something.
