Last Wednesday we took a team of Year 6 girls to compete in the South Bucks School Sports Partnership Cycle Event at The Beaconsfield School. The team comprised Lara, Siena, Ella, Alice G, Nefeli and Ava.
The competition was in two phases and included sprint and endurance race elements. The sprints were approximately 80 metres in length with each member of the team racing in a separate wave, gaining points according to their finish position. The endurance stage was also in waves and involved a three minute mountain bike course where the girls needed to be able to change gear, climb and descend, overtake and corner.
The girls all raced really well and the team finished in second place. Congratulations go to Lara, in particular, for coming 3rd in the final winning an individual bronze medal.
