Cyclocross Crazy

year 6 girls leaders

11/11/16 - Hackney Downs

The sun shone bright on Armistice day as 87 riders from nine schools made their way to Hackney Downs to take part in round two of this years Young Hackney Primary Schools Cycling League. Cyclocross was the dish of the day and the riders were crazy for it.

Twists and turns and a few up and downs alongside slippy leaves and the inclusion of a hurdle made for a demanding course - how would the riders tackle it?


Lovely day for a race


The first to race were the year 5 girls. ashleigh from Millfields led from start of the 5 lap race to end lapping all but five of her nearest competitors. Ruby from Gayhurst came from behind to beat Taejah from Millfields into 2nd place.

Next up were the year 5 boys racing for 5 laps. Milo from Jubilee stormed away from the rest of the field leaving a close battle for the other podium places between the Millfields duo of Milton and Solomon alongside Che from Southwold. Che faded towards the end whilst a moment of high drama saw Milton slide out on the penultimate cornet allowing Milton in for 2nd place. great racing.
