Posted: Fri, 12 Jul 2019 08:38
On Tuesday, 9th July the Go-Ride Cycling Super Series Level 3 hosted the Year 5/6 finals at Melton Mowbray Rugby Club.
After postponing the initial scheduled competition in June, the weather was finally on form, with a dry day which meant great conditions for the cyclists.
Each of the heats involved 5 individuals working as a team to finish in the fastest possible time, the final time recorded once the last player crossed the finish line. Finals consisted of two stages:
- Italian Pursuit
- Cross Country Circuit
The Italian Pursuit was highly competitive race. All teams stormed through the heats in a battle between the districts, with some very close timings! The Cross Country Circuit proved to be the biggest test, as the track proved to be very technical with various corners to weave in and out mixed with getting of and on the bicycle.
It was Blaby & Harborough's Greenfield who finished quickest overall, with Hinckley & Bosworth's Millfield LEAD Academy in close second.
The Spirit of the Games Winners, West Leicester, showed they knew all values leading to become the Spirit of the Games winners. The entire team showed great attitude towards making a great team and even went beyond the depths of good sportsmanship by cheering the opposition on to finish the difficult cross country race!
The results of the final positions follow as:
