Lea Valley Velopark Circuit race 2

They breed them tough at Jubilee - bear arms on such a cold day!
The second of this years two circuit race events took place on a chilly Friday just before half term. This time round we gave the year 4 and 5 riders coaching sessions for the first hour focussing on cornering, ascending and descending and using their gears. This proved successful as it means more time on the bikes for the riders and they are improving their technique. For instance there were less riders pushing their bikes up the hill due to poor gear choice than previously. We will continue this model into the remaining events this season.

Training practise before the races - focusing here on cornering technique
 - inside pedal up looking where they are going, accelerating out of the corner.
