School Games cycle continues with Go-Ride

Last week saw another exciting School Games Super-Series Final take place, as the action took to two wheels.

Ahead of the all important Summer Championships, Melton & Belvoir picked up victory in the Year 5/6 Mixed Go-Ride Cycling. And the Year 7/8 Mixed victory went to Blaby & Harborough.

Teams of six battled it out across two separate courses, beginning with a relay event across a tough uphill terrain. Competitors went one by one, with an athlete from each team racing at any time. The second competition saw teams race continuously on a steadier surface, with one racer dropping off from each team after every circuit until all members crossed the line.

In the Year 5/6 race, Melton & Belvoir picked up the medals as Stathern Primary School were crowned champions across the two courses. They finished ahead of North Charnwood, who were represented by Orchard Primary School.

Lutterworth College achieved glory in the Year 7/8 competitions, with South Charnwood grabbing second courtesy of Rawlins Academy.

The afternoon was added to by GO GOLD athlete James Teagle, who was on hand to provide inspiration having already starred in triathlon competitions across Europe.

The full table for Year 5/6 is:

1. Melton & Belvoir
2. North Charnwood
3. South Charnwood
4. Oadby & Wigston
5. Rutland
6. Hinckley & Bosworth
7. North West Leicestershire

And in the Year 7/8 Go-Ride Cycling:
